Driving Instructor Training

Commonly asked questions about training

You need to be aged 21+

Have held a full driving licence for at least 3 years

You must not have been banned (disqualified) from driving in the last 4 years

Any driving bans, more than 5 points on your licence or other criminal convictions can affect your application.

You must undergo a full DBS before you will be allowed on the registar of approved driving instructors.

There are 3 exams in order to qualify as an Approved Driving Instructor.

Part 1. Theory test - Unlimited attempts

Part 2. Driving ability - 3 attempts   

Part 3. Instructional ability - 3 attempts 

The time it takes for you to qualify will vary depending on several things, your own availability, the availability of our ADI Trainers and of course the Qualifiying exams.

In total we expect most people to require around 70 hours of 1-2-1 training with one of our ADI Trainers

This usually takes anything from 3 - 9 months but you have up to 2 years from passing the Part 1 to complete the training.

If you are going for one of our training package then you will be using the Go Green Driving Instructor Training training books and online training videos created by Lou and Blaine Walsh and these are included in the price of our training packages.

Once you have passed your Part 2 Driving Ability exam and you have completed 40 hours of Part 3 training with an ADI you will be allowed to apply for a Trainee Driving Instructor Licence. 

The Trainee Driving Instructor Licence allows you to gain experience of teaching real pupils and being paid to cover your costs.

You do not need to go down this route and you can go directly to the Part 3 exam if you wish to do so. The Trainee Licence should also not be seen as a way to earn a living and be treated as a way to train real pupils and gain experience.

To be on a Trainee Licence you will also need to sponsorship of a qualified ADI - We can help you with this.

The Trainee Licence is £140 and last for 6 months or until you have taken all 3 attempts at the Part 3 exam

You will also be required to complete and additional 20 hours of training before taking your Part 3

As a PDI you can start delivering driving lessons and be paid for your time and expenses once you have passed the Part 2 exam and completed a minimum of 40 hours of training with an ADI.

You will also require a Pink Badge, (Trainee Licence)

Part 1 Theory test £81
