How do i become an Approved Driving Instructor?

Becoming an approved driving instructor, in our opinion, isn't easy.

It has some of the toughest exams to pass, but with some hard work and the right training - the greatest rewards!

You will be required to take 3 exams (view the details of those below) - you can only attempt these 3 times - all within a 2 year period. However, there is nothing stopping you passing all three within 3 months. Check out how Scott managed it here.


On the whole, many instructors wish to complete their training whilst still working full-time and on average will take 6-12 months to complete their training. Ultimately, its up to you!
