Driving Instructors teach people the theoretical and practical aspects of driving motor vehicles.
Theoretical training comprises lectures and demonstrations on how to handle a vehicle in an emergency, driving techniques and the mechanical operation of motor vehicles. Instructors may use blackboard diagrams, audio-visual aids and driving simulators to accomplish this task.
Practical training involves the learner driver actually starting the car, driving and parking - first in the driving-school grounds and then out on the public road - while the instructor observes the learner’s driving habits and reactions under various conditions.
Driving instructors encourage improvement of the learner driver’s technique until a satisfactory level of competence has been attained and the learner is able to attempt to pass a test and acquire a driver’s licence.
