OUTSTANDING 1:1 TRAINING FROM A DVSA ORDIT REGISTERED TRAINER

What this life-changing move could lead to

  • Control of your life, your hours and your work-life balance;
  • The challenge of being your own boss and driving your own career;
  • The rewards of helping people gain a skill for life, and the prospect of earning £35,000 full-time or more.

Get started with the EasyPass Driver Instructor training programme in Newcastle covering all the North East, including Sunderland, Gateshead and Durham. Whatever your working background, our team of DVSA ORDIT registered grade A instructors will quickly get you up to speed to pass your ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) qualification.

Learn at your own pace thanks to our different options and flexible hours which adapt to each candidate’s circumstances. You can be ready in just two weeks with our Fast Track course, but you can also opt for courses of between 8 and 16 weeks, and make it either part-time or full-time.

Our courses provide one-to-one training and online theory exam training.

  • 20 hours Part 2 Driving Test Training
  • 40 hours Part 3 Instructional Ability Training
  • Full-time support, 7 days a week

You’re free to determine your own work pattern, but a full-time scenario could see you earning between £35,000 and £40,000 a year.

  • You Must Be Over 21;
  • Held your Driving Licence for more than 3 years;

Instructor Training Course Newcastle Easypass Driving School

Our Background

Our EasyPass team have been providing Driver Training for over 25 years. All of our trainers are Grade A ordit registered with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). We provide continual professional development (CPD) and advanced training and coaching for the driver training industry

What does the course involve?
To become a qualified DVSA Approved Driving Instructor, you have to pass the DVSA test which is in three parts.

PART 1 DRIVING THEORY

This is done at home using materials we provide. You’ll be tested on road procedure, traffic signs and signals, driving test and laws, and instructional techniques

Please see link for further information on this test https://www.gov.uk/adi-part-1-test

PART 2 DRIVING ABILITY

Practical driving sessions with one of our instructor trainers will bring your personal driving ability up to the high standard required by the DVSA. You will receive 20 hours Part 2 training on a 1-to-1 basis.

Please see link for further information on this test https://www.gov.uk/adi-part-2-test/what-happens-during-test

PART 3 INSTRUCTIONAL ABILITY

For this part you’ll receive 40 hours of 1-to-1 training, with your trainer providing you with the skills and underpinning knowledge to deliver a course of effective driving lessons.

After passing all three parts of the DVSA tests, you’ll be awarded a green badge that signifies you’re a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI)

Please see link for further information on this test https://www.gov.uk/adi-part-3-test

STANDARDS CHECK

Training Driving Instructors For Over 20 Years.

Have you received your standards check appointment from the DVSA Or have failed your test and are looking for some additional training to improve your grade? Here at EASYPASS DRIVING SCHOOL we have over 20 years experience in instructor training and development, Let us help you achieve that grade A Result

The approved driving instructor (ADI) standards check assesses your ability to teach pupils.

The ADI standards check has replaced the ADI check test.

You have to take at least one ADI standards check during each 4-year period that you’re registered as an ADI.

You have to take a standards check even if you don’t have a car or aren’t working as an ADI.

You can be removed from the ADI register if you don’t book or go to your standards check.

You can only take standards checks in English or Welsh.

What happens at the standards check

A Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency examiner will watch you give a normal driving lesson to your pupil.

The examiner will look for evidence that you meet the national standards for driver and rider training.

What you’ll be marked on

You’ll be marked on 17 areas of competence that are grouped into 3 categories:

  • lesson planning
  • • risk management
  • • teaching and learning skills

The 17 areas of competence are listed in the ADI standards check report form, which the examiner will fill in during your check.

You’ll get a score from 0 to 3 for each of the 17 competencies, which are added up to work out your grade.

After you give the lesson, the examiner will discuss your performance and give you your grade. This will take about 15 minutes.

You can take your trainer or mentor with you, but they can’t take part in the lesson.

The top 5 reasons where instructors fail

Our latest analysis shows the top 5 areas where instructors fail to demonstrate competence are where they haven’t:

  • adapted the lesson plan, when appropriate, to help the pupil work towards their learning goals
  • taught the lesson in a style suited to the pupil’s learning style and current ability
  • encouraged the pupil to analyse problems and take responsibility for their learning
  • given the pupil appropriate and timely feedback during the session
  • given enough feedback to help the pupil understand any potentially safety-critical incidents

Lesson planning

You need to show you can adapt your lesson plan, where appropriate, to help your pupil work towards their learning goals.

You shouldn’t stick to a planned lesson because the needs of your pupil might change throughout the lesson and it’s important you can adapt to that.

Teaching and learning strategies

You need to be able to show you can teach your pupil in a style that’s suited for them. This means using methods that work best for them. For example, when giving verbal directions, your pupil might find it easier if you referred to left and right as ‘my side’ or ‘your side’.

It’s important you give your pupil appropriate and timely feedback rather than giving it all at the end of the lesson. Having regular discussions throughout the lesson helps your pupil understand what they might have done wrong.

You should encourage your pupil to analyse problems and take responsibility for their own learning. For example, if your pupil forgot to check their blind spot before pulling out, you might:

  • ask them if they know what they did wrong
  • explain why they need to make sure they check their blind spots next time

Risk management

Another area instructors commonly fail on is not giving pupils enough feedback on any potentially dangerous situations.

As well as providing your pupil with timely and appropriate feedback, it’s important that if they make any serious or dangerous faults they know what they’ve done and why it’s dangerous.

It’s up to you to make sure they understand this, so they don’t make the same mistake again.

At the end of the test

At the end of the standards check your examiner will give you feedback about any areas where you need to develop. You can refer to the national standard for driver and rider training to help you understand what you could be doing differently.

If you fail the standards check, the examiner will recommend that you seek further development from an instructor trainer.

Your standards check result

You’ll get your grade, along with your completed standards check form at the end of your standards check.

Total score Grade Description

0-30 Fail Your performance is unsatisfactory

31-42 Grade B You’ll stay on the approved driving instructors (ADI) register

43-51 Grade A You have shown a high standard of instruction and you’ll stay on the ADI register

You’ll automatically fail if:

  • you get a score of 7 or less in the ‘risk management’ category
  • the examiner stops the lesson because you’ve put yourself or someone else in danger

If you fail the standards check

You’ll have up to 2 more attempts to pass the standards check.

If you fail 3 times:

  • you’ll be removed from the approved driving instructors (ADI) register
  • you’ll have to retake the ADI tests to join the ADI register again
