Driving Instructor Training

Everyone is different and brochures cannot answer your personal questions. So come and have a cup of tea and ask the questions you want to ask not what a brochure tells you. So if you are looking to embark on a career as a driving instructor, contact or visit Clearway and have your questions answered.

Become a Driving Instructor

Becoming a driving instructor could be one of the most satisfying things you ever do. As well as earning up to £36,000 a year gross, you will also have the flexibility to choose the hours you work.

It gives you the opportunity to run your own business and to regulate your life as you wish. It gives you the opportunity to earn a good income depending on how much you charge and how many lessons you do. Average lesson prices vary between £18.00 to £21.00; this depends on the area you work in, as lessons up North are normally cheaper than down South. There are no restrictions on how many hours a week you work apart from those you put upon yourself.

Clearway offers driver instructor training that can make your goal a reality, delivered to the standards laid down by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

A Guaranteed Job with Clearway

All you have to do is pass your Theory Test and your Practical Driving Test.

Course fees apply for driving instructor training but no qualifications are needed. In addition, you must have held a full manual licence for more than 4 years, and be able to read a licence plate at 23.5mtrs. Solve all your problems in one go!

Use our dedicated business plan for individuals, and your route to being a successful driving instructor can be a simple one.

If you are considering becoming a driving instructor, contact our head office in Middlesbrough and ask as many questions as you wish, or come along for a cup of tea and a chat, it only takes a phone call.

Course Prices

The structure for pricing individual training as a driving instructor can be arranged to suit each student depending on their needs and requirements, some students come to us already having passed Pt 1 and 2, and only require tuition on Pt 3, this means that they will only require certain elements of the course to be taught to them, bringing the cost of the course down dramatically.

So without knowing your individual needs it would be difficult to give an individual price for your requirements, to give you some idea of the costs involved there is a list below to help guide you.

  • Part 1 Theory/ hazard perception training: £450.00
  • Part 2 Driving / training: £850.00
  • Part 3 Teaching tuition: £1200.00

These prices come to £2500.00, if this figure is paid as a lump sum we will include the fee for one attempt at each of the tests, this figure is £312.00 take this away from £2500.00 you course fee would cost £2188.00

There are different types of payments that can be made such as putting down a deposit and paying the balance over a period of time, or indeed paying by the hour the fee for this is £30.00 for one hour of tuition or multiples off.

We understand the needs of most potential students and can be very accommodating.
