Apply To Be A Driving Instructor

Are you wondering how to apply to become a driving instructor? If so then you are in the right place - using a wealth of experience to guide you through the perfectly designed and structured course, we aim to make you into an ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) in just 6 to 12 months. You will utilise in car instructor training and grasp key knowledge online with manageable bite sized modules. Much of your ADI course will be through online training. There is a large volume of videos and specially developed visual training systems to get you through the circa 300 hours of learning required. This includes up to 76 bonus hours in car with a trainer.
We believe this is probably the simplest and yet most comprehensive way to train to become a driving instructor.

Clearly once you apply to be a driving instructor we understand a big worry for aspiring driving instructors is, `will there be enough work to make a decent living`? There is good news on this front: Find Your Instructor is a specialist in sourcing learner drivers seeking an ADI to get them on the road. Our modern lead generation methods and online directory are specifically geared to help driving instructors to gain new students. As part of your package you would gain a profile on our website so you can receive work directly through this and other forms of advertising that we provide.

Step By Step Guide To Driving Instructor Training

Step 1: Initial Application Criteria
To become ADI (an approved driving instructor) in the UK you must :
  • Have held a UK driving licence for at least 3 years
  • Have no more than 6 points on your driving licence
  • Be able to read a licence plate at 90 feet (27.5m) - use of contact lenses or glasses is fine

Becoming A Driving Instructor

Step 2: DBS Check (Disclosure and Barring Service)
You must allow the government to complete a DBS check in order to apply to be a driving instructor, you can request this for yourself and process online. The price of a DBS check is currently £25 and will be processed within 14 days but times can vary. Get in contact with a member of our team to help guide you through it and to check latest pricing.

Step 3: Training For The ADI Part 1 Test
Part one in your steps to train to become a driving instructor is the first of three tests in total. Part one is a theory test; there are two sections to this, a multiple-choice questionnaire and a hazard perception assessment.

This process of training to become a driving instructor is broken into easy to follow manageable sections to help you learn to build your knowledge of driving theory and the DVSA reference material. Expert support teams are available to provide you with first class support as you study for part one.

Step 4: Training For The ADI Part 2 Test
Part two of the three steps needed will be set up as once you have passed part one. It`s the second of the three tests and it`s a test of your driving ability. To pass this you must be able to show you can drive safely in different road and traffic conditions and show that you understand the highway code by the way that you drive and react to road signage.

The training is again broken down into easy to follow sections to help you study and understand what is required. Nothing is left to chance as this step-by-step approach using structured video tutorials and visual training systems created by experts to develop your knowledge. During this time the training team will provide ongoing tutor support, always ready to help you.

You can practice at times that suit you and you can repeat sections as often as you like. Once the online course is complete, one of the specialised trainers will assess your understanding and skill during up to 8 hours of bonus in-car training.

After you have passed the Part 2 test you can start to teach students on a `Potential Driving Instructor` (P.D.I.) licence for up to 6 months, whilst you train for the ADI part 3 test.

Step 5 : Training For The ADI Part 3 Test
The part three test when applying to become a driving instructor is the third and final test, it establishes your ability to teach learner drivers.

The training is broken into easy to follow bite-sized sections. Using video, structured private sessions, visual training systems and coaching exercises you will cover:
communication skills; route planning; pupil observation and assessment, basic coaching skills; the 17 competencies; fault indication and analysis; level of instruction; control of lesson; question and answer; feedback and encouragement and test preparation.
The training team provides proactive tutor support to help you pass.
(Mistakes can happen but don`t worry as in the unlikely event that you that you fail a test, further training is provided so you can go again up to 3 times in total).
