Frequently Asked Questions

Qualifying for the Tests

The Driving Instructor qualification examination is in three parts:

  • Part One Test = a computer based theory & hazard perception test
  • Part Two = a practical test of your driving ability
  • Part Three = a practical test of your ability to instruct

You must take and pass all three parts of the driving instructor examination in this order and you must complete the whole examination within two years of passing the theory test. If you are unable to complete the examinations within this time you must start again from the beginning and pass each part again. You can take the theory test as many times as you want but you are only allowed a maximum of three attempts at each of the practical tests within each two year qualification period. Additionally, you cannot start the qualifying process again until two years has passed since you last passed your theory test.

Most people undertake training with an organisation which specialises in this field and we would recommend that you do so. Blue School of Motoring Driving Instructor Training uses only professionally trained and ORDIT registered instructors, to do the training.

This is not a legal requirement and you can apply for the examinations without having undertaken formal training. However, you may find it difficult to pass if you don’t. The qualifying process is not easy, and the pass rates are not high.

The pass rates for each of the three parts of the examination in 2011 were:

As you can see the pass rates are not very high, so without the help and guidance of a specialist organisation your chance of completing the course are greatly reduced.

The above statistics are based on information given to Blue School of Motoring Instructor Training from Driving Standards Agency.
