Are the ADI Test Fees Included?

Usually between 6 and 8 months on average. To help you pass your ADI exams sooner we can tailor your training programme to suit your individual needs.  Suitable candidates may fast track their training and start earning as they learn on our Trainee Licence.  Candidates can start this once they have passed Part 2 and completed the Part 3 course.

If you decide to take this course and show hard work and determination then Howard will do everything in his power to help you succeed too!

Where Will My Training Take Place?

ADI Trainee Reviews

5/5

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!

5/5

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.

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.

5/5

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.
