What Flexibility Does Being A Driving Instructor Provide?


Are you looking for a career that offers you a great deal of freedom and flexibility? Then teaching people to drive could be the perfect job for you. It is a career where you get to call the shots completely, and it is also one of the most rewarding. At Nayland Driving School, we support driving instructors as they learn, and help them to establish themselves and secure a regular income on their terms.

Here is what you can expect when you work as a driving instructor, as well as where to find the best driving instructor training in your area.

Set Your Own Hours

The great thing about working as a driving instructor is that you get to choose your own working hours. If you want to fit in your work around taking your kids to school and picking them up later on, you will be able to do so with ease. Likewise, if you are busy during the day and would prefer to teach in the evenings, that is possible too. Your availability varies across the week? No problem! If your schedule does happen to change, then you will be able to arrange lessons to suit your new circumstances.

No Long Commute to Work

Nobody likes a long commute – and you can eliminate that completely if you work as a driving instructor. When your car is your office, your commute will consist of heading to wherever it is parked, and then your working day can begin! Having a non-existent commute means that you can be much more flexible when it comes to planning your workload, as you will not have to allow nearly as much time for you to travel to and from your workplace.

Earn What You Want To

Being a driving instructor means that you are totally in control of how much you earn. If you find that you are in need of some more cash, perhaps to deal with unexpected circumstances or in the run-up to an event like Christmas or a summer holiday, then you can take on more work. You will be able to earn exactly what you need to see you through the coming weeks or months, and continue to tailor your schedule to suit. Few other jobs give you such fine control over the money you bring home.

Time Off When You Need It

When you are working in an office, arranging time off can be tricky to say the least. You will often have to work around your colleagues and when they have time booked off, which means that you may not be able to secure the leave you want when you need it. Being your own boss means that you can dictate when you work. So if you need a few days off or a couple of weeks, you can arrange this with your pupils to make sure that everyone is happy.

So you will be able to obtain these without breaking the bank, paving the way to your future success.

While being a driving instructor is a career that is suitable for a wide range of people, you do need to meet a certain criteria before you can begin your driving instructor training. First of all, you will need to be over 21 years old. In addition to this, you need to have held a full UK driving licence for three years or more. The more general driving experience you have, the more you are going to be able to give your pupils. It is also preferable to have a clean licence. Here at Nayland Driving School, we welcome a variety of trainee instructors.

Working as a driving instructor offers you a great amount of control over how much you earn. If you work full time, you can secure a really healthy income through working as a driving instructor. Of course, how much you earn does depend on how many pupils you are able to secure. That is where we come in. If you complete your driving instructor training with us, you will be able to join our leading driving school. You will have access to one of the fastest growing pools of pupils in the UK, allowing you to start earning an impressive amount straight away. Contact us for more information!

I was taught by Geoff for about 2 months and I went to my test and passed the first time with this company and I would highly recommend Geoff and the company ad he teaches really well, he ensures that you end up being a driver and not a learner and i felt that is a really respectable quality when it comes to a teacher. I could not say any bad experience and was extremely happy

For any one wanting to learn to drive but not sure who to go with I definitely recommend Nayland, with his great help I passed first time and in just over three months, the lessons were great I always looked forward to them as Michael is a lovely guy and very down to earth, and up for a laugh 🙂 but he is also very patient for any one who is nervous about driving. 🙂

Harriet Osborn Davies

Thanks a lot to Dave, very calm and professional instructor. Passed after 20h, would definitely recommend.

Mikolaj Witkowski

I passed my test first time, I didn’t need to use any other instructor as Michael gave me all the advice I needed, down to earth, practical and easy to understand. While learning to drive can be stressful, Micheal made it so easy for me. I enjoyed learning and looked forward to the lessons as they were really enjoyable, if you want to learn to drive with someone that will make it enjoyable and practical Micheal is the guy! guy.

Before having Michael as a driving instructor I was with someone else! I was given his number through a recommendation, and his lessons gave me the confidence to pass my test! Michael has great prices and deals, to suit anyone! I have now been driving a year, and I have recommended many people to go with him and they have gone on to pass very fast! 🙂
