Please note: You may only take 3 attempts at this test, if you were to fail 3 times then you would need to wait till 2 years from the date which you passed your driving instructor theory test at which time you would be able to start the qualification process again. With this in mind it is important to ensure that you take the right training to ensure that you are at the correct standard before taking the test.
