LOOKING FOR A CAREER CHANGE?
BECOME A DRIVING INSTRUCTOR FROM JUST £1999*
Need more independence? Want to work around your other commitments? Does an unrivalled sense of achievement each and every time a pupil passes their test sound appealing?
We can offer you this and much more with our Driving Instructor Academy, providing you with the best training available, backed by our extensive experience to support you at every step.
The course itself consists of three parts:
PART 1: Theory & Hazard Perception
PART 2: Driving Ability
PART 3: Instructional Ability
We will give you all the necessary materials for PART 1 (so you can practice at home in your own time), provide lessons for PART 2 (up to a maximum of ten hours) and loan you a car free of charge for your first test. We will also provide 40 hours training for PART 3 to cover off all necessary disciplines for your test and again loan you a car free of charge for your first test. Once your training is complete you will be given the opportunity under close supervision to take learners out and teach them to further enhance your abilities under the pink training licence scheme (additional costs apply). Extra lessons outside of the package and additional test car hire are charged at £40 per hour.
As part of your final stage of training you will be offered the opportunity to ride along and observe one of our many Grade A Instructors and see how they put into practice the skills that you have or are still learning on a daily basis. You will also have the opportunity to join us for our social events and meetings if you wish. All this for just one fee. Once training has been completed you will have the option to take out a trainee licence to further enhance your skills prior to the part 3 test. As part of our service we will be able to support you with selecting vehicles, finance, insurance, dual controls and anything else you may need when you qualify, we may even be able to loan you a training vehicle whilst you are on your pink training badge, subject to availability at the time.
*The only additional cost for qualification you will have is for the tests and currently these are: PART 1 - £81, PARTS 2 & 3- £111 each part. To qualify for the course cost of £1999 payment is required in full, we do offer payment plans and these can be discussed on a trainee by trainee basis to what you can afford each month. We do not charge extra for monthly payments! You now also have the option of spreading the cost of your course by using our finance partner Payl8r allowing you to pay in installments if you choose to, all finance is subject to terms and acceptance. All details are available at checkout and you can use the online calculator to ensure your decision is an affordable one by clicking on this link.
No refunds will be given under any circumstances for hours not completed once payment is received and 14 days have elapsed as this acts as a cooling off period. You will also have a maximum time frame of two years to complete the Academy course, after this any hours not completed will be lost. (A majority of trainees only take six months)
Unless a minimum of 48 hours cancellation notice is given by the trainee in the event a lesson cannot be attended, that lesson will still be charged for at a rate of £40 per hour.
