I'm thinking of training to become a driving instructor...

Very new idea to me, but i'm thinking it could possibly work?

Just wondering if anyone else is an instructor and how many hours they work and how much they earn on average?

Also wondering if it is flexable and if it is easy to find work?

And finally how much is the training? Amd if you go through a company would they give you free or discounted training?

Hope to hear from you soon smile

I read somewhere driving instruction is competitive but otherwise don't know much. Hopefully you'll get some answers now I've bumped you though.

My uncle was a driving instructor until he retired about five years ago. He was working from 8 in the morning till 6 at night 6 days a week just to make it worth his while. Look into it very carefully. Depends on how much you want to earn I suppose. He was the breadwinner but if you're not I guess it could work around school hours!

Thank you for the replies.

Mrs Jason - I am a single parent, so I would say I def am the breadwinner grin

Don't do it. Too many around now so too much competition. People in the trade are struggling I'm told.
