There has never been a better time to start a career as a driving instructor.
Demand for driving tuition is currently very high because of COVID lockdown restrictions, people turning the required age to be elibilge, legal and eager to learn, social and demographic changes requiring a licence for employment and even simply not wanting to use public transport. This demand for service will continue to grow as our population explodes in coming years.
Being a driving instructor gives you great flexibility to choose the days, times and locations that you want to work. Great job satisfaction is achieved by fitting the job around you, how cool is that?
Practically, you may find that you need to work the hours that your pupils want. Of course the more flexible you are with your hours, the more work you are likely to get. You can if you wish stick rigidly to the hours you are only willing to offer, for instance 9 to 5 on weekdays only, though you may find that you will lose potential work for those that want driving lessons yet have a full time job. It's all about being flexible and achieving that balance.
Generally however, if you become a successful driving instructor and have a constant supply of work coming in, you can pretty much work the hours you want to work and refuse those that cannot accommodate the hours you offer. You may also find that if you gain a good reputation, people will be more likely to arrange their schedule to fit into yours as they feel that having a reputable instructor is worth it.
