WHAT THE TRAINING COURSE ENTAILS
To become a driving instructor, you will need to pass three separate parts of the course.
Part 1 comprises of a Theory and Hazard Perception test. You will be asked 100 questions from 4 different categories, and will need to achieve a minimum of 85 correct questions, and also pass each individual category. You are given a total of 90 minutes to complete this section of the test.
The second section tests your hazard perception skills. There are 14 video clips, one of which will contain 2 hazards. You must score at least 57 marks out of a possible 75, to pass this test.
There is no limit as to how many times you are allowed to take this test. After passing Part 1, you will be required to pass Part 2 and 3 within 2 years, or you will have to start at Part 1 again.
Part 2 is an advanced test of your driving ability. It lasts around 1 hour and includes an eyesight test, as well as general vehicle maintenance and safety questions. You will be given 1-2-1 in-car training, practising all manoeuvres and mock test routes. You are allowed to take this Part 2 exam up to a maximum of 3 times.
After passing your Part 2 exam, you have the opportunity to take a Trainee Licence, which allows you to put your skills into practice, and also allows you to ‘teach for reward’.
The Part 3 exam is a test of your instructional and teaching ability. A supervising examiner will assess your instructional techniques, instructor characteristics, and core competencies, by role playing 2 different types of pupils (Phase 1, a new or inexperienced pupil, and Phase 2, a more experienced pupil, or even a full licence holder).
As mentioned above, we at Logic know that Part 3 is the most difficult and requires the most time to prepare for, so we start Part 3 training at the outset. We do not have a limited amount of training hours and offer at least 2 training sessions per week.
You will be graded on a scale from 1-6, requiring at least a 4 to pass.
Once you have passed Part 3, you will need to apply for your ‘green badge’, and will be placed on the register of approved driving instructors. We will supply you with pupils to get your earnings revved up as soon as possible!
