Q: What is it like working as a Driving Instructor?

January 2015
"Be very nice and patient."
Driving Instructor:
Make your job fun, be nice and patient and encourage your students to keep trying. If they don't get it, show them different ways like some people learn by a simple drawing, or maybe they need to physically see you do it first. Always be aware of the other cars around you. Be ready for all ages, personalities , even ones that don't speak English , I find that very challenging, but I still get the point across and my students love me and I am the most requested instructor in town. I'm wanting to maybe work for DMV examiner for the benefits, sitting in a car for 40 hrs a week can put a lot of stress on your back and legs.
