WHAT IS A DRIVING INSTRUCTOR?
A "driving instructor" is an employee of a driving school that provides driving instruction for compensation. CVC Section 310.4 .
A background investigation is conducted on all applicants. Failure to disclose convictions or providing incorrect information requested on the application may result in the refusal or denial of your license. The department may refuse to issue a license to any applicant who has been convicted of a crime or committed any act or engaged in any conduct involving moral turpitude which is substantially related to the qualifications or duties of the licensed activity. A conviction based on plea of nolo contendere is a conviction within the meaning of this section. CVC Section 11107 , 11110.1 , 11110.2 , 11110.5 , and 11110.7 . Persons previously working under a license issued by DMV, which was revoked or suspended for cause may also be denied a license. In addition, the California Code of Regulations (CCR) and other sections of the California Vehicle Code provides guidelines used by the department in determining whether a license should be issued. CCR , Title 13, Chapter 1.
