Training to become a driving instructor

Becoming a driving instructor means developing your existing capacities and learning new skills and competencies. And if you're a good communicator who enjoys helping others, you definitely have the potential to become a great instructor.

Being a self employed driving instructor.

The word self-employed might bring a certain amount of concern for those of you who are and have always been employed. It's the fear of doing everything for yourself, and the worry that something could go wrong:

And then there's those questions running through your head, like:

  • How do I actually get started, what do Ineed to do?
  • What if I can't get any customers, who's going to pay the bills?
  • What if people don't like me, why would they trust me?
  • How am I going to compete with all the other instructors, there's so many of them?
  • I've never had to advertise before, what do i say and where should I advertise?

When you start your new career it can seem a little overwhelming which is we'll help you from day one. When you join our driving school, our experienced staff will handle your marketing, find you new customers, keep your diary full from week to week, and help you with the organisation and administration of work involved in being a self-employed driving instructor, so you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself. 

 

For most people becoming self-employed is like starting a job for life. They know they'll never be made redundant, or have to compete to keep their position in the company again.

They are the captain of their own ship, and they don't take orders from anyone else, their destiny is in their own hands. 

 

 As a driving instructor working with Elite you can expect

  • Job Security - knowing that you are in control and with the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have a job for life 
  • Flexible working hours - so you can pick and choose your own routine, and make better use of your time to enjoy your life
  • A good Income - because you want the chance to earn what you deserve so you can control your finances, and plan ahead
  • Reward for your efforts - If job satisfaction is on your list, it doesn't get much better than helping others achieve their dreams, and share in their excitement

 

Here's a few interesting facts about the driver training industry:

With a growing population and more & more people learning to drive it's a great time to become a driving instructor.

In 2016 more than 1.7 million driving tests were conducted in the UK, which is more than in any of the previous 7 years.

The increased desire for driving lessons has led to people having to wait months before they can start their lessons, and that's the same in most cities across the UK.

The DVSA (Driving Vehicle Standards Agency) has recorded a 16% drop in driving instructors on the register since 2012, and there were 40% less new instructors joining the register in 2017 than in 2012.

So, unlike most professions that are bursting at the seams with new recruits scrapping for crumbs, there's more demand for driving lessons than there are instructors available to give them.

 

We're helping people every day; here's two of our instructors who went through our training course before starting their new career as Elite franchise instructors:

Tim Richards

Being a driving instructor is a career I have considered a few times over the years. I have contacted some of the larger nationwide driving schools to enquire about their training programmes but have always felt like it's just about sales for them and the initial phone call is usually followed up by text messages and emails hounding you to join up before you miss out on the latest special offer they have.

A few months ago I did some research in to local driving schools in the Hull area and found Elite. I saw that they were getting positive feedback from their customers and that they were looking for new instructors so I decided to give them a call. I ended up popping in to the office that same day and having a discussion about my suitability for the job, what the costs and potential earnings would be and what training I would have to undertake.

I left feeling like I knew every I needed to know to make a well informed decision and after sleeping on it I told them I would like to go ahead. Elite provided me with an excellent package of training resources and assigned an Instructor Trainer to me. Under my Instructors expert guidance, I have passed my part 1, 2 and 3 tests and am now working full time as a qualified ADI.

Elite have always given me great support, there's always someone at the end of the phone if I need help or advice and I'm loving the flexibility of my new career and the satisfaction of helping pupils to gain a new life skill.

Richard Kingdom

Hi, my name is Richard kingdom and I am a qualified ADI contracted to the Elite Driving School franchise in Hull.

I chose Elite Driving School, after comparing many others, due to their more personal and professional approach. I wasn’t wrong in my choice as they certainly lived up to their dedication to my progression and also friendly (almost homely) nature. The support is fantastic.

I first thought of becoming a driving instructor many years ago as I enjoy teaching people new skills. After many years in the manufacturing sector, I finally got the opportunity to train for and achieve this qualification. I must admit that it was more of a challenge than I was expecting.

The rewards have been worth the effort. I am now the master of my own destiny and for the first time in my career, I am in control. I meet new people every day and have a fresh challenge every hour.

There is nothing nicer than helping people achieve something they dream of doing and being able to enjoy it along the way. That sort of satisfaction is priceless.

Taking up this profession is something I should have done a long time ago, so my advice to anyone thinking about it is: Do it whist you have the opportunity. You won’t regret it!

Driving instructor training

 

Commonly asked questions:

How long does it take to train to become a driving instructor?

That depends on whether you're a busy mum or dad, or you've plenty of time to throw at training. 

If you choose us as your training provider, we'll arrange a training program the way you want it, which means you can:

  • Learn at a steady pace: Some people prefer to take their time when learning something new, or their life commitments restrict the time they have available to learn.
  • Learn quickly: For some people the quicker the better, but every process has some hurdles, and you can sometimes be held up waiting for DVSA exams. You must take each test in sequence, which means you must pass the part one exam before you can book the part two exam, and pass part two before booking part three. 
  • Fast Track: Ambitious people often want to learn intensively over a few weeks, which is do-able, but this style of learning only benefits a small group of individuals, especially those who have a photographic memory and like the pressure of intensive learning. Getting short notice tests with the DVSA can be a problem, but we chase cancellations on a daily basis. 

  

 

Are all driving instructors self-employed?

Yes the vast majority of driving instructors are self-employed, I would think that the figures are over 90%. 

 

I've heard that you can learn to become a driving instructor in just one week, is that true?

There's no shortage of adverts for intensive one week courses for teaching instructors. But, in reality you'll have to put a lot of distance learning in before you'll be able to sit an intensive.

Some companies quote upto 300 hours of home study before you start their intensive training course. Even if you allocated 2 hrs a day to home study, it would still take you over 22 weeks before your ready for an intensive. 

I prefer a hands on experience personally, where you can combine home study with practical training, for me the results are much better.

 

The training schedule

Before you embark on your training, first, you'll need to apply for a DBS check (criminal record check) which can take a couple of weeks. then you can register with the DVSA to start your training.

The first test of the qualifying process is the part one theory which involves a lot of reading & research. Most people take a minimum of 4 weeks to study for the part one before taking the test.

Next is the part two practical which can be taught in a few days, or weeks if working around your other commitments. 

The final module is the part three test of instructional ability, and requires a minimum of 40 hours plus hands on training with a qualified trainer. You should allow a few of months to complete the part three training before taking the qualifying exam. 

You can find out everything you need to know about the three DVSA exams here  

 

 

You've got this far and so I presume you are still interested. Which is why I would recommend you speak to our experienced driving instructor trainers, not a salesman who's only interested is selling you on a course. Some schools pay their recruiters a wage of £42,000 a year! 

Of course, we can send you a brochure instead. But if you want to know the facts, then there's nothing better than a face to face meeting to get knowledge you'll need to make a educated decision.

Plus, we will also be happy to offer you our unique 2 hour driving instructor introduction for just £17, usually £72.

 

The induction lasts about 2 hours plus. It's designed to give you a overview of the training course, the career, and your prospects beyond, but more importantly you'll get to meet the people you'll be spending a lot of time with in the training vehicle.
