What's it really like becoming a driving instructor?

If you decide to become a driving coach, do your research, talk to as many training providers as possible, as the training provider will be the most important part of the qualifying process.  This is my twenty first year in ADI driver training and not once in 21 years have I felt like I was going to work.  One of the most important things to remember is that this is a service industry and, therefore, you will need to work unsocial hours from time to time.

Can I rely on Inspire?
