Thinking of becoming a driving instructor?
Becoming a driving instructor is a career
that should not be taken lightly.
You need to be in it for the right reasons. There are too many instructors
who are all to eager to pull the wool over a pupils eyes by not
giving them value for money, whether it be parking up, giving an
unnecessary briefing to save on petrol; milking pupils for extra
lessons when they dont need them; clipping time off lessons
or keeping them on the same few roads lesson after lesson where
the pupil gains no variety of experience.
I believe that teaching is a vocation. You are teaching a life skill.
Its not about passing the test, its about pupils learning
to drive and on todays roads they need all of the help that
you can give them.
From the first few lessons where they are so nervous that you think
they are out to kill you, to the day they take their test and the
expression on their face when they pass, this is a journey that
you undertake together.
You give them all that youve got and trust me your business
Teaching driving instructors demands the same high standard of commitment
from you as well as me, its about getting you through the
entire course and out the other end fully qualified. To that end
I will need to be sure that youre making the right choice
and that this career is right for you.
You will need to be friendly, understanding, adaptable and above
all, patient. If a pupil cant do something, its because
you havent taught it properly. At Ambassador we adapt our
teaching methods to suit each individual pupil.
These courses arent cheap. There are too many people who sign
up for driving instructor courses without really knowing what to
expect and end up with a big hole in their bank balance and no qualification.
If I think that you are not suited to the course I will tell you.
Im only interested in teaching people to become driving instructors
who will always have the commitment to be the best that they can
and have the ability to pass that onto their pupils.
If you think that is you, i would like to meet you.
