The Exams

Flexible training schedule

Your training will take around 100-120 hours, but you don’t have to do all of this in one go. Provided that you complete all your tests within a two-year period after the date of your Part 1 test pass, your actual training schedule is entirely down to you.

Many people transition into driving instructor training from other careers and must train around their existing job and other commitments. This is not a problem, as we can offer training times to suit you.
