How do I become a Driving Instructor?

Updated – How do I become a driving Instructor and benefits of joining SAIDI

SAIDI constantly receives calls from members of the public who would like to become driving instructors. The document above gives the present guidelines, however:

Legislation for driving instructors is presently incorrectly applied, since driving instructors are issued with instructor’s certificates by Provincial authorities only, which is unconstitutional, since both National and Provincial Departments of Transport are required to legislate all road traffic legislation concurrently.

At present, Provincial authorities issues driving instructor’s certificates to those who have complied with the requirements as prescribed  So no constitutionally correct laws for driving instructors are presently in effect.

We have written to the Honourable Minister of Transport, Dipuo Peters, to ask for a meeting with her, in order to try to correct the present situation and will keep you informed of any changes in legislation.

There are no laws for driving schools which have been proclaimed. The Draft Bills issued previously were found to be unconstitutional and even absurd and dangerous in some respects.
