Become a Driving Instructor

Approved Driving Instructor Training in Swindon

If you're looking to become a Driving Instructor, here at Julie Murphy's Driving School we pride ourselves in providing high quality Driving Instructor Training with great pass rates. The qualifying process to become a Driving Instructor can seem very daunting, but our school help you to achieve your ultimate goal. We support you through the process, initially as a Pdi (potential driving instructor) providing you with all you need to know - not only to pass, but to teach real pupils.

We offer Driving Instructor training on a pay as you go basis, so you don't need to pay out large sums of money up front only to find you are not happy with progress. We don't run big advertising campaigns either as we rely on our reputation, so we strive to achieve the best results at all times. 

Once you've qualified, there are opportunities to join our Driving School, which is the largest independent Driving school in the Swindon, Wiltshire area. We pride ourselves in having a great team of instructors, some of which were trained by the school.  We maintain a very professional, but friendly approach to working together, meeting regularly for CPD (continual personal development) and to be social. There are many benefits to working for us, with some very unique opportunities like working at Castle Combe Race Circuit training young drivers or carrying out driving assessments for Honda in Swindon, as well as teaching learners of course!

Here is some information on each of the three tests to qualify:

The part 2 test consists of the following and lasts around 1 hour.

  • Eyesight test
  • Vehicle safety checks
  • A test of your driving ability

We'll initially assess your normal style of driving and work with you to bring your driving up to the required standard as set out by the DVSA. Identifying and agreeing your best way of learning so tailoring it specifically to your needs to ensure the best results.

ADI Part 3 - Test of Instructional Ability

This part is due to change in October 2017, but you can be assured our training is constantly reviewed to provide the most up to date training. The part 3 test lasts about 1 hour and will involve the trainee bringing along a 'real pupil' and providing a lesson where they will be assessed on the 3 main competencies: lesson planning, risk management and teaching learning strategies.

We provide part 3 training incorporating the set criteria that will be assessed initially in a role play environment and as you progress into a 'real pupil' situation by sponsoring you to obtain a trainee license. Our Driving School provides all the support needed not only by the trainer, but also by other instructors within the school as we pride ourselves with a team work approach.

Driving Instructor Course

'This qualification process has been in equal measure, the best fun, the most frustrating, the most gut wrenching process I have ever gone through. One thing is for sure it that if it wasn't for Julie, I would have given up months ago. Julie has been the most brilliant trainer with the patience of a saint and determination of a ring fighter to get me through this final test. Yes it has been frustrating dealing with my own doubts but not once has Julie given up on me. Not only has she trained me to her standards (well above those expected from the DVSA) she has given me a career and job satisfaction never experienced in my whole working life. I am so proud to have her name on the roof of my car as I move to this next chapter.'
