DVSA logo


The DVSA are the Government body who regulate driving instructors in the UK. Don’t worry if you are not academically minded the exams are practically based. The driving instructor qualification process is in 3 parts:

Instructor Course Part 1

Part 1 is a PC based multiple choice ADI theory and hazard perception test similar to the current test for learner drivers but you are required to answer 100 questions (not just 50) on a broader set of subjects and you need to score 57 as opposed to 44 on the hazard perception part. Theory course taken at your leisure with support from your tutor via e-mail, Skype or telephone. Course price £199.99. including books and DVD.

Instructor Course Part 2

Part 2 is a driving test, again similar to the current test for learner drivers but you are only allowed to make 6 minor faults (not up to 16 as on the L test). 20 hours driving tuition on a one-to-one basis with your tutor. Course price £1000. This part of the course will be taken in Southampton as motorway access is required.

Instructor Course Part 3

Part 3 is an instructional ability test, which came into effect on the 1st January 2018. As a result the examiner now requires to watch you give a driving lesson to a real learner and depending upon what they see will determine if you pass this third and final part of the qualification process. 40 hours tuition on a one-to-one basis including video lessons and tutorials. Course price £2235 including your accommodation on the Island.
