Driving instructors train people of different skill levels on how to correctly and safely operate vehicles. Instructors mainly work in vehicles with people who are either earning their license for the first time or those who have decided to make a career out of commercial driving (such as commercial truck drivers). Driving instructors cover a wide range of topics, including driver safety, traffic laws, and defensive driving tactics.
