Why our Training is In-Car Versus Classroom


Bill Plant Driving School offers 52 hours of expert in-car training (10 hours Part 2 & 42 hours Part 3) as the key component of its Driving Instructor Training. Unlike our competitors, we believe in the philosophy of teaching by doing. You wouldn’t teach a student how to drive in a classroom and would instead want them to gain as much practical understanding as possible, so why should our Driving Instructor Training be any different!

Learning with an instructor in-car means for a far more focused and organised learning environment, where your instructor’s provision of attention is directed entirely towards developing your personal skillset as opposed to offering general guidance to a class of up to 30 people.
