Motorists should be told if they are being taught by a trainee driving instructor says AA

A large majority of drivers who took part in the survey believed that they should be told by the driving school if their instructor is a trainee. By law a trainee instructor only needs to display a pink badge on their car windscreen and can start give lessons after passing the advanced practical and theory tests. The instructor can do the instruction exam later on. It is good to know that the past rate in only 30 per cent, therefore instructors could teach driving pupils before they become a fully qualified driving instructor.
