What does driving instructor training involve?

In order to fully qualify as a DSA Approved Driving Instructor there are three separate exams that you will need to pass within a two year time frame. You must pass all three in order and cannot take an exam out of sequence. The three exams are as follows:


1) Computer-based theory & hazard perception test.

This exam comprises 100 multi choice questions and a hazard perception test. Topics covered include knowledge of the Highway Code, driving and teaching techniques and the UK driving test. Reference material, mock examinations and Tutor Support are provided


2) Practical test of your driving ability


Whilst you are studying for the Part I exam, your in-car driving skills tuition will begin, in preparation for the DSA Part II examination, which is not unlike an advanced driving test. Training is conducted around nominated DSA test centres. The specially structured training sessions ensure your readiness for the Part II test and continue to develop your instructional ability.


3) Practical test of your teaching ability


When you have passed the Part II exam the final exam concerns in-car teaching ability. Your training will continue as it did during the previous stage but the focus is shifted to your teaching skills. This stage prepares you for the DSA Part III examination. So long as you put the effort in, we will too. We want you to be successful!
