Beware of Fake Driving Instructors

Report an illegal driving instructor

It’s illegal for someone to charge for driving lessons if they aren’t qualified and registered – you can report them to the Driving Standards Agency (DSA).

The only people who can charge a fee to give driving lessons are:

  • approved driving instructors – they must display a green badge in their windscreen
  • trainee driving instructors with a licence – they must display a pink badge in their windscreen

To report someone who you think is an illegal driving instructor, email or phone the DSA.
