How does driving instructor training work at NxtGen?

NxtGen ADI Training has three stages, these are:

Part 1 – Theory-based

To pass to part 2, trainees must answer 100 driving theory questions and to pass they need to get 85 of the questions right. All training materials and driving theory books are provided to you.

Part 2 – Practical-based

You will have to take – and pass – your driving test again. The practical test takes 60 minutes, and you must get fewer than six minor faults. To pass this stage you will need to cover 20 hours of driving tuition prior to taking the test to ensure you drive to the highest possible standard.

Part 3 – Teaching-based

To begin teaching learner drivers you will need to complete a minimum of 40 hours of Part 3 training to get your PDI Training Licence. PDI Training Licenses last for six months and a further 20 hours will need to be completed before you take your part 3 test.

This gives you the opportunity to earn while you learn. The Part 3 test lasts for one hour and requires that you take a pupil with you so the DVSA Examiner can inspect your level of tuition.

What do I need to become a driving instructor in Colchester?

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, then you will need to jump through a few more hoops to get accepted onto the NxtGen Driving Academy Driving Instructor Training Program. These are:

  • Criminal Record Check
    You must apply for a criminal record check even if you have one already. You can apply online or by post.
  • Apply for your ADI
    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

Standards need to be maintained, and not everyone is suitable to becoming a driving instructor. 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
