The Requirements

Before you start your training as a Driving Instructor there are some basic requirements. As long as you meet these basic requirements, we will guide you through the rest.  We will teach and support you so that you pass the three tests to become an Approved Driving Instructor.


You must be able to read a vehicle registration mark at a distance of 27.5m


You must hold a full UK or EU car driving licence for at least 3 years and be a minimum 21 years old before you can take the qualifying exam. You can usually start the qualifying process 6 months before the 3rd anniversary of getting your full licence.

Fit & Proper

All convictions, motoring and non-motoring that are still in force will be taken into account when the DVSA assess your suitability to be entered onto the register of Approved Driving Instructors.
