Driving Instructor Training

Caledonian Driving Instructor Training is a family-owned provider of ORDIT-approved driving instructor training programmes.

Quite simply, we love what we do.

Our goal is to provide people with all the required information and skills required to become self-employed driving instructors. Once qualified you can choose your own working hours, your preferred locations, and your own goals for your own business. You’ll be your own boss, and all the different career progression options within the road safety industry will be yours to explore.

We provide structured, accredited training courses designed to be delivered either on a residential, fast-track basis from our training centre just outside of Glasgow, or more bespoke one-to-one training in locations across the UK.

Our trainers are highly qualified coaches who all hold industry-flagship professional coaching qualifications.

Since 2007 we have successfully helped hundreds of new driving instructors to achieve their goals of financial stability and work/life balance.

We guarantee fully supported franchise positions to suitable applicants via our driving school, Caledonian LDT.


Potential Earnings

Full-time driving Instructors typically earn around £38k per year before costs. The vast majority are self-employed and many operate franchises in association with local and national driving schools. Calculate how much you could earn using this calculator.


Career Progression

The driver training industry has many options available to suitably qualified members. Choose to specialise in learner drivers, or continue your development post-qualification and get involved with training new instructors, or carrying out assessments for the corporate fleet market.

There are many opportunities to develop your skills post-qualification, and a good driving school or local association will be able to point you in the right direction. Continual professional development is important, and the best ADIs are the ones who invest in themselves.

Caledonian is a group member of the Approved Driving Instructors National Joint Council (ADINJC) and our Managing Director holds a seat on the Governing Committee.


Driving Instructor Training Reviews

“I can honestly recommend Caledonian DIT. I’m now a fully qualified instructor running my own Caledonian Franchise. I was trained by Mark Allan, who was trained by Stewart Lochrie – both very experienced instructors, helpful, and friendly. I would never have been able to become an instructor without the training, help and support from the team at Caledonian. If you want the best driving instructor training then definitely get in touch.” Tom Broadley, ADI
