Becoming a driving instructor is a great career choice. You’re always on the move, meeting new people and helping to guide them to become the safe drivers of tomorrow.
Training to become a driving instructor is not an overnight process. This can be a benefit to some potential instructors, with the ability to complete the training over three-to-six months or longer, depending on your lifestyle and existing work commitments.
Before you begin, you must have held a full driving licence for a minimum of 3 years and you will need to have a DBS check. Once this has been returned to you, you can submit a driving instructor application form to the DVSA and once approved you can start your training.
