A Cautionary Tale...

  • As many as 90% of those who pay £1000's in fees for driving instructor training never qualify.
  • Not all newspaper and TV job opportunities for driving instructors are what they might at first appear to be. When you go to see a company they are NOT offering you a job, no matter how they 'dress it up' - they are  selling you a training course.
  • It is possible to earn £30,000 plus per year as a driving instructor
  • Some companies have restrictive refund policies or tie you in to franchise contracts that will leave you earning less than the minimum wage or working excessively long hours to make ends meet.
  • Just because a company is ORDIT Registered there is no guarantee that you will receive good quality ADI training to help you to become a driving instructor.
  • Many of those who do qualify, leave the industry again within four years

Doing some research now won't cost you a penny and may save you  £1000's. However, not everything about becoming an ADI is negative and with a little help from the right training provider, it is possible to embark upon a long and rewarding new career.

With the prospect of being your own boss, choosing your own working  hours and doing something that you will enjoy, the chances are that you are quite excited about the prospects and opportunities before you. And so you should be ...

You may be planning to be a driving instructor for years to come, maybe until you retire; with this in mind, it's a good idea to fully understand the qualifying process, what working as an instructor will entail and what you might hope to earn.
