If you like the idea of working as a driving instructor Stockport has several companies; it’s also an easy field in which to work for yourself. It’s definitely a career option for those who don’t like being stuck behind a desk or in front of a screen, and no two work days are exactly alike. You’ll need to be patient and able to explain things clearly, comfortable with nervous drivers and able to interact with people from all walks of life. As for other requirements, you’ll need to be at least 21 years old and have had a driving licence for at least 3 years. There should be no more than 6 penalty points on your licence and you’ll need to pass a background check. There are 3 different exams to pass, which cover instructional ability, a theory and hazard test and of course, driving ability.
