Driving instructor training packages

Making the decision to become a driving instructor isn’t always an easy one that’s why we have kept our training packages as simple as they can be! Remember - we want to train you to be the best driving instructor you can be so our driving school is the best it can be. We’ve dedicated time into our ORDIT trainings and have developed a great system and reputation for training great driving instructors.

There are three options for you, they’re designed to suit everyones budget and lifestyle. If you have any questions please pick the phone up and talk to us about your training needs.

Are there other fee’s and expenses?

You’ll notice on the packages we mention DBS, test and license fee’s not included. These are additional fee’s that you have to pay to apply to become a driving instructor, check your criminal record, attempt the tests and get your trainee or ADI badges. These fee’s can be found below - they are correct at the time of publishing (March 2021) - please remember fee’s can fluctuate.

Item Cost
Criminal record check £6
Part 1 test £81 (per attempt)
Part 2 test £111 (per attempt)
Part 3 test £111 (per attempt)
Trainee license (optional) £140
ADI badge £300

The minimum cost of the additional fee’s is £609 if you chose not to use a trainee license - we do really recommend trainee license’s as you get so much added experience to prepare you for your part 3 test. With the trainee license you have an additional £749 to pay on top of course fee’s, and thats assuming you pass your tests first time. Once you have qualified you will need to apply for your ADI badge, this costs £300 and has to be done within 12 months of passing your part 3 (immediately if you wish to carry on working as a driving instructor) and this badge needs to be renewed every 4 years (£300) and you will have a standards check within that 4 year period.

Are there any other fee’s?

Not a fee exactly but something you need to consider, when you are on your trainee license or qualified you will need to consider what car you will use and what franchise (if any) you wish to take. A franchise may offer the benefit of a car included but you may earn more money by sorting this yourself. Remember, a driving school car will need special driving school insurance, dual controls and good, regular maintenance.

What training option is right for me

We can’t answer that for you, some people have budget restrictions so pay as you train is the better options, some people have time constraints and want to do it as quickly as possible. We can advice you what may be right for you but it’s down to you to make that decision - we do know that those who opt for a training package are more likely to stick through the entire process.
