What's this going to cost?

Some organisations charge all the fees in one go without possibility of a refund if you decide to pull out if you find it is not for you.  We will train you on a 1 to 1 pay as you go basis.  Our fee per hour is £39 with a minimum of 2 hours per lesson.  If you can complete the training in your car it is £35 per hour.  Waiting periods for tests are quite long, the whole process could last between 6 months and 2 years.  We recommend studying for this whilst employed, do not give up your job straight away.  Whilst there are 3 distinct parts to become a driving instructor, there is overlap between them.

A part 1 (theory) pass can be achieved with a minimum of expense.  It will take a lot of study, and the purchase of books for research and of course the test fee.  You can practice theory and hazard perception tests for free on our theory test pro website.  Call us for a chat.

A part 2 (driving ability) pass will require the help of our instructor, an assessment drive will indicate how many hours of training is required to get your driving to the required standard.  Some think this is easy, it is not.  Typically 10-20 hours of tuition may be needed at £39 per hour with a minimum of 2 hours per lesson.  A lot of what is learnt here will feed into your part 3 driving instructor training.

Part 3 (instructional ability) is the toughest of the tests and the pass rate nationally is low.  Typically you will require 40+ hours (40 hours record) at £39 per hour with a minimum of 2 hours per lesson.   Once you have completed 40 hours in total, you can apply for a PDI trainee licence otherwise known as a pink badge (click here for more information).  This is your chance to put your practice into action with real customers paying you for quality tuition.  A further 20 hours training (declaration record) will be required or/and a minimum of one fifth (supervision record) of your PDI lessons conducted with a ADI.  This will give you more experience for your part 3 test.

When you have passed, come and join SuperDriver!  Visit our ADI's required page for more information.
