Become A Driving Instructor

Many people dream of changing their career and improving their lifestyle. They may want to have more control over their working day by being able to choose the days and hours that they work.

Why Become a Driving Instructor?

Working as a Driving Instructor gives you the opportunity to be your own boss, work the hours that you choose and be rewarded for your efforts.

Helping a learner driver to gain the necessary skills to pass a driving test and become a safe and confident driver is extremely rewarding.

As a self-employed Driving Instructor, you are free to choose the days and the hours you want to work. Some instructors will work weekends and have days off during the week, others never work weekends and so may choose to only work 9-5 pm on weekdays.

Spot On Driving is a local family run business that prides itself on giving quality instruction. We offer instructor training that will, not only help you to pass all 3 of the qualifying tests, but help to set you up for your future professional career as a driving instructor.

We guarantee a position in our driving school once qualified should you wish to accept it. Alternatively, you may wish to launch your own business and be completely independent, the choice is completely yours.

Our ADI training courses are part time and follow a successful training structure. There is plenty of flexibility built in so that training can be arranged around your current commitments, this way you can work at your own pace.

Driving instructor training is most effective when carried out at regular intervals for short periods of time (2 -4 hours). This keeps you in frequent contact with your trainer, constantly motivated and allows adequate time for your home study and driving practice between your sessions.

To learn more about the job please order a copy of our free 60 page book, where you can read the case studies from many driving instructors who talk about why they came into this industry, how their lives have changed and their thoughts on the job.

We are happy to arrange a meeting at the Spot On office in Marnhull, Dorset when you can meet your trainer, see how you would fit into the team and observe the day to day running of our driving school.
