Driving Instructor training courses can be arranged in two ways:
This method of ADI training is ideal for people who wish to train to be an ADI at convenient times around their current jobs.
ADI training is usually arranged in two-hour sessions over a period of weeks.
Please note that this training is on a one to one ratio and the amount of ADI training is determined by how quickly you reach the required standard. Most people that we train take between 30 to 50 hours of practical training to become a driving instructor. This equates to approximate ADI training fees of around £1050 to £1750 depending on how quickly you can learn the necessary skills.
Again this is based on the hourly rate of £35 per hour
This course is ideally structured for people who wish to train to be a driving instructor over a lot quicker period and therefore will be able to apply for earlier exam dates. The full ADI training course can be spread over two separate weeks. It is however possible to be shortened or varied for people who are already partly trained.
** Please note that two week intensive courses are not always available dependent on waiting periods for exams.
