Automatic Driving Instructor Training
Become A Driving Instructor, Teaching Automatic, With DrewMatic
The first thing you that you should know is that you need to have held a full UK driving licence for three years and be over the age of 21 before you can start thinking about becoming an instructor, it doesn’t matter if it’s an Automatic or Manual licence.
If that sounds like you, then you have the basic requirements to begin your instructor tests.
Click HERE for the official Government Criteria for becoming a driving instructor.
The tests can be quite difficult, so make sure you’ve thought it through properly:
Do you have good road safety knowledge and excellent driving skills?
Are you able to give clear instructions and able to adapt your teaching style?
Instructor training can be quite expensive, so make sure you’ve done some thorough research before embarking on your tests.
Once you’ve decided that you definitely want to become a driving instructor, you’ll have to begin training.
In order to acquire the necessary qualifications, there are three tests you need to take.
The first test is computer based and will examine your knowledge of theory and hazard perception.
The second is a practical driving test and the third is a practical test of your ability to instruct.
The second and third parts are known to be the toughest and once you pass part one, you have a two year period in which to complete all three tests, or else you have to start again.
It can take anything between six months and two years to complete all three, and sometimes even longer!
Once you’ve passed part 2, and completed 40 hours part 3 training, you can then start earning while you’re learning and begin charging for your services, whilst at this stage we’ll be responsible for you, and you’ll receive ongoing training, mentoring, support and evaluation as you prepare for your part 3 exam
You have to be organised and arrange lesson plans for your learners in order to get them test ready.
You have to take them through every aspect of driving that they can expect to be tested on, from performing basic vehicle checks to completing complex manoeuvres.
Once you’ve passed part 3, you may wish to work for yourself as an independent driving instructor, or perhaps you’d prefer to be part of our franchise here.
Credit history for acquiring a lease car is not a problem and we can provide you with excellent assistance in this regard, as we work very closely with an excellent lease company.
Becoming a Driving Instructor is not easy, after you passed the qualifying tests, you’ll be self employed, you’ll probably end up working unsociable hours.
You’ll have to deal with loss of money through cancellations, sometimes aggression, various emotional states, other road users behaving badly and you’ll have to remain calm AND professional throughout.
BUT, if you can do all these things, then you will enjoy the feeling you get when you see someone YOU have trained, gain their full drivers licence, there’s no feeling in the world quite like it.
DrewMatic will train you not just to pass the qualifying examinations, but we will also train you in the most up to date driving and instructional techniques ensuring you’re always going to be a successful driving instructor, just like our existing instructors!
So what’s it going to be?
Who’s it going to be?
So, other schools will undoubtedly offer you cheaper training, but is it good value, is it good quality, are they being truthful?
You’ll be forced to accept lessons at massively reduced discounts, imagine having to do those utterly ridiculous 5 hours for £25 or 4 hours for £44!
The lowest price deal DrewMatic provide is 5 hours for £99!!!
Be very wary of the radio advertising, be careful of the ‘we will not be beaten on price,’ statements and take the ‘ we’re more established!’ spin that they give you.
Ask them if their instructor trainer has the level of expertise our instructor trainers have.
We reckon that they don’t!

Driving Instructor Training With DrewMatic
You’ll have to prepare for your Part One ADI Test yourself, but we can help you source QUALITY learning materials.
Once you’ve passed Part 1 you get to do the good stuff.
You train to do your Part 2 Driving Test then you complete 40 hours Part 3 Training (can be done in tandem.)
Once you’ve passed Part 2 and completed your 40 hours, you can, if you wish, go on to a trainee licence and start earning money and teaching students to drive, this can help supplement any additional training that you may require.
