    About Us

    I have been an Ex DVSA SE ADIExaminer (for L test & ADI & PDI) including part 2 and Standards Check in West London, for the last 6 years following a 20-year career in the Civil Service. Over those 6 years I have developed my teaching skills to achieve a higher than national average pass rate with my Instructors majority of them first time in my new private business Sapphire Driving Academy.

    I cover all West London and the surrounding areas and now concentrate solely on specialist ADI Drivers Training. My role now is as an on-road Specialist Driving Instructor trainer for the new national  ‘Safe and Considerate Driving ’ course for who desires to become a qualified Driving Instructor.

    As with other ADIs I have been through the rigorous Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checking system. Like many ADIs I deliver standard learner driver training at a very competitive price and with a high success rate.

    We have instructors in our team who are registered as Approved Instructors with West London County Councils, which means that you can receive expert tuition from my Academy and qualify for a substantial grant towards the cost of the PassPlus training (if you are a West London resident). We offer all this ADI driver training and Learner training in an automatic or Manual transmission car.

    I am happy to discuss bespoke training for any ADI driver, whether on a provisional or full licence level. Perhaps you would like a confidence builder for teaching skills.

    Lessons are a minimum of one hour. I am happy to do one and half hours or two hours to be mutually agreed. I would not recommend any one lesson exceeding two hours for the majority of pupils. Neither am I an advocate of very intensive training (“I want to start to learn and take my test in two weeks please”!) as it is simply not an effective way of teaching in my opinion. However if it is a requirement for the customer we have expert Instructors on our team that can provide this service known as an intensive crash course.

    You will find that our Instructors spend the majority of the lessons with you driving, rather than being parked up for lengthy periods having cosy chats! You get what you pay for – professional tuition from a professional instructor trainer.

    All lesson times and lengths, including any bespoke requests, will be discussed and tailored to suit your needs

    Client Testimonials

    BAHAR - ADI-Part 3

    If you want to become a driving instructor then don't look anywhere else. SAPPHIRE DRIVING ACADEMY is the place. I've been trained by national driving schools and all I can say is. I wasted my time and my money! Then I came across Nadia who's a ex dvsa examiner. I called her and said to her I've got a test date and it was literally in 2 days. But nothing is difficult for her. She prioritised me cancelled some of her lessons and prepared me for my part 3 😁 (PASSED 🎊) thank you Nadia!

    SIGI - ADI Passed

    When I was left with almost no hope that I could achieve my goal, a friend recommended to me Sapphire Driving Academy and I want to say a very big thank you to Sapphire driving Academy for helping me fulfil my dream and become a fully qualified driving instructor. There are no words that describe how amazing the team is! If you are looking for ADI/PDI trainers, then this is the right place to look. Once again Thank you Nadia!.

    SONIT - ADI-Part 3

    I couldn’t have done it without Nadia. She is 100% the best in the business without a doubt. Her knowledge in the field is extraordinary. She really taught me everything I needed to know and got me ready for my first attempt. I was so nervous that I would fail. But she didn’t give up on me. We were able to pass on my first attempt and I wouldn’t want anyone else to have taught me. Definitely worth the money. Thank you Sapphire Driving Academy 😇🙌🎊
