More about driver instructor training

What does training to become a driving instructor involve?

Your training to become a driving instructor consists of three parts:
Part 1- Theory Training
Taken online using our theory training suite. Supported by books and trainer.

Part 2- Driving Training (14 hours)
All our training for Part 2 is carried out one-to-one, in-car by your dedicated Kinetic trainer.

Part 3- Teacher Training (40 hours)
Also carried out one-to-one with your Kinetic trainer.

Importance of choosing the right trainers

At Kinetic, we only use Ordit registered instructor trainers as they undergo continuous testing of their teaching methods and training material by the DVSA. This ensures that you can have the confidence knowing you’re receiving the highest level of training available.

The DVSA recommends that novice instructors train with an Ordit registered instructor trainer. However, being Ordit registered is voluntary and not compulsory, so many driving instructor schools advertise to train instructors, but are not qualified by Ordit to do so. It takes great dedication and commitment to pass the testing, and you can be rest assured that our trainers are all qualified and will proudly display their training qualification badge in car.

We deliver fantastic 1-to-1 training opportunities and do not train on mass in classrooms, nor do we skimp on training and send you videos to watch. After all, you wouldn’t send a learner driver a video to watch and then send them out on the road to practice on their own, would you? All our training is a personally delivered, 1-to-1 in car experience with your trainer. This truly is the only way to gain the right experience.

Kinetic Driving School has been had many years training driving instructors. We understand that there is no one style of learning. Everyone learns at their own pace and undergoing the 1-to-1 coaching will give you a better understanding of the real-life situations to help you develop your skills.

Client centred learning

Our Training approach is Client Centred Learning based. This is an approach to learning that takes into account how a learner prefers to be taught.
Focusing on the learner and their way of understanding and retaining information will help them improve their skills a lot more effectively and giving them the best opportunity to understand what they are learning quickly.
We want our learners to be the best they can be.
The DVSA changed the way they wanted Instructors to be trained and tested in 2018 with a complete overhaul of the old Part 3 test.
At Kinetic, our trainers are all specialists in Client Centred Learning and take great pride in passing on their skills and knowledge to their trainees. This means each trainee is taught in the most up to date training methods as advised by the DVLA. This not only ensures that we train and produce great driving instructors, but it gives you the best opportunity of passing your exams and achieve the highest grades possible.

Choosing the best option for you

Only you know which training option is best for you and your circumstances.
