SO WHAT NEXT?
How does the journey to becoming a driving instructor work?
APPLY TO BECOME A DRIVING INSTRUCTOR
The first stage of starting your training is registering to become a driving instructor. You will need to apply for a DBS check and register with the the DVSA. Read all the information at the Gov.uk website
START YOUR TRAINING
Once you have applied to the DVSA you can then start revising for your Part 1 theory test. We will provide you with all the information, training and support to successfully pass all 3 stages.
START TRAINING REAL STUDENTS
After you have successfully passed both parts 1 and 2 tests, you will start your 40 hours in-car part 3 instructional ability training. When you have completed the 40 hours training, you have the opportunity to apply for a PDI (potential driving instructor) badge. With this, you can start teaching real learners and earn money - to gain even more hands on experience before your final part 3 test.
