Becoming a driving instructor is not easy, it requires a lot of studying and understanding of how to handle different situations and help people from all walks of life to become safe drivers for life.

To help with becoming a driving instructor you should read and understand the following eduactional materials:

The Highway Code

RoadCraft – The Police Drivers Handbook

The Driving Instructors Handbook

The Official DVSA guide to Driving – The Essential Skills 

Practical Teaching Skills for Driving Instructors

DT1 (Driving Test Examiners Guidance)

National standards for driver / rider training

This ultimately depends on the amount of hours you want to work, this could be anything from £25k to £75k this is a gross figure so requires deductions.

Instructors can only work when their students are available for lessons so you have to be flexible with your availability. For the higher end of these earning figures, be prepared to work 7 days a week and over 12 hours per day with travel time this could be out the house for 15 hours a day. 

The other area affected about being self employed, is that your working week may not be the same every week, for example one week you may have a full diary (to what you class as full) work 40 hours, the next week it could be 20 hours due to cancellations or your students unavailable to fit in your diary. 

In order to earn alot, you also have to be very good at your job, this means putting 110% into study and training to qualify, and continue to develop your skills with regular CPD courses.

As a Driving Instructor, you set your own working hours so this is possible, although between lessons there is travel time, this could be up to 30 minutes depending on how you work your diary.

This will also have an impact on what your take home pay is.  

In this industry as a driving instructor, you will be required to keep calm at all times and help find a solution that works for each individual student as not all students learn the same and have different levels of knowledge. 

As with any teaching role, you are in a position of responsbility and trust. This means that you must remain professional at all times, you cannot have any sexual relations with students regardless of their age. 

You must treat every student with respect regardless of their race, religion, sexuality, age etc.

A Driving School franchise is when you join a driving school to work under their driving school brand, this also provides you with work. Some driving school franchises may have a limit on how many students that may be supplied to you within a 12 month period.

There is usually a weekly / monthly charge to use a driving school brand with some schools also charging per student refferal. 

Our Franchise Fee is £65 per week – which is roughly around one 90 minute lesson.

Outgoings for a driving instructor could be a few things. 

Car lease – You may decide or require the need to lease a dual controlled vehicle.

Insurance

Fuel

Maintenance costs

Franchise Fee

This will depend on how many hours that you work on a week by week basis. 

The lessons rates that we charge are on an hourly basis.

£45 per hour for manual driving lessons

£45 per hour for automatic driving lessons
