Part One (Theory)
You will benefit from plenty of help during study for the part one test. You receive guidance and support on the part one study guide and recommended books. Cutting corners at this stage could lead to problems during part three. Many trainees simply practice answering questions. A detailed knowledge of the theory is essential for a successful career as an instructor.
Part Two (Driving)
For part two, you benefit from 10 hours of in-car tuition which will place you in the top 1% of drivers in the country. You may have a lot of driving experience but probably have developed some incorrect driving habits. Driving techniques have changed a lot over the years and so you will need to be brought up-to-date.
Part Three (Instructing)
You’ll benefit from extensive instructor training (40 hours). This is where one-to-one training really makes a difference. Sharing a car with other trainees is not a smart move. You would be diluting your training experience rather than maximising your time. You need, and will receive, our full attention.
