Every day is different


Education and Training - 24 years


My story In 1989, despite having a background in electronics and real estate, I started my own driving school. I was hesitant at first about becoming a driving instructor.

In my first week I made $28.00, but I was happy to have an income and be self-employed. My wife and I would do letterbox drops in the local area and in just 6 weeks I was fully booked!

After 31 years of building the business, I recruited more instructors and built a solid reputation within the area.


Do you want to start a new career? Ask yourself:

  • Are you looking for a flexible working hours?
  • Would you be passionate about teaching young people safe driving skills?
  • Do you want the independence of running your own business?
  • Are you looking for change and continuous work?


How much will you earn?

Earning potential depends on how many hours you are looking to work. Do you want to work full time or part time? Driving lessons average from $60 – $80+ per hour depending on the area! Working as an instructor full-time you could potential earn over $2,000 per week.


What are the advantages?

  • Driving instruction allows you to work your own hours.
  • You may choose to work full time or part time around family commitments or as a second income on weekends.
  • Driving instructors who start their own business also have tax advantages of being self-employed (seek further advice from your accountant).
