Why choose Bill Plant for your driving instructor training?
The Bill Plant Driving School is a family run business that was established in 1993 and operated at first just by Mr Plant. It quickly found itself rising to the top of its field, and in a very short space of time it has outgrown many of its competitors to become one of the largest driving schools in the UK.

How will you train with Bill Plant?
A driving instructor is not just a job, it is a vocation that offers years of extraordinary job satisfaction, alongside the chance to meet new people on a daily basis, and help change and improve their lives.
In order to train you must:
• Have had a full UK license for at least 4 years
• Have no more than 5 points on your license
• Not been banned from driving within the last 4 years
• Be a ‘fit and proper’ person (in the opinion of DSA)
• You must pass a DBS (Enhanced Level Disclosure and Barring Service) check - Formally known as a CRB Check.
The training course has 3 parts and you need to pass 3 tests in order to become a fully qualified and Approved Driving Instructor.
Part 1 – ADI Theory Test
This test is made up of 2 sections: Multiple choice and Hazard perception. You need to pass both sections before you can move onto Part 2.
We provide you with all of the materials to help your studies, along with 3 hours 1 to 1 mentoring with your own personal trainer to help with your studies.
Part 2 – ADI Driving Test
This is very similar to the current driving test for learners, but slightly longer and more robust. You need to pass part 2 before you can move onto part 3.
Your personal trainer will assess your current driving skills in order to tailor a detailed program of training to help you pass. You will receive at least 12 hours of 1 to 1 in-car training.
Part 3 – ADI Instructional Ability Test
2 half-hour driving lessons on subjects chosen by your examiner - he will play the role of a learner driver and assess your ability to teach by asking questions and making mistakes. You will receive a grade in this test – only grades 4 (adequate), 5 (good) or 6 (excellent) will result in official recognition of ADI.
Your personal trainer will act as the role of examiner and give you experience of different roles and teaching subjects. Each session is planned with lesson aims and constructive feedback. You will receive 40 hours of 1 to 1 in-car training to help you pass.
