Driving Instructor Training

driveJohnson’s is an established driving school that provides approved driving instructor training courses for anyone that is considering a change of career and wishes to become a driving instructor.

To successfully become an approved driving instructor (ADI), you must first successfully pass all three sections of the driving instructor training tests. Part 1 of your training will cover your theory, then moving onto parts 2 and 3 which cover your ability to drive and your ability to teach respectively.

Each driving instructor training course we provide includes all of the following, unless stated otherwise.

  • You’ll have 50 hours of local, one-to-one tuition with a dedicated trainer.

Money back guarantee for driving instructor training

Let’s face it, any money back guarantees you see online are either of the following:

You must be tied into a franchise for 12-24 months, paying well over the odds to receive just your training fee back. For example, you pay over £20,000 in franchise fees to get just £1000-£2000 back.

Or, the money back guarantee for qualifying is so complicated that the chances of you get any money back is almost zero because of all the small print/terms and conditions .

driveJohnson’s driving instructor training keeps it simple – no complicated jargon. We offer £500 back on your training if you decide to join our franchise and our franchise costs are considerably lower than other national driving schools.


Conditions for our £500 cash back in brief:

You should join and be a franchisee of driveJohnson’s for 1 year to receive £250 back and a further 6 months to receive the remaining £250.
Don’t forget our franchise fee’s are considerably lower than our competitors and you are welcome to leave us with just 4 weeks notice. Most of our competitors require a compulsory 12-18 months paying £200+ a week in franchise. We’ll let you do the maths. Visit: 5 things you should know about instructor training and franchise

About our driving instructor training

It’s imperative to us that you receive one-to-one training with a grade A driving instructor. All of our driving instructor trainers are our own. When you join us you will receive access to our online Training Zone which is exclusive to anyone paying us for driving instructor training.

Before you join, speak to the owner of the company Anthony Johnson, grade A 51/51 (The highest grade you can get) and ORDIT registered, rather than a sales person. Hear it from the horses mouth rather than someone on commission that may not care about your training requirements. All driving instructor training is overseen by the owner which is probably why we have a 100% success (based on never having a trainee fail the part 2 or 3 three times).

I came over to driveJohnson’s for my instructor training after doing one £1000 predominately online course. Obviously I didn’t read the 20 pages of small print, so I learnt the hard way. I think I had around 20 hours of training with the owner himself, Anthony, and I passed my ADI Part 3 first time. The training was obviously quality and I would recommend driveJohnson’s to anyone who is serious about their training. Since qualifying I decided to join driveJohnson’s and I haven’t looked back.
I decided to train with driveJohnson’s after my sister and a few friends passed with driveJohnson’s. I managed to complete the part 2 test on my own and with my sisters help. However, the ADI part 3 test is something you can’t learn about online fully or teach yourself. You need practical training. I received around 40 hours of training with Anthony and then went on to a trainee licence and passed first time. Anthony’s attention to detail is immaculate, his concise wording and intelligent ways of making things simple is what makes him stand out as one of the leading trainers in the UK in my opinion.
I trained with driveJohnson’s for part 2 and part 3. I passed exams first time. Excellent training, I don’t know anyone who has failed with them. Everyone I asked in advanced said they passed their part 3’s first time with driveJohnson’s.
