Part three – Ability to teach

Part three ability to teach test to become a driving instructor is considered the hardest test.

If you’re reading this then you have probably passed the Part 1 and 2, so there’s no reason why you can’t pass part three as long as you receive the right training. That’s why the DVSA only allow three attempts on each test, to ensure the standard of the PDI’s getting through to the final stage are there because of their standards not through repetition of trying.

THE TEST

  • There are two phases to the test, both 30 minutes long
  • The first phase is where the examiner will play the role of a pupil at either a beginner or partly trained level.
  • The second phase the examiner will play the role of a trained pupil who is generally approaching a driving test or already qualified.
