New Year, New Start: Becoming a Driving Instructor

Do you want to make 2018 your year? Are you looking for a career change? Do you think you have what it takes to become a qualified driving instructor?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be interested in joining Arrow Driving Academy. We can help you becoming an advanced driving instructor from the initial stages through to completion, supporting you every step of the way.

What are the benefits of a career in a driving school?

Becoming a driving instructor is no easy feat, it takes dedication, motivation and most of all it takes the ability to understand and communicate with others at the highest standard. Before considering this as a career you need to have the passion to teach others, and the drive to become a successful individual who can take on the challenging work and exams to better your career in the long-run. You can become your own boss.

Being a driving instructor allows for a flexible schedule that suits your lifestyle, one which you can adapt throughout the year and even the weeks to ensure that you are living your life to the full. It’s also an extremely rewarding career as, not only do you get to meet new people frequently and spend your day socializing with others, but you also get the satisfaction of teaching your students and watching them grow and succeed.

What steps would I need to take?

Training to become a driving instructor is not something that can happen overnight. It must be something that you can dedicate your time and efforts to and something that you truly want. However, the structure and steps you need to take are very straightforward.

With our help, you would could become a driving instructor quickly and simply, all you need is dedication, motivation, a valid UK driver’s license for a period of 3 years or more, be over 21 years of age and have no serious criminal records.

Step one is simple, all you must do is complete a full criminal record check. Once this is approved, you can begin your journey.

We first advise that you begin to revise the ADI registration guide, to increase your chances of passing all the upcoming tests with ease. Following this, you can begin with the ADI qualifying process application – this is the final stage which will determine whether you are suitable for an instructing career!

Once passed, it’s time to get into the important stuff – real ADI training and exams, including 3 ADI qualifying tests and applying for your ADI badges. You can learn more about the legal stages of becoming a driving instructor at: https://www.gov.uk/become-a-driving-instructor.
