Stepping into the Shoes of a Driving Instructor
When you get out of your house each day provides something a lot different to your life when you're working as a driving instructor. You meet up with different people of all ages, backgrounds, cultures and skills. Some people be more eager to learn and want to take on the bigger challenges to driving while others will be more reserved and sit and think about learning. There's also a whole lot more to being a driving instructor than training, there are different ways you can teach and you have the business aspect to work on as well. The hours you work are what you make them. It really is under your control.
Absolutely no two learner drivers are the same, not only do they possess totally different personas and preferences to the way they prefer to learn but they're not all teenagers. A number of driving instructors purposely target an older generation of learner drivers or indeed those who have special needs.
How Much Does it Cost to be a Driving Instructor?
It actually depends upon the way you practice and if you go for a trainee licence, if you mismanage your education and learning you can actually spend £4k, but train to a really good program and you may bring that to some more sensible figure of £2k to £2.5k
We recommend that when training you take regular training sessions since you will remember more and forget much less, this is one of the biggest drains on expenditure.
