Tim Richards

Being a driving instructor is a career I have considered a few times over the years. I have contacted some of the larger nationwide driving schools to enquire about their training programmes but have always felt like it's just about sales for them and the initial phone call is usually followed up by text messages and emails hounding you to join up before you miss out on the latest special offer they have.A few months ago I did some research in to local driving schools in the Hull area and found Elite. I saw that they were getting positive feedback from their customers and that they were looking for new instructors so I decided to give them a call. I ended up popping in to the office that same day and having a discussion about my suitability for the job, what the costs and potential earnings would be and what training I would have to undertake. I left feeling like I knew every I needed to know to make a well informed decision and after sleeping on it I told them I would like to go ahead.Elite provided me with an excellent package of training resources and assigned an Instructor Trainer to me. Under my Instructors expert guidance I have passed my part 1, 2 and 3 tests and am now working full time as a qualified ADI.Elite have always given me great support, there's always someone at the end of the phone if I need help or advice and I'm loving the flexibility of my new career and the satisfaction of helping pupils to gain a new life skill.

Hi, my name is Richard kingdom and I am a qualified ADI contracted to the Elite Driving School franchise in Hull.

I chose Elite Driving School, after comparing many others, due to their more personal and professional approach. I wasn’t wrong in my choice as they certainly lived up to their dedication to my progression and also friendly (almost homely) nature. The support is fantastic.

I first thought of becoming a driving instructor many years ago as I enjoy teaching people new skills. After many years in the manufacturing sector, I finally got the opportunity to train for and achieve this qualification. I must admit that it was more of a challenge than I was expecting.

The rewards have been worth the effort. I am now the master of my own destiny and for the first time in my career, I am in control. I meet new people every day and have a fresh challenge every hour.

There is nothing nicer than helping people achieve something they dream of doing and being able to enjoy it along the way. That sort of satisfaction is priceless.

Taking up this profession is something I should have done a long time ago, so my advice to anyone thinking about it is: Do it whist you have the opportunity. You won’t regret it!

I was hooked. I've met both Kev and Stuart from the training team and both guys were instantly likeable and put me at ease

 

"Having looked into the possibility of becoming a Driving Instructor in 2009, I made my first mistake.... I called the wrong people.

I didn't fall for the usual offers, promising the Earth that are maybe associated with larger national companies, but even though i did try to go for a local company with a fairly large profile, i soon became disillusioned. 

Meeting in a car park.

Sharing time with other people in the car as opposed to a one to one.

It just didn't feel right and i didn't feel i was getting the undivided attention that I personally need to progress quickly.

Lets be clear. If becoming a Driving Instructor was easy, we'd all do it and the roads would be full of instructors.

It's not.

 

But picking the right place to start can make it easier.

I saw an advert for Elite on the internet whilst looking for an instructor for a family member, and the "itch i didn't scratch" from 2009 came back.

I filled in an online form with my details and the first thing that impressed me was that i got a call from Kev within 30 minutes.

When i asked who Kev was, He told me he was the owner of Elite..... 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's who you want to deal with, whichever company you call..... The Owner!

Within a matter of days i was having a "Taster Session" so to speak with one of the Trainers at Elite. A kind of try before you buy if you will.

 

I was hooked. I've met Stuart from the training team and both guys were instantly likeable and put me at ease.

Since then, with support from Kev in the office, i passed my Part 1 with a score of 92% and have recently passed my Part 2, with Stuart with a near perfect drive.

I would add at this point, that the level at which i was trained was not just to scrape through the test.

It became apparent that Stuart had pushed me to the best i could be and before my test he was very calm, which rubbed off on me.

 

He's become a friend who I trust to get me the career i want and when he told me "you've got this test in the bag" before i was joined by the examiner, it gave me the confidence to relax and give it my best.

He was right!

 

I've got the right team behind me at Elite.

Pauline or Kev answer the phone when i call with what maybe "Daft" questions. The office door is always open.

And the guy sat next to me coaching me gives me confidence and we have a good laugh as well.

I cant wait to get started on the career I've wanted for so long. I wish I'd called Elite sooner".

 

Thank's guys.

I first started my training to become a driving instructor with an other company. During the time I was with them, I didn't get any support or help when I needed it. They promised me everything before I signed up once I handed over my money things very quickly changed. I felt like I was being passed from pillar to post, and my training was dragging on and on. I was on the verge of giving up and throwing months of work down the toilet.

