Before You Train

Before you Train

View Cert In Large WindowWhether you're new to the Driving Tuition Industry or you've already had some prior training, you'll want to make sure you're getting professional expert tuition and great value for money. If you are thinking of training to be a Driving Instructor, start by checking the requirements to make sure you are eligible before you train. Then, be assured that the ISM Instructor Training College will train you to the highest standard to get you prepared for the RSA ADI Exams. Approximately 85% of all Ireland’s Driving Instructors have trained through the ISM Instructor Training College. We’re even proud to have trained most of our competitors!

However, before you contact us please make sure you can meet the minimum requirements as set out by the RSA, which state that you must satisfy the Registrar that you are a person of good character and be able to obtain a tax clearance certificate.
Also, you must have held a full EU Driving Licence for at least two years before you start training and be able to pass the Garda vetting process.  This provides an extra layer of protection for young learner-drivers.
If you have any doubts about meeting these minimum requirements you can contact us at 01 864 1790 or the Road Safety Authority on 096 25000 for further advice.

*Be aware of some Driving Schools charging for “assessments”. Reputable Instructor Training Organisations consider this bad industry practice. Instructor Trainees are also to be advised to exercise extreme caution with “day-by-day” payment plans, where you are not told how much and how long your Instructor Training will take.
