driving instructor training costs

They say there's no such thing as a free lunch! There's certainly no such thing as free driving instructor training! However there are ways that you can do your training at a very reasonable price. For one thing you can teach yourself Part 1. Just get the relevant adi theory test dvd's and study for yourself.

In just the same way that learner drivers can speed up the process of learning to drive by diligence, thinking about driving even when not on lessons and studying at home using online resources, so too it's possible to cut down on the cost of training.


There are some driving schools that offer cash back deals and those are definitely worth looking at. However make sure that you read the small print and fully understand any terms and conditions that are attached. Effectively you may end up paying more than the cost of your training in higher franchise fees. Always check the get-out clauses with franchises.

Driving instructor training normally costs around £2,500 to £3,500

Driving instructor loans

Training to become a driving instructor does not come cheap and there's no gaurantee of a pass! Training for all three parts of the qualifying exams can cost up to £3,500 and you may not have that amount of cash up front

Career development loans for trainee driving instructors are available through many financial institutions. Often you will not have to make repayments whilst undergoing training training and for one month after the training has ended. So potentially you can be earning from your new career before you even have to start making loan repayments.
