Easy to Follow Step-by-Step Training

Our Driving Instructor Training Course consists of three parts and follows the National Standard for driver 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.

Having recently chosen to leave a large national driving school and being naturally sceptical of a new franchise, Howard, the founder of How 2 Drive, has more than delivered on his commitments. In advance of my start date I already had 7 new pupils, a thorough, professional induction, and with my existing pupils, my 1st week had an almost full diary. By my 2nd week it was more than full and I have added extra availability to accommodate!

How-2-Drive’s business model and franchise agreement are working and I’m looking forward to developing my skills as an ADI as part of the team. Howard clearly understands how to develop and grow his business and demonstrates excellent subject knowledge within the profession.


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 instructor training with How-2-Drive in 2015 when I decided to continue my training with a local Norwich company after having a disappointing experience with a national instructor training company.

I can honestly say from day one I received all the information and encouragement I had hoped for and over the next few months the training was fast paced and extensive and with Howard’s excellent people skills, he made me feel relaxed and confident. After passing all 3 parts of the ADI qualifying tests I decided to join How-2-Drive. I was made very welcome and was provided with everything I needed to start up. Within a week I had a full diary and am enjoying my new career.


Couldn’t be happier with the training I received from Howard. From day one, even before meeting when arranging my training Howard was friendly, understanding (having to arrange my training around a job and childcare) and professional! He has supported me every step of the way and provided me with top class training! I really couldn’t fault a single thing!

Lessons with Howard were fun, informative and tailored to my learning needs! Really can’t thank Howard enough for his support and I am now super excited to have passed my final test and to be joining his team in the new year!
