Frequently Asked Questions

Why are our training courses half the price of other companies I have seen / spoken with?
We choose to make our training courses as accessible as possible to those with aspirations to become successful Driving Instructors so that trainees can experience market-leading Driving Instructor Training (our trainers have over 100+ years of Driving Instructor Training experience) and excellent value for money. Bill Plant Driving School views its training courses as investments in people, with the majority of trainees who complete their training thereafter choosing to partner with us once they have qualified.
I work full-time, can I still train to become a Driving Instructor?
Of course you can! For all our course options, your Part 1 training can be conducted from the comfort of your own home, alongside professional guidance from our Training Support Team. For those on our Intensive Training course, you will only need to take 7 days (your 10 hours of Part 2 training is completed over 2 consecutive days, and once you’ve passed the exam, your Part 3 training can be completed over 5 consecutive days) to complete the in-car elements of the course. If you select our Regional Training, you can schedule all your in-car sessions at times and dates convenient to you.
Are there any other costs to becoming a Driving Instructor?
Any payments made to Bill Plant Driving School are for your training provided. For your licences (PDI and ADI) and test fees, these need to be paid directly to the DVSA, regardless of your training provider. The costs for these, correct at the time of print, are outlined in our free Driving Instructor Training Information Pack.
Will I need to provide my own vehicle for my Driving Instructor training and the exams?
The in-car aspects of your training will be conducted in the comfort and style of our market leading Volkswagen tuition vehicles. If you hold an automatic licence, you may undertake your Part 2 training in your own car. For your Part 2 and 3 exams, you may use either your own car, your Bill Plant Driving School tuition vehicle (for those on our PDI trainee licence) or rent one from us directly, providing you give us 2-weeks’ notice prior to your test date – meaning you’ll never be left in a panic!
