Do you want a new career? A new business? More freedom or independence?

Can we offer these? Maybe!Can you achieve these? Definitely!

Becoming an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) is a challenging process. Most websites and trainers will tell you there are three parts to becoming a driving instructor:
 
Part 1 - Theory & Hazard Perception
 
Part 2 - Driving Ability
 
Part 3 - Instruction/Teaching
 
They are not wrong, but it does depend on what you are looking for.... The above 3 parts make you able to deliver 'paid for tuition'. But, they do not necessarily help you to be a successful, profitable driving instructor. Many driving instructors fail inside the first 1-2 years.
Not because they can't teach people to drive. It’s because they haven't developed the necessary skills, or have the support, to run a profitable driving school business. At Better Driver Training we don't want to get you to a good enough standard. We don’t want to then charge you money to watch you sink or swim. Our focus is development - Yours, Ours, and Your Pupils.

Better Driving Instructor Training work with Tri-Coaching Partnership's TCIT programme

There have been vast changes in both the areas of driver training and instructor training.

From driving test changes reflecting the modern world to being allowed on motorways, learner drivers are facing very different needs than they did 10-20 years ago. Life skills, choices and modern living require a modern style of training that produces thinking drivers. This move towards a client focussed approach with a leaning towards coaching over instruction has been at the heart of these changes. Training providers like Better Driver Training have been leading the way on the frontline working with learner drivers and driver improvement. Behind the scenes Tri-Coaching Partnership have been heading the charge with CPD programmes and qualifications. Both of these recognised experts are now working together to offer you ADI training that delivers:

  • Blended course covering Parts 1, 2 & 3
  • 3.5hr per fortnight with a Better trainer
  • Home based learning
  • Structured syllabus based on the DVSA standards
  • Self-styled training
  • Over 80 hours of multi-media content
  • Including 42 hours 1:1 training using a mixture of learning and teaching styles

Excited at the challenge, the new start, new career and chance to become your own boss.
 
They also discovered that it isn't always what was promised - often the hard way!
 
Every potential driving instructor has her or his own reason for starting the job. You may have seen the adverts promising £30-40k per year and working the hours you want. This isn't what we offer, because it often isn't true. What we offer is that we will work with you to design, grow and build your success. We give you advice based on experience and hard work. We only take on people that we believe will strive to support the Better approach to teaching people to drive.
