How to choose the right establishment
Cheap driving instructor training – is it really worth it? You could end up paying more in the long run or lose everything you paid. You only get three attempts at part 2 and part 3 test. Fail either part three times and it’s all over for 2 years.
Years of experience have shown us that potential instructors that opted for cheaper training were faced with unreliable, late-arriving trainers, trainers not keeping a log of the training or subjects covered, not fully covering the subject, and certainly not covering the core competency of any of the subjects. Many did not even have the all-important correct updated training information. These trainers are not ORDIT registered.
The DVSA administers the voluntary (ORDIT) Official Register of Driving Instructor Training.
We are ORDIT registered.
There are many organisations that offer training to become a driving instructor but there is no statutory scheme governing the training of driving instructors.
Choose an establishment that:
- Has over 10 years of training experience
- Is ORDIT registered
- Has testimonials
- Is recognised in the industry
Do your own research:
- Read their reviews
- Speak to instructors that trained with them
- Do they offer any sort of assurance?
- Ask to sample a free lesson
- Ask to sit in on a training session
- What sort of training material do they offer?
- Can you train at your own time?
- Is there a job available after qualifying?
We offer all the above. You simply can’t go wrong choosing Streetwise
