The aims of our DSA Instructor Course are to convert the trainees knowledge and skills of the relevant category C and C+E up to the required standard in order to pass the Driving Standards Agency LGV voluntary register for LGV Instructors.
This DSA Instructor Course test is more advanced than the normal LGV driving test and a very high standard of competence is required. It consists of a test of the candidate’s driving technique and will last for approximately 1 ½ hours and will include all the elements of the practical LGV test. Candidates must show that they have a thorough knowledge of the principles of good driving and road safety and that they can apply them in practice. Candidates will pass the Driving Ability test if they commit six or fewer driving faults recorded as (/) on the marking sheet and will fail if they commit a serious fault (S), a dangerous fault (D) or seven or more driving faults.
This part of the DSA Instructor Course will cover the following:
The object of this test is to assess the candidate’s ability to give driving instruction to a pupil. To do this, the examiner will adopt the role of a pupil who is learning to drive a Large Goods Vehicle (Cat C or C+E) or a pupil wanting remedial tuition having failed an LGV test. (All DSA tests are conducted by supervising examiners and are pass / fail. The maximum attempts on tests are three at each part after which there will be no further attempts until a 12 month period has elapsed.)
The DSA Instructor Course examinations will be booked in advance and in line with the availability of the Senior Examiner. Once the examination dates have been confirmed the course will be delivered in accordance with the dates.
