Check that there’s a green badge in the windscreen of your instruction car. This means your instructor is fully-qualified. Some driving schools place learners with a trainee instructor – with a pink DSA badge, and still charge full lesson rates without revealing that the instructor isn’t fully qualified.
Some driving schools advertise that they have ‘qualified’ driving instructors, but this doesn’t always mean that they are ‘FULLY QUALIFIED’. All fully qualified driving instructors display a green badge in their windscreen. This shows that they have passed all 3 exams necessary to become a fully qualified instructor.
Be careful if you may see a pink badge in the windscreen of a driving school car, Many other driving schools in the area have what they call ‘trainee’ instructors or PDI’s (Potential Driving Instructors).
These trainee instructors display a pink badge in their windscreen. The pink badge indicates that they have passed the first exam which is the theory test (containing 100 questions & the hazard perception test) and the second exam which is an hour long high standard driving test. These instructors HAVEN’T passed the 3rd exam which is the Instructional Ability test. In fact, some of these trainee instructors may have had very little, if any, training in instructional ability at all.
