Driving Instructor Training
A comprehensive and up to date instructor training programme that has been cross-referenced to the DVSA National Standards and covers everything you need to know to become a driving instructor.
Structure - Our course is designed in such a way that you will be able to fit it in with your other commitments. There are three sessions in the classroom, which you may attend in any order. (Look out for these in-class sessions being delivered virtually at home on your computer.) The rest of the training will take place in the car and this could either be on a one to one basis, or, where feasible, on a two to one basis. We know that learning takes place more effectively in groups and that two of you in the car will have an enriched learning experience.
We will advise you and work with you to take the three parts of the qualifying examination but ultimately the timing of when you go for these is down to you and how ready you feel.
Content - The content of the course has been developed so that you will understand what is involved in becoming a good driving instructor. This insight will then enable you to go and complete the three parts to the qualifying examination. The course focuses on the National Standards from the DVSA and, in particular, the National Driver and Rider Training Standard, which sets out the competences you will need to demonstrate in order to be a driving instructor. In the same way as you will be placing a far greater emphasis on safe driving for life than getting through a driving test when teaching your pupils to drive, we will be focused on developing your skills as a driving instructor rather than teaching you to pass a test. The Part 3 test is notoriously difficult but often this is because all the focus of the training has been narrowly targeted at the Part 3 pre-set test combinations. We focus on a whole breadth and range of skills and techniques and develop your understanding of when to use and apply them, so that when you go for your part 3 test it is like sitting in an interview and showing off your skills.
Delivery - The course is delivered by trainers, dedicated to ensuring you have a great learning experience and go away equipped to become a successful and competent driving instructor. All our trainers have completed the BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Coaching for Driver Development. This is the only qualification of its kind in the world and focuses specifically on coaching in a safety critical environment. It is accredited by Edexcel / Pearson, who own the title, whilst Tri-Coaching own the content. In addition to this all our trainers have attended a Tri-Coaching accredited course on instructor training. You can be confident that you are with the best people possible and that your experience as you go through your training programme will be enjoyable and rewarding.
