ADI Training FAQs

Are All Training Materials Included?

Yes — everything needed to support your learning is included. You’ll get all the ADI Training Modules, essential reading list, online Theory package, Tuition Presenter as well as 52 hours of one-to-one in-car training with Howard.

Are the ADI Test Fees Included?

No — sorry ADI Qualifying Test Fees are payable to the DVSA when you book your tests. It was almost all too good to be true!

Do You Offer Discounts?

Yes — if you buy all three parts of the ADI training course up front you’ll save £500 off the cost of paying for them individually.

How Long Will it Take to Get My Qualification?

Usually between four to eight months on average. To help you pass your ADI exams sooner we can tailor your training programme to suit your individual needs.

How Soon Can I Start?

This is subject to availability as Howard is the only driving instructor trainer at How-2-Drive. No-one else will be asked to train you, so you’ll only be trained by the very best ORDIT trainer. Give us a call so we can discuss your availability and agree a plan to suit you.

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!

What’s Your Pass Rate Like?

Over the past seven years Howard has helped many people to qualify as driving instructors. Over half of his students pass on their first attempt, the rest pass on the second. Only three people have had to take their third and final attempt — and only one of those failed.

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?

Your training will be conducted in a training vehicle, taking in all the actual test areas in Norwich. This local experience will give you an extra advantage when it comes to taking your ADI tests!

Who Will Deliver My Training?

Howard will deliver your training personally. He’s on the Official Register of Driving Instructor Trainers (ORDIT) and has seven years experience helping people just like you to become fully qualified driving instructors.

Will I Be Able to Get Work Once I’m Qualified?

Yes, you will! We have a great driving school franchise package for you – either full or part-time. We’ll fill your diary with all the new pupils you need.

Will My Training Be Delivered on a One-to-One Basis?

Yes — all your training will be delivered at a pace that suits you. You’ll never have to share your sessions with anyone else!

ADI Trainee Reviews

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

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

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!

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!
