The Driving Instructor

The demand for driving instructor jobs is as high as ever, with earnings as much as £600 a week now is the time to become a driving instructor with Compass and make an impact in your local community by teaching others to achieve high driving standards. 

It takes commitment and hard work to become a driving instructor. 

learner_driver_in_Basildon Like all careers, the more you put in the more you will get out of your chosen career. 

Driving instructors find a renewed job satisfaction as no two days are the same.  You'll be meeting different personalities and situations on a daily basis, which requires good people skills and a lot of patience and understanding. 

Compass driving instructor training can be as flexible as you need it to be to accommodate your current job or family commitments. 

Are you qualified?

The career suits men and women of all ages (over 21), from all walks of life.  You don't need any previous qualifications - apart from a Driving Licence and those requirements listed later. 

You will be responsible for your own safety, that of your pupil and other road users.  You will need a high level of concentration throughout your working day.  Your last lesson of the day has to be conducted with the same enthusiasm and competence as your first. 

You should not embark upon this career lightly, as the qualifying process is tough, the national pass rate is low and typically takes several months to complete. 

However, a career as a driving instructor is extremely rewarding,consider;


Pay as you learn

Compass Instructor Training, adopts a pay as you learn approach to training, unlike major training establishments.  We do not ask for fees up front*, only for each training session. 

What ever your individual reason for becoming a Driving Instructor, our flexible pay as you learn approach makes a change of career more affordable. 

*This applies to practical training only
