ADI Testimonials

5/5

I started training to become a driving instructor in June 2016 after meeting Howard, who talked me through the process of the training and the opportunity to work for his franchise once qualified. I passed all 3 tests first time and qualified as an ADI in November 2016.

Howard supported me through every stage, supplying me with the knowledge and resources needed to succeed! The process to become an ADI can seem daunting, to begin with, you will need to be dedicated to succeed. Determination and hard work along with Howard’s teaching technique will make the process a lot simpler and enjoyable.

Six months on from starting the training, I have the great opportunity to work under the How 2 Drive colours, with my diary being filled with pupils and the flexibility of working when and where I wish.
