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.

Is it Easy to Become A Driving Instructor?

No — you’ll need to be dedicated and driven to pass your ADI Qualifying Tests. Just like with anything else in life, if its worth having, you’ll have to work hard for it. If you have the determination, Howard will be there to help you every step of the way!

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!

ADI Trainee Reviews

5/5

Having spent the last year training (alongside work commitments) to be an ADI with Howard of How-2-Drive, I can honestly say that it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. The tuition was first class and made easy to understand by Howard. I am now looking forward to my new career.

5/5

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.

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 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!
