How Long will in take to train to be a Driving Instructor?
When you're training to be a Driving Instructor it's important to realize that it is not a quick process. You may see some adverts proclaiming "Learn to be a Driving Instructor in 3 months" - good luck with that! There are three parts to the qualifying process and no matter how you phrase it it's going to take some time. A very rough guide would be 6 months onwards. But time is only one factor there is the financial cost of your Driving Instructor Training. There are test fees and registration fees to be paid to the DVSA as well as paying for your training, so from start to finish you should be budgeting for £3000 to £3500 and then you have to sort out a car! It's not all bad news, there is a chance to earn some money while you undertake your Driving Instructor Training so it is possible to start your training without having the full budget.

On top of all that we'll be introducing you to positive Driving Instructor Techniques and attitudes.
