Instructor Training Introduction

Each year many thousands of people learn to drive. The role of the driving instructor (ADI) has changed considerably over the last few years.

The modern, professional instructor offers…

  • ‘L’ Driver Tuition.
  • Motorway Tuition.
  • Advanced Driver Training.
  • Defensive Driver Training.

Learning to drive is preparation for a life long skill. A properly trained Approved Driving Instructor teaches in a methodical way using structured courses with clearly defined objectives.

If you are interested in Road Safety and enjoy both driving and meeting people, and in addition would like to run your own business then this could be the start of a new, worthwhile career.

All training is carried out from our premises at Kearsley, Bolton
