Don't fall for the newspaper and TV adverts - if you want to become an Approved Driving Instructor, do some research first. It could potentially save you thousands of pounds in the long run...

Parts 1, 2 & 3

The DVSA qualifying examination is just that - one examination. It's split into three parts, but it's important to understand how the three parts work together.

Most candidates should be able to pass Part 1 for very little financial outlay, just the correct study materials.

When contemplating Part 2 training, the driving habits you develop during this training are essential to your ability to progress to Part 3 - for example, commentary driving during Part 2 is something that's not particularly emphasised with some instructor training companies, but it's essential to understanding how Part 3 works.

A minimum of 40 hours' Part 3 training is a legal requirement before taking the examination. My training is one-on-one: there are no other students in the car, so if you pay for 40 hours in the instructor's seat, that's what you get.

I offer a complete training package, covering all three parts, but on a pay-as-you-go basis. I do not take large amounts of money up-front, and I don't offer a 'guaranteed job' on qualifying, as I'm not part of a franchise. These 'guaranteed jobs' are merely a way of selling instructor training courses, so be careful when choosing your trainer.

Oh, and my Part 3 pass-rate is currently 100%, because if I don't think you have what it takes to become an ADI, I'll tell you. That way, you don't waste your time - or money.
