Many people continue dreaming of changing their career and improving their lifestyle and then one day find the opportunity has passed them by. The chance to be in control of your future and choose the days and hours you work is in your hands. Your opportunity is right now!

Becoming a driving instructor is achievable for most people if they have the will, the desire and the motivation. A part-time course, spread over several months under the guidance of an ORDIT instructor trainer, is the best way to qualify and move your working life in a new direction.

My name is Phil Hirst and I run Phil Hirst Instructor Training. I am also a co-director of Learn Driving UK driving school and head up the LDUK Instructor Training Team.

Am I an ORDIT-registered trainer?

Yes! I have been on the ORDIT register since its inception in 1998

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
