Driving Instructor Training

Dr1veschool is pleased to offer driving instructor training to people who would like to become a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor.

Please give us a call on  0116 319 5608 or 07506 132742 or complete our contact form for more information.

There are many organisations and driving schools that offer driving instructor training but we want you to know that with Dr1veschool we will offer you high quality training at a reasonable price. We want you to not only pass your ADI exams but also to stay with us as a driving instructor. So we have a vested interest in ensuring that we give you a high standard of training. We will help you with all three parts of the ADI qualification process.

In order to meet the highest standards of training, Dr1veschool is Ordit registered (Official Register of Driving Instructor Training).

ordit

ORDIT registration ensures:

  • members provide good quality training by qualified trainers from premises that are inspected and meet satisfactory standards
  • registered training establishment members all agree to abide by the terms and conditions of ORDIT

You can see from the Gov UK website that any ORDIT member has to reach high standards in a number of areas relating to the training offered.

Whoever you decide to take your training with, the most important thing is that the driving school is ORDIT registered, ask yourself can any driving school offering driving instructor training be serious if they are not ORDIT registered?.  Being on the ORDIT register means being subject to regular inspections from the DVSA, having all your documents, training material, complaints policy etc inspected.  All trainers must also pass a in car practical training session to ensure the teaching training provided is up to the DVSA standard.

The Course:

A Written (Part 1), Driving (Part 2) and then Teaching (Part 3) exams are what you need to pass to qualify as a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor. These exams are not hard, as long as you have the right trainer.

All exams have to be taken in series – so you have to take and pass the Part 1 before taking the Part 2 etc. You will only have 3 attempts at both the part 2 and part 3, failing for a 3rd time in either part 2 or 3 will mean you have to wait 2 years before you may start again.

We encourage students to start the in-car driving and pupil teaching training as soon as you start on the course so we can get you through your Part 1 and 2 exams within 12-16 weeks

Having passed your Part 2 we can start you in work under a “Trainee licence” after 40 hours of Part 3 training.

Course Outline:
  • Training for the Part 1 Written multiple choice exam includes Home study + weekly in car sessions
  • Training for the Part 2 Driving exam is “in car” practical driving lessons from one of our ORDIT registered trainers.
  • Training for the Part 3 Teaching exam is a combination of theory and practical “in-car” teaching sessions – normally we would start you off on the in car sessions when you start your Part 1 training.
  • Induction training takes place when you have passed your Driving Exam to prepare you to start work under a Trainees licence
  • When you start up under a Trainee Licence we give you further weekly “in car” training, for as long as you need to pass your Part 3 Teaching exam

Effectively we will give you all the training you need to get you through the qualification process – as we cannot afford for you to fail. Your success is our success!

The big question, How much will i earn?

Being a driving instructor is just like running your own business, how much you earn will entirely depend on how much you work,  and also how good you are.  Most of us work approx 50 hours a week if you count commuting time,  if you were to work just 30 hours lesson time a week, at £25 per hour that’s £750, minus your expenses of around £150 a week, so that’s still a good income. If you want genuine advice and would like to know what its really like to be a driving instructor then call us anytime.
