Steps to Become a Driving Instructor

Why are more and more people considering Driving Instruction as a viable alternative to other career options? Below you will find why. Simply by following the steps below:

1 – Pass the Theory test

This RSA approved driving instructor theory test has 100 multiple choice questions of which you must get 75% to pass. Questions are based over 4 categories, driving documents, road safety, pedagogy, car maintenance plus the overall category B driving test. This is all theory.

2 – Pass the Driving Test

This step will remind you of the same test you had to do with your instructor when you first got your driver’s license, only that this time it will be longer and obviously more demanding, we want you to show us that you have the control and technical ability of an expert. By passing this test you will go to the final step!

3 – Instructional Ability Test

The final test, here your skills as an driving coach will be tested, an examiner will play the role of a beginner and advanced driver and you must act as the teacher, correct him when he makes mistakes, answer his questions, guide him in an understandable, coaching style and adaptable way. This test will be divided into two half-hour lessons, keep in mind that the examiner will ask questions and make mistakes on purpose expecting you to act and correct him in a quick and timely way.
