DVSA ORDIT Trainer

Working as an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) is a very rewarding career. Not only will you be your own boss who decides when or how often you work, but you’ll also get a great amount of job satisfaction. Imagine how fulfilling it is to take a pupil all the way from their first driving lesson through to passing their driving test.

Over the past 10 years I have helped many people just like you to realise their dream of becoming a fully qualified ADI. Now’s your chance to let me do the same for you!

By training to become a driving instructor with me, this is what you can expect:

Local one-to-one ADI training services

You’ll get 40 hours of one-to-one in-car driving instructor training PLUS unlimited access to our online training classes. All in-car training is delivered locally in Norwich.

Online study materials included

Included in your ADI training course are over 30 hours of online study materials. You’ll have full access to all of our SKILLS and SUBJECTS video tutorials. These tutorials come with their own workbook for you to complete as you progress through each lesson.

Your online training will prepare you to put these new skills into action with your private instructor trainer.

Grade A / ORDIT trainers

Our trainers have achieved the highest Grade A awarded by the DVSA. They have all gone on to pass the instructor trainers exams with flying results.

Earn as you learn with the PDI trainee licence

You can choose to fast-track your training by applying for a trainee licence so you can earn while you learn. The trainee licence is issued by the DVSA and gives you the legal status as a Potential Driving Instructor (PDI). You will then be able to join our school of motoring and get paid to teach our pupils.

As a PDI, you will be able to work either full or part-time during this 6 month period, during which we will continue to train and support you. This is a great way to gain valuable work experience whilst you prepare for your final Part 3 ADI exam.

What’s included in your ADI training course?

  • 40 hours of one-to-one training in-car with your very own dedicated ORDIT trainer.
  • Access to the our online study materials (over 30 hours of tuition).
  • Access to the SKILLS and SUBJECTS course workbooks.
  • All the essential books.
  • Your own reflective logbook to record notes on your progress.
  • Theory Test Pro software for theory and hazard perception for driving instructors.
  • Our Driving Instructor Training Course Guide, which will walk you through your course step by step.

Flexible training plans

Your driving instructor training course will consist of three parts:

  • Part 1 – Theory (2 hours)
  • Part 2 – Driving (8 hours)
  • Part 3 – Teaching (30 hours in-car training PLUS access to our online study material)

We’ll take you through each part step by step. Each part will build upon your existing knowledge and prepare you to pass your ADI exams. We’ll explain everything to you and show you how to apply each new skill. You’ll then be given time to practice and develop your instructional techniques in preparation for your tests.

You can fit your training around your current work or family commitments. Most of our students commit to either a 2 hour or a 4 hour training session each week. Your training will take around 4 to 6 months to complete. After this point you can choose to gain paid experience with your trainee licence before you go on to take your final exam.

Flexible payment plans

  1. Buy all three parts of the course up front for just £1999, giving you a saving of £389!

ADI training FAQs

Do You Offer Discounts?

Yes — if you Buy Now for £1999 you’ll save £389 off the Monthly Payment Plan which is £2388.

How Long Will it Take to Get My Qualification?

Usually between 4 and 6 months.
