Frequently Asked Questions

Please feel free to browse or selection of frequently asked questions below...

"Do you give student discounts?"

Yes we give 10% discounts on producing a student card  

"Do you do intensive course's?" 

Yes we can arrange an intensive course of driving tuition. Intensive courses need to be planned very carefully, beginning with an assessment to be able to calculate how many lessons you need then we book the test and plan the hours in towards that date. A test date can be arranged very quickly from numerous test centres within a 15 mile radius.

"Do you provide a mock test leading up to the driving test?" 

The mock  test is a vital helpful aid in preparing for your test and at Inspire we suggest all students have undergone a mock test to be able to highlight strengths and those areas which polishing up before going for test.

"Do you give a full hour tuition?"

At Inspire customer care is taken very seriously and something which  All of our Instructors pay particular attention to,we would always endeavour to be on time and would always give the full time paid for. A driving lesson begins when the pupil is in the driving seat and the lesson would finish on the hour and if necessary the Instructor would drive back on his own time if the pupil was not experienced enough to be able to drive themselves.

"Do you provide Automatic tuition?"

we have at Inspire one of the most experienced Automatic tuition specialist. We also cover mild disabilities.

"Have you got a good pass rate?"

At Inspire driving school we have an excellent pass rate, well above the national average. We have one the best reputations in the country for driving tuition. we are  very enthusiastic about our work and have in Dean Henson one of only a handful of Continued Professional Development Coaches in the country.CPD will, from 2012,  become compulsory for all Instructors to attend.

"What further development training do your staff undergo to maintain and further enhance their skills?"

As mentioned above CPD is something which Inspire and in particular Dean Henson have been promoting for years. With over 22 years of experience in driver training, Inspire has delivered CPD to over 5000 ADI to help enhance their skills, ranging from technical skills to customer care including being one of only 24 Fleet risk training providers and the only Accredited Fleet risk training provider in the North East.    

What can I realistically earn as an ADI?

This is a hugely important question with many answers.  In my 21 years as a driver trainer I have strived to be the best I can be.  I have continuously developed my skills which has afforded me many opportunities.  

Build a good reputation built on excellent customer care and pass rates, business skills and knowledge etc.  Taking all these and more factors into account there is a potential to earn well in excess of 24,000 per annum.

Is there much studying involved?

There is some study involved, however, this is simply refreshing the knowledge and skills you already have.  You will be coached and supported throughout your entire course.  You will see, when your training starts, that the majority of the coaching is made up of Q and A, and I will prove that you already have the knowledge and skills to succeed.

What are benefits of sitting in the back and observing training?

This is of huge benefit, as this reinforces the development which has taken place in the front seat, and even more so with Inspire, as this is at a reduced rate.  Most other training providers will, as part of their package, offer 40 hours in-car Part 3 training, however, 20 of these hours will be sat in the back of a car observing.  You should ensure that you are given 40 hours in the front.  For those of you who are already preparing for Part 3 you will know that feeling just before you get into the front seat for your turn!  "You only learn when you are on stage, not in the audience watching!"


Will all my ADI training be on a one-to-one basis?

At Inspire it is our strong belief that one-to-one training is the best way.  All your training will be on a one-to-one basis and any observation sessions, at present, will be at a reduced rate. 

Has Inspire got a good pass rate?

Inspire has one of the best pass rates in the industry.  Individual pass rates can be given on request.
