I had thought about being a driving Instructor for many years but always a little scared to take that step. Eventually I decided I was going to make the move and so started to look into the options. I found many websites of companies that would train you but it wasn't until I came across LDC website that I felt they put all the facts there for you to read. To me it seemed that they where very much motivated to get you through all your exams and not just to take your money.
I then continued to follow the path of LDC and started to do my training with them. Throughout the whole time there was always someone who could answer your questions and a brilliant forum where you can discuss questions with fellow trainee's and instructors. I have now qualified as an ADI and because I was so impressed with the training I received I decided to continue with the LDC franchise.
LDC have helped me achieve my goal and in the process made it very enjoyable. I would fully recommend LDC to anyone interested in becoming a driving instructor.Read more success stories...
After deciding I wanted to be a driving instructor I spent 3 months researching various companies offering instructor training. Once I knew what was important I was able to narrow my search down to about 3 companies.
I had a meeting with the local LDC representative and he was more than happy to answer all my questions. There was not the "hard sell" that I'd experienced at some other meetings and I came away with the feeling that LDC didn't just want to train you – they wanted you to succeed. In my view LDC was the only company that really ticked all the boxes!
I was working part-time when I started my training so was able to fit Part 1 and Part 2 training around my work schedule. When the time came for Part 3 training I made the decision to give up my job and concentrate 100% on getting my Green Badge. My Part 3 tutor was fantastic and made the in-car training fun too. LDC prides itself on making learning to drive fun – this also applies to instructor training. It was a really enjoyable training course even though it was hard work.
There was never any question that I wouldn't join the franchise upon qualifying. The ongoing support is fantastic. I love using the LD System and my pupils love it too. I can't imagine how instructors manage without it!
I would (and do) highly advise anyone looking to become an ADI and having a flexible franchise to consider LDC. I feel I am part of a very special family and wish that I had taken the plunge years before I did!Read more success stories...
When I decided to become a driving instructor I did a lot of research into the different companies. What made me look more closely at LDC was how they trained learners as I felt the LD System made sense to me and was the way I would have liked to have been trained so felt I could sell the benefits to others. The instructor training course was based on the same principles and approach, the home study allowed me to prepare for my in car training sessions and therefore make the most of this valuable time.
Before starting to teach we had a 3 day induction course at the head office which was invaluable in how to run your business correctly and professionally, and how to make the most of the LD System.
I have now been with the franchise for over 7 years now and it works perfectly for me. It allows me the freedom to build up my own reputation whilst having the benefits of their marketing expertise, brand name and most importantly the LD System as my USP to help me stand out from the rest.
Not only can I use the LD workbooks and DVDs but I can also sell them at a good profit, especially as they give me 50 LD workbooks a year worth £750 as part of my franchise agreement!Read more success stories...
