My name is David Musk and I have been a driving instructor for nine years, i have been Instructor training for five years and i am very proud of my pass rates and achievements in the business. To see a brand new qualified instructor start there new career really is a sense of achievement for me and the person i have trained. People of all ages and from all walks of life become a driving instructors.

The skills to become a driving instructor are many. You will spend the day teaching how to Move off and stop, deal with junctions, deal with pedestrians crossings and signals , use of speed ,dual carriageways maneuvers and of course teaching safety skills and highway code rules and regs. These skills must be developed by you using the correct teaching techniques.

Does it pay well?
Yes it does. As a fully qualified driving instructor you can earn �700 per week with ongoing training it can be a lot more. You may wish to teach fleet training or become a instructor trainer which all allows you to earn more money.

Many years ago families only had one car but now Mum, Dad , and the kids all have cars and that has put demand on more driving instructors to come into the business. So now is a great time to start your new career.
