Here’s Why TCIT is Different...

We provide you with the tools to help you develop and discover your own style and approach to deliver unique, goal focused driver training.

Most driving instructor training will keep you focused on 3 separate tests. Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

With Inspire Driver Training and TCIT all three of these are covered holistically meaning your knowledge base is 100% up to date and effective.

Inspire Driver Training & The Tri-Coaching Partnership’s TCIT Programme.

There have been huge changes within the driver and driving instructor training industry with huge emphasis on creating ‘thinking drivers’. 

Client Centred Learning (CCL) has become the very backbone of training the new generations of drivers. Sadly though, the Instructor Training industry has lagged behind a little and can be very ‘fault focused’.

The Tri- Coaching Partnership has been leading the way in facilitating change for driving instructors and driving instructor trainers with CPD programmes and qualifications based on modern coaching and CCL methods to ensure that the new generation of instructors are ready to train the next generation of drivers. 

Working together with Tri-Coaching, Inspire Driver Training can offer you the TCIT (Tri-Coaching Instructor Training) Course. A complete course that offers you.

TCIT puts you in control of your training and your budget. The cost of the full course starts from as little as £600.00 including the necessary supporting books and online resources. Choosing TCIT also means your training will NOT be held up by waiting for test dates before you can progress through the course!

You will receive:

  • TCIT Record of Progress.

  • TCIT Course Book.

  • The DVSA National Driver & Rider Training Standards.

  • Practical Teaching Skills For Driving Instructors.

  • The Driving Instructors Handbook.

  • The Highway Code.

  • Driving - The Essential Skills. 

  • Know Your Traffic Signs.

  • Driving Test Success Online.

The TCIT course is designed in such a way that you will be able to fit it in with your other commitments. 

You will have full access to the TCIT Course Online Package, which contains links that take you to the webinars that detail what you need to do to prepare for your in-car sessions.

The webinars contain a wealth of information about the 'bigger picture' of being a driving instructor, such as, the Goals for Driver Education, learning theories and models of behavioural change, coaching and client-centred learning techniques and the DVSA National Standards.

You will be able to track and monitor your progress through the in-car sessions with action plans and marking sheets in the (TCIT) driving instructor training course book.

The course length depends on how much time you are able to devote to it.

The content of the course has been developed so that you will understand what is involved in becoming a good driving instructor. This insight will then enable you to go and complete the three parts to the qualifying examination. The course focuses on the National Standards from the DVSA and, in particular, the DVSA National Driver and Rider Training Standard, which sets out the competences you will need to demonstrate in order to be a driving instructor.

In the same way, you will be placing a far greater emphasis on safe driving for life than getting through a driving test when teaching your pupils to drive, focusing on developing your skills as a driving instructor rather than teaching you to pass a test.

The Part 3 test of instructional ability is notoriously difficult but often this is because all the focus of the training has been narrowly targeted at the ADI Part 3 pre-set test combinations.

We focus on a whole breadth and range of skills and techniques and develop your understanding of when to use and apply them, so that when you go for your ADI part 3 test it is like sitting in an interview and showing off your skills. 

There are thirteen modules in the TCIT product. Twelve modules prepare you to become a driving instructor and Module 13 focuses on preparing you to pass the Part 3 test. 

During the In-Car Sessions you will be working with Action Plans and Marking Sheets, completing exercises, and referring to the DVSA National Standards.

Each Module focuses on:

  • Developing your theoretical knowledge and understanding of driver training

  • Developing your practical driving skills in relationship to driver training

  • Developing your training techniques


Each in-car session lasts for 3 hours and  takes one or two of the driver training competences and helps you understand how to address these.

There are seventeen driver training competences in the DVSA Standards Check and the Part 3, taken from the DVSA National Driver Training Standard and revolving around:

  • Lesson Planning

  • Risk Management

  • Teaching and Learning Strategies

In-car sessions will develop your understanding of how to adapt the way you teach to suit the ability and needs of the learner driver by looking at Beginner, Partly Trained, Trained pupils and Full Licence Holders (FLH). Having a high level of subject knowledge is important so modules will focus on the various teaching topics you need to be able to deliver. This will also help develop your understanding of how to make the best use of your practice areas.

Trainee Licence
If you wish to take on a Trainee Licence you must have a trainer and you will need to complete 40 hours of training around specific areas with a trainer. Follow this link to the government website to find out more on the conditions to be granted a Trainee License.

The Course covers the mandatory training that needs to be delivered to satisfy the conditions of your trainee licence.

On a Trainee Licence, you will need to cover a further 20 hours of supervision, training, and development. Module 13 of the Course covers this.

The Record of Progress at the front of the Course Book contains a Progress Details form, which will keep a record of the sessions you have completed. Your Trainer will be able to refer to this when completing your declaration to the DVSA for your Trainee Licence.

You can then choose from creating your own business; working with a local driving school or taking out a franchise with us or from one of the big national franchises.
