Hear from our success stories

After making my decision for a career change, I joined Cherry Driving School to complete my ADI training. They were so supportive throughout and made me feel part of the team. It is good to know that I have such a great supportive group behind me now as a fully qualified female instructor



Cherry ADI

Having done some research, the Cherry name really stood out. I gave them a call and we met up for a chat. We got on really well and all my questions regarding  becoming a PDI were answered.  The support I received was amazing. I passed and became a fully qualified ADI with Cherry, best decision I ever made. 



Cherry ADI

I was able to train around my full time job which helped a huge amount. My trainer was excellent at showing me what it takes and means to be a driving instructor. I would highly recommend Cherry Driving School if you’re thinking of embarking in a career to becoming an Approved Driving Instructor




Part 2 & 3 rescue

If you have been let down by your current trainer/training company, don’t worry all is not lost.

We have helped many a new instructor who handed over a large sum for training to a company who then badly let them down with the quality and quantity of training received. 

While we may not be able to recover lost training or test fees, but we can certainly turn your fortunes around.

We’ll ensure you’re not only ready for your part 2 &/or 3, but also for the role as ADI post qualification.

We would be happy to offer a place in our franchise if it was desired and help you build your new business thereafter.
