Driving instructor training by Cambridge Intensive Driving
If being your own boss and working the days and hours that suit you, then being a driving instructor may be for you. This, as well as meeting and training a wide range of people and an attractive salary are just a few of the benefits that comes with being a driving instructor.
Where do I start?
The requirements outlaid by the DSA to start driving instructor training are that you should of held a full UK driving licence for no less than three and a half years and to have no more than 5 penalty points on your licence. A criminal record check will need to be made. You can then apply for the ADI Starter Pack by the DSA. This can be applied for by calling the DSA with your credit or debit card on 0870 121 4202. The current price for the starter pack is £5.00. Once you have received your pack, form ADI 3 will entitle you to apply to be entered onto the DSA register of driving instructors. Once you have been entered, you can start the training process.
What does the training involve?
There are three qualifying exams that need to be taken in order. These are Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. Part 1 is similar to the learner drivers theory and hazard perception test. Part 2 is similar to the learner driver practical test and Part 3 is to test your ability to teach.
Cambridge Intensive Driving offer training on a one-to-one basis by highly experienced instructor trainers. You will also be assigned the same trainer throughout the duration of your course. The courses we provide can be taken either intensively or on a part-time basis to fit around your current commitments.
Course fees are highly competitive and can be paid either on a pay-as-you-go system or payment can be made up front. Discounts apply for complete course payment.
Once Part 1 and Part 2 have been completed along with 40 hours of Part 3, a trainee driving instructor licence can be applied for. Once received, you will be able to work full or part-time as a driving instructor for pay. If you intend to take a trainee licence, you will be offered a position at one of our driving schools. A diary of pupils will be provided as well as help and advice outside of training hours.
