Become A Driving Instructor

Becoming a driving instructor is a great career choice for anyone who loves driving and wants to help others learn this important skill in a safe and fun environment. Here are the steps you need to take to become a driving instructor:

Step 1: Check Your Eligibility To become a driving instructor, you must meet certain eligibility requirements. You must:

  • Be at least 21 years old

  • Hold a full UK driving license for at least three years

  • Have no more than six penalty points on your driving license

  • Pass a criminal record check

  • Meet the eyesight requirements for driving

Step 2: Take a Qualification Course To become a qualified driving instructor, you must take a qualification course approved by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). There are three parts to the course:

  • Part 1: Theory and Hazard Perception Test

  • Part 2: Driving Ability Test

  • Part 3: Instructional Ability Test

Step 3: Apply for Registration Once you've completed your qualification course, you can apply to be registered as an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) with the DVSA. You'll need to provide proof of your qualifications, pass a criminal record check, and pay a fee.

Step 4: Find a Franchise Once you're a qualified driving instructor, you can choose to work independently or join a franchise like MerseyDrive. Joining a franchise can be a great way to get the support and resources you need to build a successful business.
