Business link offers more detailed up to date information, this is direct link to the Driving Standards Agency.
You must pass 3 exams to qualify as driving Instructor,The qualifying process consists of three tests:
Theory (part one)
Driving ability assessment (part two)
Test of instructional ability (part three)
Investing in the best training is crucial to you passing,You should be looking for a trainer who will teach you all the skills to become a successful driving Instructor,and has a proven track record with testimonials from clients who you should be able to contact, Be wary of'guaranteed pass' type courses with set amounts of hours that often only covers the basics and may give a narrow view of the role as a driving Instructor and in particular the final exam ,the ADI part 3, which Contrary to popular belief is not a difficult exam if you are correctly trained.
I can offer short training sessions of 2 hours and above or full days or even week long courses at your choice of location,price is dependent on location and duration, if you are currently already training and would like a short assessment to see if I can help you please contact me for further details
Be wary of adverts you may see offering the a new career as an ADI earning £000's in a matter of months, if it sounds too be good to be true it generally is. Some potential driving Instructors teach learners on a 6 month trainee license (which can be identified by a pink badge that must be on display). Teaching as a trainee is fine as long as they are gaining good training.The ADI qualifying exams can be passed without trainee license but you should consider what suits you best, I have some good links with local and naional driving schools if you are looking to start up your new career with a franchise.
Life as an instructor is hard work, takes dedication and continunal self development. However it can be incredibly rewarding to teach people to drive safely, and you can make a reasonable living from it. You will learn many new skills, ranging from teaching to being in business, self employment and its rewards and frustrations!
In this section you will find some information regarding fleet driver training, If you are an employer and you have more than five employees you must by law (health & safety at work act 1974 & corporate manslaughter act 2007) provide driver training for any employee who drives as part of their work duties.
Sadly every week 200 road deaths and serious injuries involve someone at work (source DFT/Think road safety )
Help protect your workforce and yourself from the risks of road traffic collisions, and identify the risks affecting your industry.
Mobile phone use whilst driving is a huge problem as is texting whilst driving. As an employer you should be aware of how contacting an employee whilst they are driving can legally effect you.

If you are a self employed person who drives as part of their job, there are some rules that will effect you Perhaps you may just require some training to help protect yourself from the risk from other road users or helping you reduce your running costs from improved driving practices.
