Why become a driving instructor?
Most pepole want the attractive salary, flexible working hours, job security, the chance to be your own boss.
The demand for driving instructors in the UK is on the rise, and with the current economic instability, many people are looking to train in a career that will see them secure for life.
Because no previous experience is rquired to become a driving instructor, people off all ages and from all walks of life are entering the profession every day.
To become a driving instructor is not as easy as all the adverts make out
It’s not the case of just having your driving license for 4 years then take a driving instructor training course.
If it was that easy then everyone would be doing it and we would have more driving instructors than pupils.
To become a driving instructor is really quite hard as a lot of people have found out 25%of people doing driving instructor training don’t get through the part 1 exam (theory), another 10% don’t get through the part 2 exam (driving exam) and another 35% don’t get thought the part 3 (teaching exam) over 68% don’t make it at all.
As a driving instructor your day will be spent teaching people to drive safely, to understand the Highway Code and develop the skills which they will need to pass their final test. You will need to give each student targeted lessons depending on their strengths and weeknessess, constantly assessing them and adapting the training program to suit their needs. So what does a driving instructor earn? Well that depends on you because when you become a driving instructor you will have a choice to work as many or as few hours as you want, earning can vary from person to person. But if you are willing to work full time, you can easily achieve a salary of over £600.00 a week. However it is possible to earn far more than this.
If you do your driving instructor training with a big national driving schools you will have your training in two’s, for your training you will only get half the time as you will be car sharing it could take years to complete.
That makes a big difference when you talk about money as you are paying full price and getting half your training time.

With the state of public transport and the rate of population growth, the demand is going to do one thing — rise! With new government initiatives to improve road safety, the amount of driving lessons that learners need on the road on average to pass their test is increasing and people now have to pass their test more than once in their life due to the recent introduction of re testing for older drivers. That’s why there is such a large demand as somebody needs to teach all these extra leaner drivers and older drivers.

What you need to become a driving instructor!
To become a driving instructor you will have to study and pass 3 tests.
Part 1 Driving instructor Test!
Part one is entirely computer based.
You will be asked 100 multiple choice questions about all aspects of driving and driver training. The questions follow a similar format to those set in the learner’s theory test but cover a much wider spread of topics including teaching practice and principles.
The questions are banded into four sections
you must score 80% in each band and achieve an overall mark of 85% to pass.
This means that it is possible to get a score of 94% and still fail if you are weak in a particular band of knowledge.
In order to pass Part-One you also need to attain a pass mark of 57 in the HPT.
If you do not achieve this you will have to do the whole test again, including the theory test, even if you gained 85% or higher in the questions. The HPT comprises of a selection of short videos, showing real road scenes and potential hazards. You will be tested on fourteen film clips. These clips will be chosen at random from a selection of two hundred. You will be assessed on how soon you spot and respond to the dangers shown on screen. You will watch the video clips on a computer screen and you will need to click the mouse button at the correct time to identify the developing hazard ahead.
Part 2 Driving Instructor Test!
Part two is a test of your driving ability.
This test lasts for about an hour. You are limited to three attempts.
If you fail three times you will have to wait two years from the date that you passed your Part One exam before you can start over again. You will then have to re-take Part One.
Part 2 is the foundation on which your part 3 skills are built. It is entirely satisfactory to get through Part 1 under your own efforts, but your Part 2 training should be thorough, structured and developed as a firm foundation for the work to come at Part 3.
You need to demonstrate expert handling of the car controls and a progressive yet defensive driving approach. During the test you will show that you can control the vehicle safely, follow correct road procedure, recognise and deal with any hazards that are encountered using the MS-PSL routine and complete some basic set manoeuvres.
The test will require you to demonstrate your driving skills on a wide range of roads that can include dual carriageways, motorways, town and city centres, one-way systems and country roads.
You will also perform set driving manoeuvres from the DSA syllabus, including:
The emergency stop
Left reverse and right reverse into a limited opening
Hill start up
Hill start down
Turn in the road
Moving off (straight or at an angle)
The examiner will assess your driving in a number of areas including:
Your expert handling of the controls
Your use of correct road procedure
Your ability to anticipate and act upon the actions of other road users
Judgment of speed
Judgment of distance
Consideration for other road users
Expert use of the DSA ms-psl hazard routine
The hazard perception skills that were introduced at Part one, and the foundation knowledge that you developed during your Part one studies, should now be further developed as your trainer introduces you to the high standard of driving and professional competence you will need to pass this test. Every manoeuvre should be explained, demonstrated and practiced in great depth. It is vital that you build your driving skills to a very high standard at the Part two stage. Your Part 2 knowledge will lead to Part 3 success. Never forget how important Part 2 actually is.
Part 3 Driving Instructor Test!
Part three is a test of your instructional ability.
The test lasts for approximately one hour, and is the final part of the qualifying process. When you pass Part 3 you become a fully qualified driving instructor.
During this test you will have to give instruction and demonstrate your ability to assess and correct any driving errors that you see. The test uses ‘role play’ – that is that the examiner simulates learner drivers at differing stages of their training, your task is to sort out any problems exhibited and develop new skills.
The Part 3 test is in two phases. The first phase tests your ability to teach a novice or intermediate learner and the second assesses how you deal with a pupil of driving test standard. A Supervising Examiner (SE) plays the role of a novice in the first phase and of a pupil near test standard in the second phase.
You must score a minimum of Grade 4 in each phase to pass.
You are limited to 3 attempts. If you fail 3 times, you will have to wait 1 year from the date you passed your Part 1 exam before you can begin again. You will then have to retake and pass Part 1 and Part 2 again.
During phase-one the examiner will play the role of a learner with very little or no experience at all of the subject that you are asked to teach. During phase-two the examiner will play the role of a pupil with more experience and prior knowledge of the subject you are asked to teach. You will be assessed on your ability to match your instruction to the level of the pupils portrayed, observe and correct any errors and maintain a safe controlled learning environment.
You will need to treat each of the two phases as separate ‘mini lessons’ and ensure that you effectively teach the SE ADI the subject chosen for you on your test. So often, trainees struggle needlessly with the role play aspect of their training and in the test itself. Yet role play is a valuable learning and training tool if used correctly. We place a great deal of importance on developing the role play skills, so vital for your success. The need to treat the SE ADI as a learner is of great importance during the test of instructional ability.
Developing role play skills takes time and effort for most trainees. For many people, the role play environment is something completely new to them. They feel confused and a little embarrassed. Again, another reason why your instructor training needs to be on a one to one basis. The learning environment needs to be comfortable and relaxed for ADI trainees to obtain the maximum benefit from the role play experience. If you don’t feel at ease with the training situation, you won’t learn as much. If you feel uncomfortable with role play when you are one of two or three trainees in the car, your progress will be slower and you may not fully develop the skills needed.
You will have to ‘drive’ the car from the passenger seat, give good directions in good time, instruct your learner how to drive, spot and rectify any driving errors, keep the car and everyone else safe whilst always maintaining a calm, professional approach. No wonder your instructor training needs to be good.
