I would like start by saying that if anyone is looking to start training as a driving instructor then look no further because you've found your trainer... Richard has been my saviour over this past year with endless support, coaching, dedication and belief that I could pass my part 3.
A lot of it was down to my lack of self belief which upon reflection I just needed to sit back and look at my success with my pupils. I became very head strong and nothing was going to stop me. The money I spent was well worth it and never thought otherwise as the buzz and motivation whilst training with Richard was everything I needed. I know if any advice I need now that Richard is only a phone call away.
When I decided to train to become a driving instructor, Acclaim stood out from the rest. After speaking to Heidi, who answered all of my questions, I started the training process. Richard has been my instructor since the start, and I don’t believe I could of had a better instructor to help teach me. He has been incredibly supportive and encouraging, and I am very thankful for all he has done. Also, all of the office staff have been very welcoming and helping and I feel a valued member of the team.
The training I received from Acclaim was highly informative and up to date. My instructor, Richard, due to his vast experience and knowledge taught me all the essential skills needed to be a good driving instructor. I would highly recommend Acclaim's driving instructor programme to anyone looking for a good value for money, high quality and well structured course to help launch a new career path.
After looking at a number of different driving schools, I choose Acclaim as I wanted more of a family feel rather than just being a number with a larger company. This was important to me and I felt very supported from day one.
The training program felt right, and although I'd completed the Part 1 Exam, myself Acclaim wasted no time in getting me started. My Trainer was Jim Lancaster who was very experienced and has been an instructor since 1998. Jim was reliable, friendly and had a calming structure to his teaching. This was perfect for me.
I was given a car and worked on a trainee license while I completed my final training. A combination of in car training, classroom days and general support from the Acclaim team helped me reach my goal of being an approved driving instructor.
The whole process took me just over a year. I now work full time for Acclaim and I'm very happy.
I would definitely recommend Acclaim to anyone thinking of embarking on this career.
I decided to change career so my friend recommended me to approach Acclaim Driving School.
I have been delighted with my choice, I have tremendous support from them and their professionalism is terrific. When I have questions or need help, I have been able to give them a telephone call or visit their company office my issues are promptly resolved. I have had fabulous enjoyment meeting pupils every day and seeing how they have developed as drivers.
I would take this time to give my credit to my trainers Paul Chopra and Richard Barton, their great experience and knowledge has helped me in my training.
