Course dates

Our driving instructor training course is a 5 day hands-on practical intensive course. The course is broken down into two separate stages. The first stage is a two-day course where we teach you all the skills necessary to pass the first two qualifying exams, otherwise known as the Part 1 and 2 tests. We then invite you back for a further three days.

Frequently asked questions

What's the qualification process?

In order to qualify as a driving instructor, you first have to pass three tests. These are known as the Part One, Part Two and Part Three. Each test has to be passed in order. Superdrive Academy provide you with all the necessary training material and have created a first class training course which will help you pass all three tests and get your career started as quickly as possible.

How long does it take to train?

The answer to this question all depends on your availability. Our course is 50 hours long and includes some homestudy, this is necessary to keep up the momentum of your training. Your course includes training for all three tests and can be delivered over the space of ten days but as mentioned earlier, it all depends on your availability so it can take longer to complete the course. We work around you.

Can I train around my existing job?

Yes. A lot of our students lead a busy life, therefore, our courses have to have some flexibility. We alwyas try to work around your existing commitments but you have to take into consideration that the longer it takes you to train, the longer it could take you to pass the test and start your new career.

Am I guaranteed a job?

To date, we've never heard of an unemployed driving instructor. The market has for a long time been very buoyant and we can't see this changing. Once you qualify, you can either start up on your own or you can join our fantastic team and we will keep you very busy if that's what you want. The choice is yours.

Do I have to choose a franchise?

No. Unlike some training companies, we don't tie you into a contract. Just because you trained with us, it doesn't mean that you are stuck with us. You are free to leave us at the end of your training. We will never tie you into any long-term contract. However, you can read more information here about our driving school franchise.

Do you accept ELCAS funding?

Yes. We are an approved training provider for the MOD. Our approval demonstrates that we've developed a good training system and one that the MOD has approved for armed forces who wish to use their ELCAS funding on their resettlement course. We are also ORDIT registered so we can guarantee you that you're in safe hands.
