How Does Online Driving Instructor Training Work?


Everything You Need to Know About Learning Remotely

Are you looking to complete Part 3 of your driving instructor training? Then you will love our online driving instructor course. Here is everything you need to know about learning remotely, and what benefits it could offer you.

Who is the training for?

First of all, who is our online driving instructor training for? Our remote sessions are for those who have completed Part 2 of their training. To gain a trainee licence, you must complete 40 hours after you have passed Part 2. You can train online as part of your 40 hours, although a number of those 40 hours must be in the car. Most people aim to complete their training by passing within 6 months, which gives you time to fit in up to 3 attempts if necessary. In our experience, most trainees sit their first attempt after 3 months of learning. Many pass the first time – but everyone is different! That’s why we provide tailored support every step of the way.

What you will learn

So how is our online driving instructor training delivered? We have over 20 hours of training materials for you to take advantage of all of which will help to lay the foundation for your success as an instructor. During your virtual training, you will learn how to:

  • Structure a driving lesson
  • Deal with different learners and their needs
  • Tailor your teaching style to suit each pupil
  • Develop Q and A techniques
  • Teach different subjects
  • Watch the learner

How is the training delivered?

Our online driving instructor training is delivered in groups, so you will get to connect with other trainee driving instructors, comparing experiences, and learning from each other. We also recognise that some trainees really benefit from one-on-one sessions, which is why we also offer an additional 1:2:1 service. This includes our innovative virtual lessons. You will take a learner driver out for a lesson and film it – and then we will provide clear, honest feedback. Consider it something of a mock test! So, with a wide range of lesson styles available, you will be able to customise your training to suit your needs and learning style.

Training that fits around your schedule

One of the biggest reasons to take your driving instructor training online is the flexibility that it offers. Many of the trainee instructors that learn with us have busy lives, fitting in their learning around job and family commitments. Being able to log on and study when and where it suits you will make your training so much more accessible. Plus, our online learning is easy to understand, and support is provided as and when you need it. Whether you are an independent learner or require guidance, we’re here to help.

The nature of training to become a driving instructor is that you will need to gain practical experience in the car to develop your skills. Our online training is the perfect accompaniment to time in the car, whether you are taking on lots of pupils or starting off with a select few. To find out more about us and our remote training, please get in touch with our team today. We would love to answer any questions that you have and will give you all the information you need to proceed with total confidence.

I was taught by Geoff for about 2 months and I went to my test and passed the first time with this company and I would highly recommend Geoff and the company ad he teaches really well, he ensures that you end up being a driver and not a learner and i felt that is a really respectable quality when it comes to a teacher. I could not say any bad experience and was extremely happy

For any one wanting to learn to drive but not sure who to go with I definitely recommend Nayland, with his great help I passed first time and in just over three months, the lessons were great I always looked forward to them as Michael is a lovely guy and very down to earth, and up for a laugh 🙂 but he is also very patient for any one who is nervous about driving. 🙂

Harriet Osborn Davies

Thanks a lot to Dave, very calm and professional instructor. Passed after 20h, would definitely recommend.

I passed my test first time, I didn’t need to use any other instructor as Michael gave me all the advice I needed, down to earth, practical and easy to understand. While learning to drive can be stressful, Micheal made it so easy for me. I enjoyed learning and looked forward to the lessons as they were really enjoyable, if you want to learn to drive with someone that will make it enjoyable and practical Micheal is the guy! guy.

Before having Michael as a driving instructor I was with someone else! I was given his number through a recommendation, and his lessons gave me the confidence to pass my test! Michael has great prices and deals, to suit anyone! I have now been driving a year, and I have recommended many people to go with him and they have gone on to pass very fast! 🙂
