"There was no 'hard sell'. In my view LDC was the only company that really ticked all the boxes! I feel I am part of a very special family and wish that I had taken the plunge years before I did!"
"The training was very thorough and completely enjoyable, with a superb system of training, with lots of back up... after just a year I can honestly say I can't think of a better way to earn my living."
"Everyone is so friendly. The support both during the training and once you've qualified is fabulous... being a driving instructor is even better than I though it would be. I wish I'd done it sooner."
"The training and support I have received from LDC has been excellent. I found that LDC offered a really good franchise deal that others couldn't match, especially as I planned to work part time."
"I had thought about being a driving instructor for many years. I have now qualified as an ADI and because I was so impressed with the training I received from LDC I decided to join them. I would fully recommend LDC to anyone."
"LDCs Training Programme was great. It's unique, thorough & well planned along with a lot of support from all the trainers. I can comfortably recommend LDC as a great company to train with and work with."

"After a moan about work and 5.30am starts, my partner suggested that I became a driving instructor. I would recommend LDC to anyone the training given is absolute second to none. I can not thank LDC enough"
"I passed with a 5/6. Not bad for an old dog, learning new tricks. The job with LDC turned out to be what I expected and then some. For the first time in years I look forward to working."
"The amazing training allowed me to pass all three of my ADI exams first time, even achieving a high grade! I'm now enjoying a successful career as an ADI, and have not looked back once."
"LDC are always very professional, competent and friendly. I am now doing a job that I love and I can't wait every day to get to work. The best decision I have ever made."
"Trying to find the most suitable driving instructor training company quickly developed into a minefield of people asking me to sign contracts and sign cheques. I'm glad I chose LDC who I found very genuine in their quest to help me."
"I chose LDC after considering other companies because I thought the LDC Training package and Franchise was the best available. I am still part of the LDC franchise after 12 years and am very happy."

About the qualification you need
To legally operate as a driving instructor in the UK you are required to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) qualifying examination which is split into three parts.

To pass the above tests you will receive the very best training available from our dedicated nationwide team of ORDIT qualified tutors, along with our fully guided state-of-the-art open learning driving instructor training course. For us, it is vital that you pass the ADI examination and go on to establish a successful LDC driving school business in your area as quickly as possible. This is why our training is so comprehensive in comparison with our competitors and why we put so much emphasis on helping your business flourish once qualified with our incredible business start up package.

We passed with LDC... so can you.

Driving Instructor Course Students

For more details about the requirements and the qualifying examination please see About the DVSA.

Please note the Part 3 test changes in 2018
From 2018 the DVSA examiner will observe you giving a real driving lesson to one of your pupils rather than the examiner pretending to be a pupil. In other words the examiner whats to see you performing the job for real. Consequently any course must incorporate on the job training to ensure you succeed. Naturally this favours those who are being trained by a well established driving school such as LDC, rather than an organisation who is just trying to sell you an instructor training course.

DVSA Trainee License
Once you have passed Part 2 and have completed your initial Part 3 training you are allowed to work as a trainee driving instructor provided you are sponsored by a driving school that supports the Government's Trainee Licence scheme, such as LDC. This potentially gives you up to 6 months real on-the-job training to help you pass Part 3 and start earning money earlier than might otherwise be possible. With the introduction of the new Part 3 test in the pipeline this option becomes even more important to have. Please note Trainee Licence positions are reserved for students who have been exclusively trained by LDC.

Best driving school franchise

This is a genuine opportunity to be your own boss and run your own LDC driving school business with all the support necessary to help ensure your success. See About the job for more details.

Your choice of car
With LDC you have a wide choice of vehicle that you can use for your LDC driving school. Use your own car (if suitable) or buy a car through us at significant discounts or rent a driving school car. Indeed, the saving you could make by purchasing a new car through LDC alone could easily cover the cost of becoming a driving instructor and best of all you can do this as soon as you start the course.
