Why becoming a Driving Instructor is a good option for part-time and full-time income

By Maddison

Changing careers can be a daunting experience but well worth it, we believe becoming a driving instructor is one of the best decisions you can make and is one of the most rewarding careers. 

We have put together a list of reasons as to why becoming a driving instructor whether it be part-time or full-time is a great idea:

1. Constant Demand

Driving Instructors are constantly in high demand. No matter where you are located, constantly teenagers, Newcomers to the country and older people who never got their licence as a teenager will be lining up to take driving lessons so whether you decide to work part-time or Full-time you will be in high demand.

2. The Freedom to Work for Yourself

The most popular perk for becoming a driving instructor is the freedom to work for yourself! Whether you would like to work for an already established driving school or you want to start your own, the choice is now yours! You now can set your own hours to suit your lifestyle. The added bonus of this is if you are nervous about jumping in the deep end and becoming a driving instructor you can still work another job whilst you are getting started and set your hours around your work schedule.

3. Never Miss Out

With being a driving instructor, whether Full-time or Part-time you will never have to miss a Family event, holiday or party again the reason for this is you simply get to choose and block out the hours and days you have something scheduled. 

4. Financial Gain

Now let's get to the main reason you are reading.

The average salary for a driving instructor is between $80,000 - $100,000 a year. Which is a very good potential income for those looking to set their own hours. 

Another great thing about being a driving instructor is that you may be eligible to claim tax on vehicles if you use your own car for lessons, then you can possibly file for business expenses on gas and maintenance.
