Invaluable Guidance For You

Here at Nayland Driving School we won’t just train you as a driving instructor, but we will also help you to set up your own driving school business. Like many schools we offer a franchise that helps you with most elements, but as well as that we will help you with all the other things you probably haven’t thought of, such as where to get a car, and installing dual controls and additional mirrors.

As a newly qualified driving instructor you will also be self-employed. Maybe you need help finding an accountant, or sheets to help you keep track of your finances. We have thought of everything, and are on hand to give you all the support you need as you make the change to working as a self-employed driving instructor. With our help, it will be a smooth and easy transition.

Personalised Training

With 40 hours of one on one training with one of our driving instructor training UK specialists, we can offer the tailored teaching that you need to succeed. We also offer the opportunity to call your trainer directly – outside of in-car training – to answer any questions, or clear up any problems, you may have. We want to ensure your comfort and enrich your understanding throughout your time with us. No two trainee instructors are the same, and we go out of our way to make sure that everyone’s unique needs are met, allowing them to gain their new qualification quickly.

Resources at Your Fingertips

We are proud to be able to offer our trainees the opportunity to study online, with hours of digital study material at your disposal. The training is divided into easily manageable sections allowing you to see, access and complete what you need to learn most. Utilising videos, online training resources, practical exercises and more, an enriched learning experience is ensured. You’ll have the ability to revisit this resource anytime throughout your training, making it invaluable. Having this extra content to draw on when you need it makes becoming a driving instructor with us so straightforward.

You’ll be provided with top teaching tools for you to use in the car as well as teaching apps for you and your pupils to learn from too.

After researching many different trainers and companies, I found Nayland Driving School. As soon as I met Michael his knowledge professionalism and personality shone through. I enjoyed every training session, Michael knew exactly how to get the best from me, and supported me every step of the way especially when taking my exams.

Keith Cole ADI

Geoff is a brilliant driving instructor! He's very patient and knowledgeable! I have learnt so much during our lessons and I would highly recommend him for ADI training.

Suzanne Death

I started with Michael as my first Trainer. He consistently showed up on time and offered great training for my Part 2. Very observant at my abilities and knew what to work on and involved me in decisions. He was very patient with me despite some poor choices on my part, but this led to discussions on how to improve. Looking forward to work with Michael as a qualified ADI one day.
