When you train to be a qualified Driving Instructor with NxtGen Driving Academy a member of our Training Team will be on hand to offer support and advice throughout.

The First Steps
Step 1: Pre-qualifications and applications
In order to begin training to become a Driving Instructor, you must meet certain criteria as set by the DVSA – Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.
You must:
Be at least 21 years old
Have held a full driving licence for at least 3 years.

Criminal Record Check

If you meet the above criteria, then you can start the process of becoming a Driving Instructor.

Firstly, you will need to have a criminal record check. You must apply for one even if you hold one already. There are two ways to do this:

You can apply online by filling out an application in your browser.
After filling out your online application you must prove your identity. This can be done at a post office that offers the ‘CRB and ID verification’ service and will cost £6. You must provide 3 original forms of identification, these could be:
