Meet Phil
LDC Driving Instructor Phil

I joined LDC after careful consideration and plenty of research into the different training organisations available. The reason I joined LDC was for the high quality of training and the future prospects offered. The LDC system for Driving Instructor Training surpassed all other organisations without exception. Not only did LDC offer reasonable Franchise fees, they also offered a well planned, and structured Training syllabus for both the Potential Driving Instructor and learner drivers. The system for each is both thorough and simple to follow.

LDC has been the ideal way to start my own business and I would definitely recommend them to anybody looking at becoming a Driving Instructor.

LDC Driving Instructor Cath

When I began to think about starting a family I realised that a Monday to Friday 9-5 office job wasn't the best option when it came to childcare (and I was bored with being stuck in an office as well!) so started looking into changing career - something with more flexible hours was what I wanted. That's when I came across being a driving instructor and training with LDC was my best move.

Training to be a driving instructor is hard work (I nearly had a heart attack when the training box turned up - it was huge!) but the LDC package is done in a way that makes it fun! I remember reading some of the theory notes and the way it's written there are comments in that are exactly the thoughts that go through your mind - I lost count of the number of times I burst out laughing because it was "so true". The part 2 and 3 training was great too. I'll never forget some of the examples of possible pupil behaviour that my trainer Les came up with - "dodge the kangaroos" was the best!!

The support both during the training and once you've qualified is fabulous - the induction course has loads of information to take in but you'll have a great laugh with some of Bob's stories! Everyone is so friendly and helpful - you feel like part of the family. Even though your running your own business, you don't feel as if you're on your own at all so you have the best of both worlds.

Now I've given my first few lessons, being a driving instructor is even better than I though it would be. I wish I'd done it sooner.

LDC Driving Instructor Wai

I wanted a career change that would be flexible and manageable. This also needed to be applied to the training I would receive. After a lot of researching and talking to "real" LDC instructors and trainers I chose to train with LDC and have achieved my goal in becoming a driving instructor. More importantly I am still able to get advice and help from LDC.

How do I choose?

Before you decide to train with or join a company, you need to ask yourself what is uniquely special about the company? Firstly, what does it have that will ensure you qualify quickly and cost effectively as a driving instructor? Secondly, how can you be sure it will provide you with the right route to a secure and decent living thereafter? We have provided below a summary of how LDC can satisfy the former.

Why choose LDC for the driving instructor training
1. LDC operates a very successful and profitable driving school, which is why you represent a real asset to us once qualified and why we will give you our full commitment to get you qualified. We are not one of the new showcase driving schools or old declining driving schools who make all their profit from selling driving instructor training courses. Such driving schools and all driving instructor training companies are in the main only interested in providing the contracted hours of training. So despite what they may say once they have done the minimum amount of training you are very much on your own.

2. The LDC driving instructor training course is designed to get you through the ADI examination in the most effective way possible rather than to make it easy and convenient for us to deliver. This is why we have developed state-of-the-art training resources, modern support methods and a network of highly qualified and motivated LDC trainers despite the significant extra costs this involves.

3. We normally allocate one of our qualified driving instructor trainers to undertake your practical driving instructor training from start to finish.

4. Our pass rates are second to none with 99.2% of students passing Part 1, 95.9% passing Part 2 and 82.4% passing Part 3 last year.

5. Our unique state-of-the-art student centred driving instructor training open learning resources (e.g. DVDs, software, guides, workbooks etc) are provided from day one to enable you to take control of the learning process and make maximum use of any spare time you may have.

6. The driving instructor training for each part of the qualifying ADI exam is overlapped so that the development of skills can commence immediately and less time is wasted waiting for exam dates.

7. We can provide the option of a trainee licence with LDC should the extra practical experience be useful to help you pass Part 3 of the qualifying exam or if it becomes necessary to start earning money before fully qualifying. Unlike many organisations we provide sufficient training to enable you to pass this test without a trainee licence. Please note not all driving schools offer this option, for example the AA driving school do not support the DSA's trainee licence scheme.

8. Free additional driving instructor training is provided in the unlikely event that you fail any part of the qualifying exam and additional re-try training thereafter should you fail Part 2 or 3 a third time. In this way success is virtually assured sooner or later.

9. Finally because we are genuinely a successful driving school we provide far better training and charge almost a £1,000 less then those heavily advertised driving instructor training colleges and showcase driving schools who solely make money from driving instructor training. The full cash price of the course is £2,495 but if you decide to join and rent a car from us after qualifying we offer cash back and savings worth £1,500 thus the real cost of the course could be viewed as only being £875. Best of all you are entitled to these incentives immediately after you join not several months later after potentially paying thousands of pounds in franchise fees or subject to you remaining on the franchise for 12 months.
