All driving instructors are required to register. To obtain an instructor's certificate, you are required to undergo a criminal record check, obtain a medical certificate and pass an instructor's test. The instructor certificate must be renewed on a yearly basis.


To apply for an instructor's certificate, you need to complete form R1 at a driving licence testing centre.

The application must state which class(es) of motor vehicles you wish to register as an instructor for and must be accompanied by the appropriate fee.

If the application is accepted, you are required to take a test (practical and theory) at the driving licence testing centre to get a report on your competency to act as an instructor. Two I.D photographs are also required.

If you are successful, you will be issued with a registration certificate.
