What's the process of training to become a driving instructor in Sunderland?

  • Part 1
  • Part 2
  • Part 3
    Instructional Ability

Consists of a multiple choice theory and video based hazard perception. We provide all training materials, books, software and hazard perception DVDs for the entire course. We also stage mock theories to help prepare and optional classes where a trainer can guide you.

In this practical, you will be required to demonstrate your driving ability in a one hour practical session. The DVSA expects you to drive to a very high standard on various types of roads, in town, on country roads, on fast dual carriageways and on motorways. Throughout the practical you will also need to perform various manoeuvres that you will be teaching your learners. Your Pass N Go trainer will help you to develop your driving skills on your in car training sessions, improving your competency and confidence to meet the required standards. They will also conduct mock practical’s to help you prepare.

This is an assessment of your instructional ability to teach others and lasts for approximately one hour. The DVSA examiner will watch you give a client-centred driving lesson to one of your pupils. You get to choose which pupil to take with you to the assessment, due to this we would highly recommend you apply for a trainee licence and earn while you learn. The best way to prepare you for giving driving lessons is for you to spend time in the car doing just that which is why we will promote you to start teaching people to drive whilst still in training and you can gain significant experience by doing so. Your Pass N Go trainer knows exactly what is required of you on the assessment and will help you practice delivering your lessons on the road where you can correct mistakes and get used to the skills required to help and guide learners through our modern day traffic.
