What sort of people become driving instructors?
People who like the idea of being their own boss and having control over their income and working hours.
People who want a career, not just a job.
People who don’t want to be tied to a desk all day long.
People with a natural desire to help others – It’s extremely rewarding meeting someone with absolutely no driving experience and then watching them grow in confidence and ability as you help them develop the skills that they need for a lifetime of safe driving and pass their driving test.
GET THE WORK/LIFE BALANCE THAT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY DESERVE!
No previous experience is needed – It doesn’t matter what you’ve done before. Many driving instructors are women returning into work after bringing up the kids, people wanting a career change, or have maybe been made redundant.

The qualifying tests.
This is the first test that you will need to take and includes a theory and hazard perception test.
From the day you take this first test, it starts the clock for your 2 year qualification period.
Because we use the very best training package on the market, all of the tools you need are provided for you,
Including free access to theory test pro, where you can start practising straight away!
Also integrated into part one are some great study tips to help you learn and retain any new information.
As an experienced driver, this sounds simple enough but passing this exam requires you to be able to demonstrate that
you have enough knowledge to answer pupil questions during lessons.
Once you are consistently passing mock tests and you feel confident with the hazard perception test,you can take the exam. Cost is £81.
This is a test of your driving ability where you will be expected to demonstrate a very high standard.
The test will take approximately 1 hour and cover the following.
An eyesight check.
5 show me, tell me, vehicle safety questions.
General driving ability on all types of roads including motorways.
20 minutes independent driving.
With our training package, you will be more than prepared for this test as it’s not just an advanced driving test
but assesses your ability to give a demonstration drive to future pupils that sets a good example.
During your part 2 training you will develop a wide variety of skills that will bring your driving up to the
required standards for this test.
Your trainer will ensure that you are of the standard required before your test. Cost is £111.
This is the final stage in your qualifying process.
You will need to teach according to the 17 competencies which were
written to fall in line with the
National Standards for Driver and Rider Training.
Your trainer will be there to support you so that you feel confident in your ability to teach safely
before you go on your trainee licence ( Highly recommended.)
If you decide you don’t want to go on a trainee licence, you can still teach friends and family but you will not be able to charge money for this.
Once you are ready you will take your test. During the test you will be expected to conduct a lesson with a pupil, which is observed by an examiner,
who sits in the back.
You will feel well prepared for this as you will be used to your trainer being there during your training and observations. Cost is £111.
From the date you pass part 1, you then have a maximum of 2 years to complete parts 2 and 3.
Once you have passed part 1 and 2 and have completed 40 hours of instructor training, you will be able to apply for your trainee licence which means you can charge for lessons. The purpose of this licence is to enable you to gain experience with real pupils and earn while you learn. Full support is given during this time as it’s compulsory to have an extra 20 hours training (minimum of 5 in car) including your trainer sitting in on your lessons.
