John Farlam


John became a Driving Instructor over 35 years ago having ‘tried’ a number of potential careers. He had no real desire to become a Driving Instructor but quickly fell in love with the job and the industry.

With little ‘formal education’, John built and ran numerous multi car Driving Schools across the UK.

John became Training Director of Learner Driver Centres (LDC) and helped numerous Driving Instructor Training Companies develop their Driving Instructor Training courses as well as many individuals to realise their dreams and become a driving instructor.

John has since gone on to be seen as one of the Industry’s leading experts.




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.
