1. What qualifications do your driving instructors have? I have completed a rigorous testing process, Part 1 is theory with a minimum pass rate of 80% in each of the 4 categories – Part 2 is a challenging test of my driving and Part 3 is the test of teaching standards. This is measured over 17 competencies under 3 categories to ensure I can manage risk, plan an appropriate lesson for the students needs and have a robust knowledge that allows high quality teaching strategies. I have a Green Badge denoting ADI status. Some instructors choose to apply for a teaching licence after Part 2, this is a pink badge and denotes the trainer is in training. If no badge is displayed – Who is this person? What qualifications do they hold? You have the right to request and inspect the badge of your instructor at any time.
