What do I need to become a driving instructor?

To become a driving instructor, you will need to meet the pre-qualification criteria set out by the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency), which is:

  • Be at least 21 years old
  • Have held a full driving licence for at least 3 years

If you meet the above criteria, to train to become a driving teacher with NxtGen, you will need to take a few more steps, these are:

  • DBS Criminal Records Check
    You must apply for a criminal record check even if you have one already. You can apply online or by post. You can find more information about the Disclosures & Barring Service here, including how to apply.
  • Apply for your ADI (Approved Driving Instructor)
    Once your criminal record checks have been received, you can start the application process to become a driving instructor. You will need your driving licence number, details of any disqualifications, motoring or non-motoring offences, and any information on court cases that are being bought against you.

More information is available here.

Who cannot be a driving instructor

Whilst we want to encourage all who wish to be driving instructors as much as possible, some people will not be suitable.

Your application will be rejected by the ADI Registrar, if any of the following applies:

  • If you have been banned from driving
  • If you have 6 or more points on your licence
  • If you have convictions for non-motoring offences

If any of the following apply, it is likely that your application for an ADI licence will be rejected:

  • You have been convicted of violent, sexual, financial or drug-related crime
