become a driving instructor

Could becoming a Driving Instructor be the Career change you’ve always wanted?


Are you are interested in the benefits of controlling your work-life balance, being able to spend more time with family and friends, becoming your own boss and working the hours that suit you, in an area that suits you?

Could You Earn £30k a year?

Here’s how,


Lets start with a typical working day,


First lesson 9am-11am

Second lesson 11.30am- 1.30pm

Lunch 1.30pm – 2.30pm

Third lesson 2.30pm- 4.30pm


Assuming you are working 5 days a week, this will give you a weekly sales income of £900 (Monthly £3600)

Adding an evening lesson 5pm-7pm to this could increase this a further £300 per week.


This can be Monday – Friday or you may want to take a week day off and work Saturday or Sunday.


The beauty of being a Driving Instructor is it’s your choice and you can make it fit your circumstances.


Lets assume you choose to work a 30 hour week.

No Long Term Contracts
Don’t get caught out by long term contracts!


We don’t ask you to lock into a long-term contract. The main reason for this is we believe we offer a great service and that we don’t need to force you to stay because we hope you will want to stay within our team.

Some schools will offer you discount training but lock you into a 2-year contract with no guarantees of work. This has caused many a new driving instructor issues and is not a great way to start a new career.

We are upfront from the start with no hidden costs and no long-term contracts. Our aim is for you to be successful, so you want to stay, not trap you so must stay.

Training to become a Driving Instructor is a big commitment that offers you a new career that can bring a life time of job satisifcation. Investing in your future and setting you up in a stable career  is money well spent.

So what about for a Driving Instructor with the potential salary of between £20,000 and £30,000? What would it cost to train for a career like that? I’d guess maybe £10,000, No?
