It is widely assumed that all driving instructors, or driver trainers are the same. Sadly, as many companies have found out to their cost, this is not true. In most countries, all that is available is the qualification of a basic learner (student) instructor which is gained quite easily. There is no career beyond this such as advanced driving instructor or diploma in driving instruction or driver education. The UK has a stringent qualification process and both governing and accreditation bodies to maintain standards.
