The Process

To become a qualified Instructor, you will need to pass three DVSA tests. The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency – DVSA (formerly DSA) (Driving Standards Agency) requires that anyone wishing to train as a Driving Instructor is a fit and proper person. The DVSA uses the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) to obtain criminal record checks of people in England and Wales, and Disclosure Scotland for people in Scotland, Driver Skills North East will guide you through this process. You should have no more than five penalty points on your licence, have held it for a total of at least four out of the past six years prior to entering the ADI Register after qualifying, and you have not have been disqualified from driving at any time in the four years prior to being entered in the register, and meet the physical criteria required to safely control a vehicle. You need the drive, desire and determination to succeed we will provide you with the skills, support and determination to ensure that you succeed.



Part 1 Theory Test

Consists of a multiple choice test and video based hazard perception test. We provide all training materials, books, software and hazard perception DVDs for the entire course. We also stage mock tests to help prepare.


Part 2 Driving Test

In this test, you will be required to demonstrate your driving ability in a one hour practical session. The DVSA expects you to drive to a very high standard on various types of roads, in town, on country roads, on dual carriageways and on motorways. Throughout the test, you will also need to perform various manoeuvres that you will be teaching your learners.

Your Driver Skills North East trainer will help you to develop your driving skills on your in car training sessions, improving your competency and confidence to meet the required standards. They will also conduct mock tests to help you prepare.


Part 3 Instructional Ability

This is a test of your instructional ability to teach others and lasts for approximately one hour. The examiner will act as a learner driver in two role play situations. You will be assessed on your ability to correct mistakes and your general manner.

The best way to prepare you for giving driving lessons is for you to spend time in the car doing just that.

Your Driver Skills North East trainer knows exactly what is required of you on the test and will help you practice delivering your lessons on the road where you can correct mistakes and get used to the skills required to help and guide learners through our modern day traffic.
