Driving Instructor Training Costs

As a self-employed franchisee you will pay for your training up front. Our self-employed package costs £2500.
On our Full-Time Employed package we do not charge for your training. Over the years I’ve seen many great candidates not be able to take on a role they would be great at because of the large start-up costs.

We take all that away! As long as you join our team at the end of your training you will not be charged a penny.


You will receive the same expert training for as long as you need it, we want you to be the best you can be so you can go out and represent us out on the road.
