Why become a Driving Instructor?

If you love driving and are thinking of a career change why not consider becoming a driving instructor? You can work the hours that you choose, which is very useful if you have kids or older people that you care for, or any other commitments on your time. You have a great sense of achievement when one of your learners passes their test, it is a job with great job satisfaction. Another reason it’s a great job is that you meet a wide range of other people, you might think it’s all young people, but people can learn to drive at any stage of their life. It’s interesting to get to know people from all walks of life. So if you’re looking for a rewarding career, with great benefits and job satisfaction being a driving instructor could be the choice for you!

There is currently a shortage of driving instructors in the UK, so once you’ve passed your driving instructor training and exams you won’t be short of opportunities. You can work on your own, for a larger company, or talk to us about a franchise. Our franchises are good value as we manage the running of the business leaving you free to teach your learners. We’re also here to support you, if you’re newly qualified it’s useful to have someone experienced to ask when you need a little guidance.

How do you become a Driving Instructor?

We can teach you to be a driving instructor, first you need to not have any convictions (either driving or anything that would flag up on an enhanced background check). You have to pass the eyesight tests (you are allowed to wear glasses for these), and obviously have held a full UK driving licence for at least three years. You also need to be over 21 years old. If you know that you comply with all of these requirements and would like to learn the next thing you need to do is get in touch with us.

We will help you to apply to become a driving instructor, and will prepare you for the tests that you need to pass. We will teach you everything you need to know to pass first time, and also recommend some books you’ll need to read to refresh your theory knowledge. To become a driving instructor you need to pass three tests, parts 1, 2 and 3. We can guide you through this process, as we’ve got a great first time pass rate and plenty of experience teaching instructors.

You can complete your driving instructor training at your own pace, so learning also fits in with your lifestyle. If you’re looking for work, or in a job you don’t enjoy what’s stopping you from making the change? You’ll be sure of great teaching and support at every level, and will end up with a new skill, and a very rewarding career.
