Become a Driving Instructor with Learn Driving UK in Leeds
Our driving instructor training course in Leeds can be carried out on a part-time basis over a 5 to 9-month period. Learn Driving UK, led by Principal ORDIT Driving Instructor Trainer, Phil Hirst, will guide you through the process step-by-step.
Once you have completed the part 1 theory test, (which we can provide an online e-learning course for you to follow, or a Study Guide) we prepare you to take the part 2 advanced driving test in Horsforth, Leeds. All practical training (driving and instructing) is taken in our vehicle on a 1:1 basis and is based in Horsforth, so that you become familiar with the area.
After the driving test, you gain teaching skills prior to teaching learner drivers to give you real life experience on the road. The part 3 instructing test completes the qualifying process after which you will be a fully qualified driving instructor working with Learn Driving UK in Leeds.

What is ORDIT?
ORDIT is the Official Register of Driving Instructor Training. It is administered by DVSA. DVSA is trying to raise the standards of driving instructor training and will only approve training from ORDIT trainers and organisations.
Not all driving instructor trainers are ORDIT-registered. They do not have to be as the ORDIT register is voluntary not mandatory, at present.
Why should you choose to train with an ORDIT-registered trainer?
To become ORDIT-registered, a trainer must:
- Sign to agree to be bound by the ORDIT Code of Practice covering the advertising and selling of instructor training services and customer care
- Have their training delivery assessed on a regular basis by DVSA and reach an extremely high standard
- Submit training logs and records for inspection
- Pay for this service (which is a voluntary scheme, at present)
- DVSA only recommend and promote trainers on the ORDIT register
Am I an ORDIT-registered trainer?
Yes! I have been on the ORDIT register since its inception in 1998
