In 1982 Pelican Driving School started teaching people to drive safely and then go on to pass their driving test. Pelican is a family business and is proud of the care and attention paid to the many drivers who pass their test with our fully qualified and patient instructors. It was always our aim to be one of the best driving schools in Barnsley, Rotherham and Sheffield.
In 1985 we decided to expand the driving school to cover all Barnsley, Rotherham and Sheffield and we set up our own Driving Instructor Training Establishment to provide the demand for new instructors. Initially with just two instructor trainers we trained hundreds of driving instructors in the South Yorkshire area, most still operating today, and the instructor training courses continue with Pelican Instructor Training being highly respected within the driver training industry. We were ORDIT (Official Register of Driving Instructor Trainers) registered from the start of the register, this register gave the public confidence that the training they received was of a high and consistent standard.
Our training establishment expanded to four top grade instructor trainers with additional qualifications such as the Diploma in Driving Instruction, a Degree in Driver Education and and two of the trainers being advanced driving examiners for Diamond Advanced Motorists. For several years we used our training establishment as an examination centre for the AEB (Associated Examination Board) examination for the Diploma in Driving Instruction run by the DIA (Driving Instructors Association)
