So what is involved in training to be a driving instructor?

Part 1 Theory Test

Part one of the qualification process comprises two separate tests, and you are required to pass them both.

The theory test checks your knowledge of the Highway Code, general road safety, driving techniques, basic first aid knowledge and the theory of instructing a pupil. We will provide you with all the necessary training material, accessible online, and you can attempt as many mock tests as you wish on the training website to gauge your progress. The test lasts 90 minutes and you must achieve an 85 percent mark to pass.

Part 2 Practical Driving Test

The second part of the examination is a practical driving test designed to evaluate your driving ability.

Potential driving instructors must pass their theory test before moving onto part 2.

You must complete this test within two years of passing your theory test.

Part 3 Instructional Ability Test

The instructional ability test evaluates your ability to instruct a student. This is the final test in the process.

Students must pass both part 1 and 2 before moving onto the instructional ability test.

You must complete this test within two years of passing your theory test.

Trainee Instructor Licence

The DVSA will issue you with what is, in effect, a provisional license to ‘teach for reward’. This means that you can join our team here at 2nd2None Driving School as a potential driving instructor (PDI) and begin giving actual lessons. This is an extremely effective way of honing your skills in instructional ability ahead of your part three test. It also means that you start to make a living as a driving instructor.

Your trainee licence is valid for six months, and you will continue to receive 20 hours of in-car training on a one-to-one basis from one of our trainers prior to your part three test. On passing the test you can apply to be added to the DVSA register of approved driving instructors. The majority of trainees take this route.

Direct Route Option

A small number of trainee instructors choose to continue their training until test-ready without the use of a trainee licence.

The part 3 test of instructional ability is approximately one hour long. A DVSA examiner will watch you delivering a client-centered driving lesson to one of your customers. This can be a learner or a full licence holder. The examiner will be looking for evidence that you meet the national standard for driver and rider training.

You are only permitted three attempts at the part 2 and part 3 tests, so it is very important to choose the right school when deciding to train as a driving instructor.
