What’s required to become a Driving Instructor?

Becoming a driving instructor is a great career choice. You’re always on the move, meeting new people and empowering them to learn how to drive. Training to become a driving instructor for NxtGen Driving Academy is not an overnight process. This can be a benefit to some potential instructors, with the ability to complete the training with 4-6 weeks once the application process has been completed or longer, depending on your lifestyle and existing work commitments.

Before you begin, we must insist on a compulsory DBS check first, which is a requirement by the DVSA. Once this has been returned to you and there are no implications that prevent you from becoming an approved driving instructor (ADI), you can submit a driving instructor application form to the DVSA.

How does ADI Network’s instructor training work?

The ADI training is conducted in three stages:

Part 1
Part 1 is theory-based. Trainees must answer 100 driving theory questions and answer at least 85 correctly to pass to Part 2. All training materials and theory books are provided to give you the best possible chance of passing with flying colours.

Part 2
Part 2 is practical-based. You will be required to take – and pass – your driving test again. You must drive for 60 minutes and receive less than six minor faults. To pass this stage you will also need to cover 20 hours of driving tuition before taking your test, ensuring you drive to the highest possible standard.

Part 3
Part 3 is teaching-based. You will be able to start teaching learner drivers on a PDI Training Licence once you have completed a minimum of 40 hours of Part 3 training. The PDI Training Licence lasts for six months and a further 20 hours will need to be completed prior to taking your Part 3 test.

This will give you the opportunity to earn and learn at the same time, whilst developing the skills necessary to complete the Part 3 test within six months of your PDI Training Licence. The Part 3 test lasts for one hour and requires you to take a pupil with you so a DVSA Examiner can inspect your level of tuition.

How much does it cost to train to become an approved driving instructor?

The cost of training to become a driving instructor includes your first attempt at Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 tests. Training can be paid for on a part-by-part basis or up-front in full.

Alternatively, you can opt for the pre-paid package to fund your training.
