Online Package
Buy our Tri-Coaching Driving Instructor Training Online Package and train to be a driving instructor from the comfort of your own home, or work alongside a trainer. You will receive regular communications from us containing a wealth of information about how to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor on the DVSA Register of ADIs.

With links in the emails to videos, webinars and articles, as well as our TCIT Course Book with TCIT Record of Progress plus a whole set of publications and access to Part 1 preparation materials, you will have everything you need to train to be a driving instructor and pass the Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the qualifying examination with confidence and ease.

When you buy the product we will contact you to find out if you intend training on your own or will be working with a trainer.

You might find this Online package works well on its own if:
You are returning to the ADI profession
You need to re-qualify as an Approved Driving Instructor
You have a background in teaching or training
You have previously taken an ADI training course without completing the DVSA qualification process
You are very happy studying and learning on your own
In-Car Sessions
TCIT Online consists of twelve practical in-car driving instructor training sessions.

If you are working through the course on your own, you will be your own Trainer and self-evaluate the progress you are making. Evaluating your own progress and recognizing your strengths, limitations and development needs is key to being self-aware. This means you can set your own goals knowing exactly what it is you need to do in order to improve your driving skills and driving instructional techniques. The in-car sessions focus on your driving technique and help you develop this to beyond a DVSA Part 2 driving standard; your commentary driving skills; and your driving instructional techniques so that you understand all about lesson planning, levels of instruction, core competencies and feedback.

If you are working alongside a trainer, they will help you track and monitor your progress through the course, completing an evaluation form after each in-car session, thus triggering the next online materials.

Our *Webinars and videos within the Driving Instructor Training (TCIT) Online Package contain valuable information that covers a whole range of topics:

Communication and Feedback
We look at different learning styles and how to build rapport; different questioning techniques and the importance of asking effective questions; the use of feedback for personal development, and for the development of the student driver; different feedback techniques, such as eliciting feedback and the use of scaling. The overall focus is on client-centred learning techniques with a look at the theory and research that underpins and validates this approach.

Coaching Conversations and Goals for Driver Education
We focus on how to hold a coaching conversation in order to address the higher levels of the Goals for Driver Education (GDE) and how to develop thinking drivers. We use the GROW model to structure coaching conversations and essential coaching skills of Questions, Listening, Feedback, Rapport, and Intuition. The GDE framework sets out everything a driver needs to know and do in order to drive the car safely. It shows how the personality of the driver and the context of the journey impact on the choices and decisions the driver makes when dealing with traffic situations and controlling the vehicle.

DVSA National Standards
We look at the DVSA National Standards and show how they underpin the way we teach people to drive and the knowledge and information a driving instructor needs. The standards have a focus on client-centred learning and the new Standards Check that every driving instructor has to complete, assesses that the ADI is giving value for money and ensuring learning is taking place. Many driving instructors find the National Standards confusing and complicated. We help bring a dull topic to life and aim to leave you with a clear picture of what you need to know and do in order to address the standards and be an effective and successful driving instructor.

Driving Instructor Training (TCIT) Online – Cost
TCIT Online costs £600 (including VAT). This is payable in 3 x monthly instalments of £200. We will contact you to determine whether you are working through the package on your own or alongside a trainer. If you decide to train on your own, you will still be able to have training with a trainer at a charge.
