Becoming a Driving Instructor;

In this blog we will be looking at the benefits of becoming a driving instructor and the vital steps necessary in order to become a driving instructor in the first instance. It is important to remember that the ability to be a successful driving instructor not only lies in the certificates achieved but also in the way that you present yourself and your personality overall. It takes a motivated and dedicated individual to achieve great results in this field and as with any other career, you must ask yourself one important question, do I think I would be a good person for the job?

Why is this a great career opportunity?

Being a driving instructor is a rewarding and refreshing career choice. Not only do you get to meet new people frequently and spend a large amount of time conversing with students and other drivers, but you also get the satisfaction of teaching those students, and watching them learn over time.

What’s more is that when becoming an ADI (approved driving instructor), you are able to work flexibly and only work the hours that you want to. Essentially, you are able to become your own boss and take control of your daily schedule. There is also a choice between full-time and part-time work if this is preferred.

What training is required to become a Driving Instructor?

Training to be a driving instructor is something that takes determination, however, the procedure itself is fairly straightforward in structure.

It is important to note that the key requirements to be eligible for such training is to have a valid UK drivers license for a period of 3 years or more, be 21 years of age or over, and have no serious criminal records. It is also worth stating that you are unlikely to pass initial application stages if you have ever been banned from driving, convicted of any non-motoring offences or have 6 or more penalty points.

The very first stage is extremely simple, as you have to get a full criminal record check. Once this has been approved, you are encouraged to revise the ADI registration guide.

Following these stages, you are then able to start the more important aspects of the procedure. Starting with the ADI qualifying process application. Once this is passed, real ADI training begins, during which time you take (and pass) the 3 ADI qualifying tests and eventually apply for your ADI badges. For more in-depth information and details about this process, please visit the official web page here https://www.gov.uk/become-a-driving-instructor.

Training to be an ADI with Arrow Driving Academy;

Once you have passed your last test to become an ADI you can start moving forward with your ambitions. First, you will have to purchase your qualifying ADI badge which is a total of £300. This will then have to be renewed every 4 years. Fear not, this does not mean that you have to re-take the tests, only repay the fee to ensure your ADI badge is valid.

Following this, Arrow are here to help with the final stage of ADI training and are able to aid you in becoming a successful driving instructor.
