It is important to have an understanding of what is required when thinking of becoming a driving instructor.
The first thing you will need to do is to apply to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) to become an ADI. To do this you will need to inform them of your current driving licence and any offences.
You must have held a full licence for at least 3 years.
You must be over 21.
Your application can be refused if you have:
- been banned from driving
- 5 or more penalty points
- been convicted of any non-motoring offences
You will also need to have a Criminal record check or CRB check.
Your application is unlikely to be accepted if you’ve been:
- convicted of a sexual, violent, financial or drug-related crime
- banned from working with children
