Q: What is it like working as a Driving Instructor?
"Be very nice and patient."
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.
Pros: Out and about. Great seeing students succeed.
Cons: Often work weekends and evenings.
