Are you looking to become a driving instructor?
It can be a life-changing career move that brings along more independent work lifestyle, flexible hours and less office stress.
You may wonder if it is a long-term and sustainable career path?
According to data from the Department of Transport, the amount of UK driving instructors has fallen by 12% over the past seven years - falling from 44,569 in 2013 to 39,521 at the start of 2020 - and this is predicted to fall even further in the coming years. Based on current trends, the number of instructors on the road in 2025 looks set to fall to just over 38,000 as more instructors retire or move into other careers themselves, which could make things difficult for provisional drivers.
So, now is a good time to put your plan in action!
