But first…

Before you apply, it’s a good idea to quickly check you’re eligible to become a driving instructor with us. You don’t need any formal qualifications, but the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) insists you will need:

  • A full UK or European Union / European Economic Area unrestricted car driving licence, held for at least four years
  • To have not been disqualified from driving at any time in the four years before you train
  • The ability to read a car number plate at a distance of 27.5 metres (90 feet)
  • To be a ‘fit and proper’ person, in the opinion of the DSA.

Any motoring or non-motoring convictions will be taken into account when you’re assessed for inclusion on the Register. You’ll also need an enhanced level Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) check (as from Spring 2007).
