How Training Works...

At Surepass, we make the journey to becoming a driving instructor seamless and straightforward, breaking down the process into four essential steps.

Theory Test

This is a 90 minute classroom style test, similar to the normal driving theory test. There are 100 multiple choice questions and 14 videos with potential hazards for you to spot.

Test of Instructional Ability

This is the final stage. An examiner joins you in the car while you teach. To pass, you will demonstrate that you are a patient, safe and effective driving instructor.

Trainee Licence

After passing parts 1 and 2, you can opt to get a trainee licence. With this you can legally charge for driving lessons before you're fully qualified.

Driving Ability Test

Very similar to the normal driving test, but to a higher standard. The test includes a wide range of road types and traffic conditions.
