Train to be a driving instructor in 2018 and you’ll enjoy the benefits of being self-employed but with the backing of one of the UK’s longest established driving schools.  The average driving instructor earns around £750 a week, but it could be more depending on the hours you choose. There is also the opportunity to earn while you learn and start giving lessons whilst training.


Instructor training can be a life-changing choice, so it’s important to choose the best driving instructor trainer (DIT). As one of the UK’s ORDIT registered driving instructor training organisations, System Driving School has been teaching instructors to the highest standards since 1971.

What to expect in training...

To become a qualified Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Approved Driving Instructor, you have to pass the DVSA test, which is in three parts. The parts can be revisited as many times as you need.

Part 1 – driving theory

This part can be done at home and using our online program, and other supporting materials. You can arrange the test when you’re ready. Your instructor trainer will give you 2 hours of support for this part. You’ll be tested on road procedure traffic signs and signals, driving test and laws, and instructional techniques.

Part 2 – driving ability

Practical driving sessions with one of our instructor trainers will bring your personal driving ability up to the high level required by the DVSA. Your trainer – local to your area – will prepare you for a 1-hour practical test, and in-car and online support will also help you attain the high standard of competence required. In all you’ll get 12 hours of 1-to-1 training, and additional time for 1-to-2 training in an in-car buddy-system.

Part 3 – Instructional ability

For this part you’ll receive 38 hours of 1-to-1 training with your System Driving Instructor Trainer (DIT)  providing you with the skills and underpinning knowledge to deliver a course of effective driving training.

The training you will receive will be:

  • Highly focused on developing your skills as a driving instructor before introducing driving lesson subjects
  • Supported with additional learning materials for each in-car training session you complete
  • Mapped against your own individual learning plan and progress record

We can even offer you the opportunity to start training before you pass the final DVSA test. This means you can start your career in an instructor vehicle, earn money and practice for up to 6 months

After passing all three parts of the DVSA test, you’ll be awarded a green badge that means you’re a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI).
