Why Choose Us? We have an advantage the nationals will never have, we live and operate on your doorstep and to us you are a real person not just a number!

Train on Your Doorstep around Your Current Work Commitments and Benefit from Unique Local Knowledge that will be invaluable when You start Working in the Local Area.

Benefit from True Family Values that have been the backbone of the driving school’s success since 2009.

“I’m Ben and I am immensely proud to have built U Drive Driver Training from scratch, starting as single operator back in 2009 to where we currently teach in excess of 120 Local students per week”.
The business has been built by supplying quality instruction to both our learner driver customers and the general public who have trained with us, many of whom still work at the driving school as instructors.

The Ultimate Training Course” In the Warrington, St Helens, Widnes, and Runcorn Areas.

The Ultimate Training course has been constantly tweaked and tested and is specifically designed to suit YOUR requirements not ours.

Many of our competitors assemble their courses to maximise their return and often squeeze up to three trainees to a single training vehicle and then hope their trainer can cope with all three at once. (Just one of the hidden costs of cheap training)

Just think about that for a second!

You will be dividing your valuable training time by three.

We offer a personal 1-1 service throughout the course and I will be with you every step of the way from your first assessment drive right through to the day when you qualify.

You will receive help and assistance at every step of the qualifying process and we will remain on hand with career guidance, business advice and personal development once you have become a fully Qualified driving instructor.

Our ADI training Courses are part time and follow a highly successful training structure. There is plenty of flexibility built in so that training can be arranged around your current commitments, this way you can work at your own pace.

Driving instructor training is most affective when carried out at regular intervals for short periods of time (2 -4 hours). This keeps you in frequent contact with me your personal trainer, constantly motivated and allows adequate time for your home study between training sessions.

Hi i’m Ben Lander and I am the proprietor of U Drive Driver Training, I am also head of the instructor training program here at U Drive.

I am also responsible for for the in-house development of our fully qualified franchised instructors,

I feel this is an extra benefit as I get to know all our franchised instructors and trainees on a much more personal level.
I’ve been a driving instructor now for 10 years and gained invaluable experience teaching learner drivers and have completed a rigorous 50 hour, train the trainer course.
“I just would like to say big thank you Ben, for all your help and support over the last few months whilst I was completing my ADI course.

From the very first phone call you were courteous, helpful and very knowledgeable, you alleviated all my fears of which school to choose to train with, with a choice of going with the big companies or using a smaller more local company that came across as caring and wanted to make a difference.  When we met you put me at easy and nothing was too much trouble. You adjusted your diary to suit my needs working weekends initially whilst I completed my part 2.

I joined the franchisee on a trainee licence and it was the best thing that I did. Incorporating the ADI training and being able to practice my new skills on new pupils and knowing that if I had any issues that you were just a phone call away.

Ben’s teaching methods were simple, easy to understand and fluent to meet the PSTs. He gave me support and confidence throughout my training and nothing was too much trouble even when I struggled to get the hang of certain techniques.

He demonstrated good understanding, patience, clarity and knowledge of all the key subjects, he was able to address my training needs throughout. He’s fantastic instructor! 

Could I have done it without the training I had?  No, I don’t think so!

Would I have passed my part 3 today without him, No!

Ben has given me confidence. Built up my self-esteem and believed in my ability to coach students using a client centred approach and the use of PSTs. Nothing was too much trouble.

Would I recommend Ben for ADI training the answer would be a categorically YES… Without hesitation.

The Big firms can’t give you the personal touch, the 1 to 1 instruction Ben can and does. This matters…
Bigger isn’t always better. I can vouch for this. 
U Drive instructor training is the way forward for the personal touch.”
Thank you Ben, I am indebted to you.
Anna Hobbs, Warrington.

“I trained at two different schools before discovering U Drive. I had paid a huge amount for training that was of little benefit to me.

I was also paying franchise fees but the company only found me 3 pupils in 6 months.

I knew if I didn’t find someone else to train me I would fail my final exam and all that money and time would be wasted.

Thankfully I found Ben Lander who immediately made things clear. He quickly identified my weaknesses and demonstrated ways to improve”.

“I can highly recommend U-Drive Driver Training if you’re looking to become a driving instructor or need help and advise with a Standards Check looming.

I was struggling to qualify having failed two attempts at part 3, when I contacted Ben. He straightened out my thinking, keeping everything simple. What I previously did not comprehend, he explained in a very concise, clear and understandable way. He inspired me to greater confidence and I began to believe that I could be successful.
I passed my third attempt at the part 3 exam just recently! Now I’m excited to be working with Ben as part of his driving school.”
John Atkinson-Brown ADI.
“I was a HGV driver for 20 years. When I was looking for a career change I looked for a company that is as professional as I am. U-Drive was perfect, as soon as I met Ben I could tell he was honest and going to be reliable. All the information he gave me about becoming a Driving Instructor was clear and easy to understand. The training I did with Ben was fantastic, explained in great detail.
I am now a fully qualified ADI and that’s all thanks to U-Drive and Ben Lander.”
Peter Stringfellow, Warrington.

“I made the decision to become my own boss and be rewarded for my efforts. The decision has proved to be life changing and it’s without doubt, one of the best decisions that I have ever made.

Do I have any regrets?

Yes, I wish I hadn’t wasted several year’s of my life that are now irreplaceable”.
