What Do Driving Instructors Do?

Driving instructors teach students how to drive safely and follow traffic laws.

You need strong teaching and communication skills to help your students learn essential driving concepts and methods.

Is Driving Instructor a Good Career?
Working as a driving instructor is a good career if you are passionate about helping others. You are doing important work, teaching a new generation of drivers how to safely operate motor vehicles on roads and highways. Your responsibilities are teaching students safe driving concepts and giving them opportunities to practice behind the wheel. You may work evenings and weekends, especially if you are a driving instructor for high school students studying to pass their driver’s license test.

How Do Driving Instructors Get Paid?
Driving instructors typically get paid hourly. Your pay is based on the number of hours you spend providing students hands-on driving experience. You will be paid biweekly. 

How to Be a Good Driving Instructor
To be a good driving instructor, you must also be a good driver and have experience driving the types of vehicles you are teaching students to drive, whether that is a car, motorcycle, bus, or semi-truck. Make your students feel safe and comfortable learning to drive; inexperienced drivers are often nervous when they are in the driver’s seat. Teach students driver safety habits, defensive driving techniques, and state traffic laws. Driving instruction also includes classroom lessons, so practice public speaking skills and giving presentations.
