Part 1

The first of three, part 1 is a theory test. Included in the theory test is set of multiple choice questions and a hazard and perception spotting video task. This learning will take part via distance learning online.

Part 2

The second test is a practical driver test. In this section learning takes place in the car 1-to-1 over 5 modules (2 hours each) and this will provide an opportunity to ensure the applicant is driving to the minimum expectation to pass part 2.

Part 3:

Part three is all about assessing that the instructor is delivering a high standard of teaching to learners. An applicant has the choice of 2 options:

1.Trainee licence (PDI). -Recommended
On completion of the minimum 40 hours of 1-to-1 training the applicant may opt to take a temporary trainee licence which will permit the training instructor to gain valuable experience delivering real lessons to real learners and ultimately better preparing for the final part 3 test. Another great perk of this option is that is enables the training instructor to earn while they learn!

2.Straight into Part 3 test. 
Once the applicant is ready they may opt to go straight into their assessment for part 3.
