£40 per hour

I’m one of the best, not one of the cheapest.

If you want to be just another average instructor working at a school on a franchise, earning peanuts and hating every day then I’m not for you.

If you want to become an awesome instructor using effective techniques that allow you to earn great money and become peerless then I’m your man.

There is no contract to sign and I don’t do finance deals or sell you a franchise. You can quit any time you like with no fees or catches and there is nothing extra to pay if you fail exams.

ADI training prices tips

Taking ADI training is expensive and is a big step so here are some tips for you to consider when looking for training.

See my page on the truth about being a driving instructor for more details.

1) Do not be fooled by schools offering training for very low prices. They either hide extra charges or get the money back by signing you up to a franchise where you pay £200+ a week for months. You may have to pay these fees even if you fail the exams.

It happens all the time; people fail part 3 or decide that being an instructor isn’t for them and they get a bill through the post for thousands of pounds. That’s because they signed a contract agreeing to hire a car and be given work for 26 weeks (6 months) at £200 a week. That comes to £5,200 for 6 months and you can be charged this whether or not you complete the course.

They can enforce it by passing it on to debt collectors if you don’t pay. Even worse, if you can’t pay they offer you a finance deal where you have to pay high interest rates like 29% on top of what you owe!

This does not happen with me. I have no contracts, no franchise and all my training is pay as you go. You will never get hit with an unexpected bill.

2) The best ADI trainers tend to work privately as I do. Why would a great trainer work for a driving school?

3) Ask whether the training is 1-2-1. There’s nothing wrong with having another PDI in the back watching you and your trainer in the front but if you’re expecting 1-2-1 training then don’t just assume you’ll get it. Many schools have 2 or 3 instructors training in the car at once.
