Become A Driving Instructor

Why You Should Become A Driving Instructor

How we work in the Uk is changing, and the option to become a driving instructor is a great way to work with flexibility and work life balance.

As a qualified driving instructor you can work when you want to, have time off when you want to and fit work in around your family and commitments.

Becoming a driving instructor involves joining an existing franchise so you get the support and infrastructure that a national driving school can offer you.

You will need to pass your advanced driving test so you are a qualified instructor, equipped to teach new drivers how to learn to drive and learn the skills that they need to pass their driving test.

We all remember the day that we pass our driving test. It is a rite of passage, the first day of freedom, as long as you forget about the costs involved with buying, insuring and running your first car of course!

New Drivers

As a new driver you will only have 6 points available on your driving licence. This lasts for 24 months from when you pass, after which you become a fully licenced driver with 12 points available for indiscretions.

As a new driver, 6 points can rack up quickly if you aren’t careful. No Insurance = 6 points, 2 minor speeding offences = 6 points, 2 x bald tyres = 6 points. So you can soon have your new licence revoked. This isn’t the same as being banned. If your licence is revoked while you are still considered to be a new driver, then, much like snakes and ladders you slide down the snake, back to the beginning and will need to retake both parts of your driving test again in order to be able to legally drive.

Join one of the leading national driving schools in the UK. Bennetts Driving School train people to become driving instructors across the UK.

As a driving instructor you will teach your students everything that they need to do not only to pass their test but to keep their driving licence once they have it.

Change your life, become a driving instructor and take control of your career.
