If you’re currently sitting in the office, staring at the clock as time ticks slowly by and worrying about when your boss is next going to check up on you, a career change could well be on the cards.
If you’re looking for a job that’s more flexible, more rewarding and better paid than the one you’re in now, becoming a driving instructor could be the perfect solution.
For those considering making the change, here are some reason why becoming a driving instructor could be the best decision you ever make.
Flexible working hours
If you’re independently minded, there’s nothing worse than someone else telling you what time to start work, what time to have your lunch and what time to go home.
As a driving instructor you’ll be able to decide your own timetable, giving you the freedom to work as and when you want.
Though much of the work will be in the evenings and at weekends, you’ll still be able to choose the times of your lessons. Better yet, if you want to head off on holiday for a week or two, there’s no one to stop you.
Being your own boss
Becoming your own boss is an incredibly satisfying achievement and one that can see you become a lot happier and more confident in your working life.
Though some instructors choose to join local driving schools, like Wimbledon Driving School, to get themselves established, as a driving instructor you’ll still have a say over how you run your business and how you want to grow it in the future.
Getting out and about
If you’re fed up of being stuck in an office all day, every day, becoming a driving instructor will let you get out from behind that desk and see a bit of the world outside.
As an instructor you can decide the route you’re going to take for each lesson, giving yourself, and your pupils, the chance to explore a bit of the local area.
Meeting lots of new people
There’s nothing like meeting new people to make you feel energised and satisfied at work. As an instructor, you’ll be meeting new pupils on a regular basis.
Though you’ll need some people skills to get on with everyone, meeting new people and teaching them a valuable life skill is an incredibly satisfying and rewarding way to earn your pay packet.
