Become a ProScot Trained Driving Instructor
Training people is our passion and on average we train around one thousand learner drivers each year, 600 learner motorbike riders, and 500 Junior Learner drivers.
The high standard of training and service offered by our instructors and reputation of the school ensures a constantly high level of demand for our driving lessons.
As a result, we are currently looking for instructors from all over Scotland to join and expand the ProScot team.
Why Select ProScot as Your Driving Instructor Training Establishment?
We know that selecting the right training company and one that works with you and for you is essential in your success.
Our key to success is our dedication, determination (we want you to be successful as much as you do), the quality we deliver, our experience, and the great results we achieve with an overall Driving Instructor Training pass rate of 98% which is well above the national average of only 33%. We believe that makes the difference and is why ProScot Instructor Training stands out against our competitors.
At ProScot we take a hands on approach and we do not believe in classroom based training in large numbers, learning how to produce lesson plans and how to deliver instruction in theory, or by watching videos as training. The reality is watching videos and talking theory is no substitute for learning to drive a car, and becoming a driving instructor is no different. You need to get out in the car with your trainer while they create real life pupil situations for you to learn and to develop your instructional skills.
ProScot are also one of Scotland's premier ORDIT Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) Training Centres.
ORDIT stands for "Official Register of Driving Instructor Trainers", and only driving training establishments who meet the strict assessment criteria carried out by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) qualify to be included on the register.
Our Training Instructors, John and Graeme, are amongst the most highly qualified around with over 30 years of driving instructing and training experience between them. All are Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency ORDIT Trainers which means they are on the Official Register of Driving Instructor Trainers and approved to train Part 1, 2 & 3 of the qualifying exams to become a driving instructor.
Becoming an Instructor - have I got what it takes?
There are a number of qualities and skills we look for in people who we believe can become great ProScot Approved Driving Instructors (ADI) and have a lasting career. The focus is all on the right person with the right personality and characteristics, someone with a positive attitude who matches the characteristics that we know a great instructor has. We provide you with all of the skills and tools you need to help you through our training programme and build up your experience as you are learning.
In reality you don't have to be a rocket scientist, but someone who really cares about giving your all to a student to help them to achieve their goal of passing their driving test and becoming a competent driver. Our students come from every walk of life, and whether they are 17 or older, passing their test can be one of life's great achievements and successes. It's up to you to make that happen and the rewards and satisfaction you get from that are fantastic. Everyone remembers their driving instructor!
Becoming an Instructor - how do I train?
At ProScot we offer a flexible approach to training to fit a Potential Driving Instructor's (PDI) ability and circumstances as we know everyone is different. Our most popular training courses are the semi-intensive and intensive courses, which ultimately mean you complete training and reach your goal of becoming an Approved Driving Instructor more quickly.
Training is more concentrated and stays fresh in your mind. Coincidently, PDIs on these courses usually complete training within 6 months from start to finish and have a better pass rate. This is the approach we would recommend to anyone considering joining ProScot for training.
After training and qualifying, there are exciting career and business opportunities available to you. In our opinion, the main options available to a newly qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) are:
- Become a sole trader and start up your own school
- Join another franchise
- Join ProScot and become part of our team

Exciting driving instructor career and business opportunities from Fife driving school ProScot
Teaching someone to drive requires many skills - skills which are provided by ProScot's ADI training programme. Our ADI course offers one of the most comprehensive training programs around, with an overall pass rate of 98%, which is well above the national average of only 33%. Our driving school is only as good as the instructors we train.
Our ADI Course is very flexible and can be fitted in around work commitments, with the choice of fast track, semi-intensive, intensive in two, three or four hour lessons, as well as our pay-as-you-train option. Training methods include bespoke one-to-one and observed (rear seat).
To qualify as a driving instructor, potential driving instructors (PDI's) must pass three tests covering theory, driving ability and instructional ability. ProScot's highly-qualified and experienced ADI trainers, John Macdonald and Graeme Street, will use their skills and experience to help ensure that not only do you pass the qualifying exams but that you become a successful driving instructor.
Once qualified, ProScot can offer you a career in the area of your choice. As well as a stunning ProScot liveried car and corporate clothing - and a steady supply of students - driving instructors with a ProScot franchise are provided with full office support, further training and opportunities for continual professional development.

This not only confirms our commitment to the continual training and development of all our staff but also ensures that the highest standards of service are maintained at all times.
