Driving Instructors Lessons
You can be assured, that our training team are dedicated to our trainees, throughout the training course and beyond.
Each individual trainee instructor, will be advised based on their own merits and circumstances, as a consequence you will always be able to make a more informed decision, you make the decisions. You choose how often you would like to train, if you would like to apply for a trainee licence and when you would like to begin teaching. You can even control your franchise fee - the more pupils you find for yourself, the lower your fees will be*.
Along with the School that you work with, we'll be your support. We'll give you all the backing and respect of an established training brand - and help you handle every one of your major business needs.
Dedicated start-up support
When you start with the Compass Instructor Training, you'll have a whole team of people behind you. We'll assign a dedicated adviser for your first few months and arrange meetings with your local trainer. You'll also be invited to meet the management team and past and present instructors so building up a support network where you can.
Our training materials are either on the DVSA's recommended reading list or have been produced especially for our trainees. Books, DVD'S and visual aids are available and a selection of these can be viewed on our product page.(link through to page)
For peace of mind, we are fully insured against Professional Indemnity and Public liability. This cover provides protection in the event of a breach of professional duty and legal liabilities.
Your training car
We will provide a modern, dual controlled training car throughout your period of training, this will be available for both the driving element and the Instructional training.
We'll take care of your car insurance for you so you can rest assured that whilst training in a vehicle you will be fully covered.
While you get established, you might want us to help provide pupils for you. Then as you establish your reputation, you can start to build the business independently.
Your driving school
We'll introduce you to established local driving schools that will best suit your requirements. We consider that you still deserve our support even after you have completed your training course. This may be whilst you are under a trainee licence or indeed have passed all of your qualifying examinations.
Once you've qualified as a driving instructor, you'll need a little time to adjust to a new career.
It may well be that you have a burning desire to start your own driving school or more than happy to be part of an established team. Either way, we will continue to offer new challenges and opportunities, such as advanced driver training.
Compass Instructor Training recognises that learning the art of teaching is only part of being a successful driving instructor. Therefore we are more than happy to provide on going career guidance with further skills training like diary management and lesson planning.
As a Driving Instructor you are required to pay tax and NI as a self employed worker. We would recommend that you seek the services of an accountancy service. To save your time and money, we have negotiated a special deal with a firm of accountants that have experience of helping driving instructors. Please ask for further details at your interview.
