We are one of the few driving schools that offer no large upfront payments and a placement with our rapidly growing driving school when you pass.

The qualifying examination is in 3 parts carried out by the Driving Standards Agency.

Part 1

Theory and hazard perception test.

The theory test consists of a series of multiple choice questions. These are questions on road procedures, instructional techniques, car control etc.

The second part of the theory test is video based, designed to test your hazard perception. The majority of part 1 will be self instruction done at home.

Part 2

This is the driving ability test which is more advanced than a learner test.

To pass this test you must drive to a high standard. During the test you are only allowed 6 driving faults. Any serious faults will result in failure.

Part 3

The objective of this test is to assess your knowledge, quality of instruction and ability to teach.

Many consider part 3 to be the most difficult of the 3 parts.