I decided I needed to look elsewhere for training and was recommended to Elite by a few instructors I'd spoken to. I checked them out online and was impressed with the great reviews so I gave them a call. I spoke with Kevin and he was great. He was very honest and upfront with me from the very start. I new that this was the right company to go with for my training. So I dropped the company I was with. Kevin helped me get a part refund from my previous trainer and started my training with Elite.

Duncan was my trainer and he was fantastic. He gave me a time table for training and all the resources I needed, and was always available to talk to with if I had any concerns or I just needed a confidence boost.

He really did go the extra mile and always seemed so happy to help me. I could see a big difference in the way Duncan carried out my training from what I was used to from the other company I was with. 

Elite and Duncan had me ready to take my final part of the ADI qualifying process far sooner than I could  have hoped for, and as you can tell from my picture I passed.

Kevin had promissed me a position with ther driving school as soon as I qualified, and he stuck to his word. Within a few weeks I was driving a brand new Citroen DS3, and I had enough customers to get me started. I could have had a full diary immediately but I sat down with Kevin and he worked out a plan to bring me in to the job steadily, increasing my customers week by week.

But it doesn't stop there. Kevin has worked out an 8 month training agenda so that I can quickly develop my skills as an instructor, which has been a massive help so far. I'm lucky because I'm part of a team who cares about their instructors and customers alike.

Since I qualified I've spoken with many local instructors, and i'm 110% confident I chose the best driving school around. 

If you are thinking about becoming a driving instructor don't look anywhere else go with Elite instructor training. I would have never passed without Elite and Duncan's help. I just can't thank them enough so looking forward to my new career as an approved driving instructor with Elite Driving School.

Hi I'm Keith Wetherall 

I have been a driving instructor for 13 years; qualifying and operating a franchise with a large national company. Over recent years I had become disillusioned with the level of commitment to the local area by the company and the amount of business they were generating for me.
 
Through that period I had been aware of Elite and have always been impressed with the satisfaction shown by their franchisees. I heard that Elite were looking for more instructors at about the same time I decided it was time to move on. Following a discussion with a former colleague I contacted Kev at Elite. From there things moved rapidly and I began a franchise with them in March 2015.
 
From the first week my diary was filled with quality pupils and I have been kept busy ever since. Indeed I could easily have many more pupils if I had space in my diary. The office back up is very friendly, efficient but not obtrusive.
 
What impresses me most about Kev's approach is his commitment to us. He has his finger on the local pulse and consequently targets his marketing at the appropriate potential clients.
 
Most impressed so far!
 
 
Cheers Keith

Hi I'm Sarah Healey driving instructor with Elite Driving school

Since qualifying as an ADI in October 2010 I had been franchised to a large national driving school.  For the last 18 months I had progressively felt undervalued and irrelevant.  During that period I considered going solo or joining an alternative local company. 

Following several favourable chats with Elite driving instructors I decided to contact Kev for the low-down on his company. Kev's enthusiasm and passion plus Pauline's organisational skills shone through convincing that this was my way forward.

Whilst I was initially reluctant for Elite to manage my diary it has turned out to be an asset to my business.  Elite helps me make more effective use of my time as the supplied pupils are now in a more concentrated area. The company is excellent at generating good quality pupils who, on the whole, are committed to learning to drive.

Since joining Elite I feel less tired, more motivated and as a consequence am able to provide a better quality of instruction. Kev & Pauline's approachable and supportive manner lets me know that I am a respected member of the team. 

From Sarah Healey

 

'From chatting to Kev on the phone about Elite's training, I realised this is what I wanted to do'

"I found out about Elite Driving School by scrolling through Facebook one day, I signed up for the emails to follow Kevin's story about his experience as a driving instructor and his training. 

I found it interesting and it re-ignited my passion to become a driving instructor, as I had a bad experience 3 years before. 

From chatting to Kev on the phone about Elite's training, I realised this is what I wanted to do. 


I went into the office quite apprehensive, after a couple of minutes I relaxed and had a great time chatting about the training. 

I decided to book my training with Elite because Kev explained the training course I would be on, and how his team would help me achieve my goals. I also felt it was the best option from all the other training companies I have contacted. 

I’m a full time mum and as you can imagine I get very little free time for study and training. So Kev worked out a schedule that wouldn’t be too stressful for me.

I started training a few months ago and so far I’ve passed both part one and two exams at the first attempt and I’m now looking forward to the final exam and starting a new career as a driving instructor with Elite.

I can highly recommend Elite because they work around your availability, they’re always on hand with help and support, and their training system is easy to understand and learn".
