Driver Instructor Legal Entrance Requirements

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) requires each applicant to satisfy the following. You must:

      • hold a full UK or European Union unrestricted car driving licence;
      • have held it for a total of at least four out of the past six years;
      • not have been disqualified from driving at any time in the four years prior to application, and be a “fit and proper” person. All convictions (motoring and non‐motoring) will be taken into account when the DSA assesses your suitability to be entered on the Register. You will be required to have an enhanced level criminal record check, which is used to assess your suitability.

Driver Instructor Qualification Process

There are three qualifying exams to become a driving instructor.

      • A theory and hazard perception test (Part 1);
      • A practical test of your driving ability (Part 2);
      • A practical test of your ability to instruct (Part 3);

You must take and pass all three parts of the examination in this order and must successfully pass the Part 2 and 3 tests within two years of passing the Part 1 test. If you are unable to complete the examinations within this time you must start again from the beginning and pass each part once again.

You can take the theory test as many times as you wish but you are only allowed a maximum of three attempts at each of the practical tests within each two year qualification period.
