It’s illegal for someone to charge for driving lessons if they are not qualified and registered - you can report them to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
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 DVSA.
