Let’s face it, are things actually going to get better? Is waiting for a change of management really the best tactic to get the job satisfaction you’re looking for? Are conditions actually going to change to make work exciting again? Are you certain you’ll get that pay-rise you deserve?

The vast majority of driving instructors out there were in your position once. It’s time to take your life back into your own hands.

Nothing frustrates us more than hearing people talk about their ‘dream job.’

I had toyed with the idea of becoming a driving instructor for a few years, being my own boss really appealed to me.

The fact I can pick and choose my hours and what days I work, works great around having a family. It means I never have to miss school plays or sports matches, I can do the school runs and take holiday time when the kids are off school.I count myself very lucky to spend my days in a job I adore 🥰

💬 Louise Nicholas ADI, St. Ives

I became an instructor because I was totally fed up with the pub restaurant trade. It was long hours, lots of aggravation, never any real time to myself no quality of life. Now I can come and go as I please (within reason!), if I need time with partner or family then I can rearrange my diary to suit.  It also means that i now get quality time with my partner and family at Christmas whereas before I was too shattered to enjoy it.  This is especially important to me now that my parents are much older.

💬 Vince Miner ADI, Bristol

Being a driving instructor has made me a feel more secure. I still enjoy doing it on the side of my full time job, however if were to ever be out of work I would be able to fall back on this to continue earning. And although it can be pretty intense driving on top of a full time job, I like to see my students progress and the extra income flow.

💬 Mark Newmeir ADI, Southampton

Working for employers never really suited me. I like to be able to manage my own time and have time for other commitments.

I also enjoy the freedom to develop new skills. Driving instruction can benefit your health too – when I became an ADI I went for 6 years without a single day off sick!

💬 Anthony Wharton ADI, Southampton
