Your Training Course with Phil Hirst Instructor Training
Phil Hirst and his team provide the training for prospective instructors wishing to qualify and work independently or with LDUK driving school.
You are not just buying a training package if you join Learn Driving UK – you are buying a new career, a new lifestyle, and the backing of a company with years of training and development experience.
Be assured of our personal attention always with absolutely no car sharing. Many training companies place two or three trainees per vehicle which means you may only receive a third of your training hours in the front passenger seat – where you need to be to give yourself the best chance of passing the Part Three test. All your tuition is in-car and on a one-to-one basis.
We guarantee a position in your chosen area with Learn Driving UK once qualified. You will benefit from full support and personal development when you really need it – during training and in your first year or two as an instructor.
