train to be a driving instructor with us

To become an Approved Driving Instructor, you need to take a series of examinations with the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency ( the government body who conduct the ‘learner tests’). As the DVSA only examine and do not train, we at L Plates will give you all of the training needed to pass the exams. 
Training is flexible, so to fit in around your current job and commitments and takes as long or as little time as you want it to. After qualifying, you will be in great demand, as there is currently a shortage of good driving instructors. At L Plates, we are currently operating a 4-12 week waiting list as demand for driving lessons is so high –

We can place you with a local or national driving school of your choice or even help you set up your own driving school, if that is what you decide.


Together Everyone Achieves More

We believe that learning to become a driving instructor is a joint effort between you and your trainer. To gain maximum value from every training session, you need to be part of an effective TEAM. At L Plates, we will plan training sessions to maximize your progress, and by planning yourself with the aid of your training materials, you can help accelerate your learning process. 
We all learn at different rates, some people will be able to complete the course within a few sessions, others take a lot more. The important thing is the quality of teaching.



Success Based Training

We operate Success Based Training, which means learning should be a completely enjoyable experience. We are committed to making the whole learning experience a positive one, that way the end result is only one of achievement.

We Will Train You To Be A Driving Instructor

Some instructor training organizations only train to a standard acceptable to just pass the tests. Although that might seem acceptable to some, we don't think it is. Although by passing the tests, you will indeed be a qualified driving instructor, you may not necessarily have the tools to teach real learners in the real world. We are committed to training you to a standard that not only will you pass with a high grade, but also be fully prepared to confidently work as a qualified driving instructor.



Jo Chapman - our principle trainer and Company Director of L Plates Driving School, has been training potential driving instructors for over 15 years. Her driving instructor training programme, is one of the best systems around, specially designed to meet all abilities and learning styles. Jo holds various training accolades and qualifications and has vast experience in teaching learners to advanced drivers alike, and is always happy to offer advice based on her own experiences.
Together with her team of highly experienced driving instructors, they will support and help you to reach your goal of becoming an Approved Driving Instructor.
