Easy to Follow Step-by-Step Training

  • Part 1 – Theory
  • Part 2 – Driving
  • Part 3 – Teaching

We’ll take you through each part step-by-step, building on your knowledge so you can pass your ADI exams. We’ll explain everything to you and show you how to apply your new skills.  Then we’ll allow you time to practice and develop your instructional techniques.

We will teach you how to deliver high-quality client centred lessons and how to use your coaching skills to get the best from your learner.  We’ll introduce some common driving mistakes and teach you how to fix them.

You’ll start by teaching your trainer who will play the role of a learner so you can learn is a safe but realistic environment.  Once you’re feeling more confident you’ll have the opportunity to train real people with real learning needs to complete your training. Soon you’ll be ready to pass on your skills, knowledge and understanding to develop safe responsible drivers for life.

Once you qualify with us you’ll be a professional driving instructor ready to start work and earn a good living.

I have just passed my Part Three ADI test having received instruction from Howard. I found Howard’s style and manner of training very professional and relaxed, he is very knowledgeable and clearly knows how to get this knowledge across in an understandable and timely fashion.

The course was well planned and structured and the learning and instructional material was very informative and useful which was invaluable on the actual test day. The pace and regularity of the lessons was well tailored to suit my needs and fitted in well around my normal day job.

I would thoroughly recommend Howard to anyone thinking of becoming a future Driving Instructor!


I am now a driving instructor! I’ve just passed my final exam with Howard and How-2-Drive. I can’t believe I have actually done it! This is all possible thanks to Howard and his excellent training style. When I found things difficult, he just took a different approach and made it all sound so simple.

Thanks to Howard’s calm approach and endless patience, not to mention his training course — I managed to pass all three parts first time!


I started training to be a driving instructor in June 2016 with another driving school. I passed my Part 1 and 2 tests, but stopped after that due to family commitments.

Six months later, I decided to restart my training and came across How 2 Drive. Howard’s approach is fun and relaxed, but detailed and client centred. His ongoing support is second to none. After my initial training I began teaching under a trainee licence. This enabled me to go out and teach pupils so that I could gain vital experience before taking the final Part 3 test.

Howard and Sam Floyd have been so supportive. They have helped me to move from a boring mundane job into a challenging but rewarding career.


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.
