If you would like to create a successful driving school business – or grow your existing business to a higher level – you’ll find that getting help from someone who knows what works will more than pay for itself – you just have to make the decision to find out a bit more!
I’m Lin Webb, 1nfluence Driver Training Ltd is my baby and I have personally trained many instructors, generally from scratch.
I’d like to think I’m very easy to chat with and I pride myself on making lessons, coaching and training fun!
My guess is that you’re looking for help and the good news is I help Driver Trainers. I can help you both with the technical AND the business side of what you do. This might include getting your diary under control, expanding your business, dealing with team issues, improving your instructional techniques and creating presentations………. to managing time better, delegating work and dealing with conflict and so much more!
This is where the value comes in – we don’t spend masses of time on theory that you then find difficult to implement or isn’t relevant to you and your business. You focus on what you need and get better by us working on your real issues.
We look at how and when you do what you do! Your mindset may need to be tweaked a little, so we discuss your beliefs, motivation and your most compelling goals.
I can help you no matter where you live. Most of my clients work with me face to face, but it is your choice and there’s no reason why it couldn’t be by phone or Skype.
Are you an ADI that could do with someone to:
- Help you achieve your specific, personal and business goals?

- Increasing your business knowledge and experience

Continuing Professional Development for Approved Driving Instructors
ADIs that want to progress and make a difference in this profession need to ensure that their instructional techniques and business skills develop well beyond the level of their successful Part 3 Exam.
1nfluence can help you with our wide range of subjects for CPD for Advanced Driving Instructors, which includes:
- Approved Driver Training
- Fleet Trainer Training
- Standards CheckTraining
- Coaching Skills
And if you’re looking for something specific and it is not listed, please contact me to discuss what you need.
As a fully qualified driving instructor you will need to be assessed by the DVSA on a regular basis to determine that you are still fit to instruct. I can offer two options for this training.
- Option 1 – One to one in-car training
- Option 2 – An observed lesson
I will help you decide which option is most appropriate for you, in order to have a successful outcome. The amount of training required will be assessed and agreed between us.
“Thanks to Lin, not only did I pass my Part 3 to qualify to become a driving instructor, I also achieved a grade 5 at my first check test. I’m sure this would not have been possible without the very professional and friendly approachable attitude that Lin has for all her trainees to succeed.”Helen Thorne
Driving Instructor Training
Being a driving instructor is an incredibly satisfying job, and one of the great advantages is that because you are self-employed, you can work the hours that you want (or need) to.
To become an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) you will need to have good business sense, communication skills, an ability to teach, patience and understanding. You will also need to be at least 21 years old and have held a full car driving licence for at least 3 years.
If you have ever been disqualified from driving or have got 6 or more penalty points on your driving licence, the ADI registrar can refuse your application because of your endorsements, however they will consider the details carefully when deciding.
If you are already registered as a driving instructor in another European Union (EU) country, you can apply to transfer your driving instructor registration to the Great Britain register.
You will need to do a bit of research before choosing your training provider though, they are not all the same!
Lin is confident she can provide the best service to our business users. With over 20 years experience, 1nfluence ADI Training is the best choice for you.
Prices for Driving Instructor Training are from £50 / hour depending on location
What people have said
“Lin’s approach to coaching really pays off and I would recommend anyone thinking about training to become an instructor to have a meeting with 1nfluence before making a final decision.
With a friendly attitude and pleasant environment for all aspects of the training, I passed, am now fully qualified and indeed part of the 1nfluence team.”
