Peter Ray - Driver & Instructor Trainer



I am pleased to have been on the voluntary official register of driving instructor training (ORDIT) since 2017. This basically means that I have had one of my training sessions observed by an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) Enforcement Examiner. As well as looking at the actual training session, the examiner also viewed my training logbook and training notes. Currently, every 4 years I will have one of my training sessions observed to make sure I make the grade required. I believe that you should never stop learning, so I too will make sure I undertake necessary training to keep up to date.

I offer training for those wishing to become an Approved Driving Instructor.  I also offer Standards Check training together with mentoring of those new to the role.

Before any actual training takes place I would recommend an informal no obligation meet up to discuss things.  This way I can find out exactly what you are looking for and it also gives you the chance to meet me.  You can then decide if you feel that we can work together and build a professional working relationship.

We would start with a meeting to discuss your plans. We can discuss all the aspects of training and I would also give you details of a recommended reading list.


This is the theory element, for this I will sign you up with our online training provider Theory Test Pro. This way you can learn at your own pace. Regular catch ups and meeting would take place during your theory training to make sure you stay on the right track.


This is the test of your driving ability and we would look to raise the standard of your driving.  We would do this in car, with training sessions developed and targeted to help you. We can use my training car or you can use your own vehicle.  This is something that we would discuss prior to the start of training. We keep notes of your progress in a training logbook.


This is where you are tested on your instructional ability and we would prepare in a variety of ways. We can start with some decisional based training in car and then move forward with you working with my Learner drivers.  I would observe these lessons and this way you get the chance to work with real learner drivers. We would then discuss your onward training and what would work best for you.   I have built up an extensive contact list of qualified ADI’s of whom you can observe, for a nominal fee; I call these ADI’s “mentors”. With these ADI mentors you have the chance to observe some lessons, then have the time to discuss the lesson afterwards.  We would keep notes of this in your log book.


ADI Training £43 per hour

Discounts are available on longer lessons or block booking payments.

Payments can be made directly into my business account,
