Becoming an Approved Driving Instructor or ADI is a very rewarding career. Not only will you be your own boss deciding when or how much you want to work, but you’ll get a great amount of job satisfaction taking a pupil from their first driving lesson to passing the 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, 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

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

Full Online Study Materials

Included in your Driving Instructor Training Course is over 40 hours of home study with the Go Green Online Training Course. You’ll have access to training videos and workbook modules to help you gain the knowledge and understanding ready to practice your new skills when you get in-car with your personal trainer.

Grade A / ORDIT Trainers

Our trainers have achieved the highest Grade A awarded by the DVSA and have gone on to pass the Instructor Trainers exams with flying results.

Live Virtual Training Classes

Learn by joining our Live Virtual Training Classes from the comfort of your own home via Zoom.

Our regular live virtual training classrooms are held most Wednesday evenings where you can learn and meet other students who are going through the same journey as you. This is a great way to meet like-minded people and buddy up with one another.

Earn as you learn with the 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) to join our school and teach our pupils for reward. We will of course continue to train and support you during this 6 month period. This is a great way to gain valuable work experience whilst you prepare for your final Part 3 Instructor exam.

Once you’ve passed your Part 2 test and have completed your Part 3 training, you can apply for a Trainee Licence which lasts for 6 months to allow you time to gain experience. You can either do this full or part-time.

What’s included in your ADI Training course?

  • 40 hours of one-to-one training in-car with your very own ORDIT trainer.
  • Access to the Go Green Online Driving Instructor Training Course, included in the price
  • Access to our Live Virtual Training Classes
  • Printed Training Workbook Modules
  • All the essential books
  • Reflective logbook
  • Theory Test Pro for Theory and Hazard perception for driving instructors.
  • Copy of our Driving Instructor Training Course Guide to walk you through the 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 PLUS access to our Virtual Classes)

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 in your training around your current work or family commitments. Most of our students take either a 2 hour or a 4 hour training session each week. The training will take around 4 to 6 months to complete after which point you can choose to gain experience with the Trainee Licence before taking the final exam.
