We will provide you with the tools necessary to get started in the world of driving instruction. There’s plenty to learn - the theory, how to operate the test vehicle, how to teach others, what kinds of skills and processes you need to be able to explain, etc.
 
Thankfully, we have a comprehensive curriculum for trainee driving instructors, which will give you the skills that you need to thrive in the profession. We know how important it is for instructors to be confident enough to teach people, which is what we aspire to provide. 



Lots of Benefits

There are quite a few different benefits to learning to be a driving instructor. For example, you become your own boss. You are free to take on as many or as few students as you wish, on a time schedule that works for you. You can meet new people, see some more of your local area, and make a difference to young peoples lives. Oh, and did we mention that you could make up to £30,000 a year? 
 
A lot of people who become driving instructors aren’t doing it for the money. They’re doing it for the sense of satisfaction that comes from it. Guiding a learner to driving confidence is a very rewarding task. When you take the time to push them past their limits and give students access to the skills they need to thrive, you feel pretty good afterwards. Teaching has always been one of the most rewarding professions out there.
