There are 4 Steps to Become a Driving Instructor.

Below, we take a look at the 4 steps.

Step 1 - Why do you want to be a Driving Instructor?

Before you start, you MUST ask yourself the question:

“Why do I want to be a Driving Instructor?”

Some of you will already know why; to run your own business or work more flexibly. To earn more or be more secure.

If you are not sure yet, but like the idea and would like to learn more, take a look around this site and we will try to answer all of your questions and tell you all about this industry and the Job.

The training and tests are not hard and most people actually enjoy it, but you will need to work hard.

Step 2 - Legal Process

This is in 3 steps and can be done as you study:

  1. Check list
  2. Criminal Records Bureau check
  3. DVSA registration

Step 3 - DVSA Tests

The DVSA ADI Examination process to become a Driving Instructor is in 3 parts:

  1. Theory and Hazard Perception
  2. Driving Ability
  3. Instructional Ability

Step 4 - Training for the Tests

There are lots of companies out there that can train you to become a Driving Instructor.

But all companies such as RED, BSM, The AA, LDC etc.. must all cover certain subjects to prepare you for the DVSA ADI Examination process.

Here, we will look into the syllabus for each part of the training.

The Training course for the ADI certificate has been very well developed and delivered. All aspects of the course are developmental and put into practice as you progress. Manageable timelines and targets are set, this allowed me to be organised and set time aside to complete the work to the timelines. All this while working at the same time. The support is outstanding and available as and when required, by email or phone. The strange and unexpected experience to arise is that I feel that while completing the online and live driving course, all of the staff I have been involved with within the course delivery have made me feel as though I was an important part of the team. In short, outstanding course materials, delivery, online support, face to face support and very professional staff.
