What is involved?

Theory test - Part 1

The exam consists of two parts; you have to pass both parts at the same time to progress to the next test. The first part is a multiple choice of 100 questions; the second part consists of 14 video clips each lasting 1 minute.

Driving test - Part 2

A 1 hour Driving test, testing your driving ability to a very high standard. The test will cover many aspects of driving skills e.g motorway, urban, rural, reversing etc.

Instructional ability - Part 3

You will have to give practical driving instruction to a DSA examiner. They will start by acting the part of the learner driver who has little or no experience, then a driver who is nearly test standard, or a full licence holder. You'll need to past both Pre Set Tests at the same time.

This option is the complete driving instructor training package. Within this package we offer to supply you with 60 hours of training, 40 hours to cover the part 2 and part 3 tests and then we offer an extra 20 hours that is required to allow you to obtain a trainee licence to then teach "real" learner drivers.

Cost = £1800

Package 3:
This option is quite possibly the most flexible - Pay as you go, offering you the option to balance your finances if the unexpected comes along. Training material and tests will need to be purchased separately when embarking on the course.
