Success for a Driving Instructor

Driving Instructor Training Success


If you are needing to put some extra sparkle into your work-life read on!  BIG TOM Driving School is recruiting for more driving instructors and are particularly keen to hear from people who are new to the industry.  Making a career change can be a daunting prospect due to moving into an unknown environment especially if you have many years of experience in your own particular workplace.   The driving school is reputed for being able to provide a calm, stress-free learning environment for our Learner driver customers, and we take great pride in developing trusting, respectful relationships with our trainee driving instructors so that they also benefit from learning new skillsets in a relaxing, enjoyable way.

Our experience has shown us that whilst there will be many people who are very interested joining this successful driving school, it is quite natural to find reasons why this wont be possible for them.  Previous concerns raised include:

  • Childcare arrangements
  • Holiday and pension entitlements
  • Pay
  • Passing any tests
  • Expenditure for training
  • Time Management

We would encourage anyone who is concerned about any of the above to get in touch as these need not prevent you from having a better life with new, exciting rewards.

The owner of BIG TOM Driving School, Tom Ingram offers the following advice:

“I have 2 young sons and needed to find an alternative work schedule that suited my family needs.  Being a driving instructor has proved to be exactly the right choice for me personally as it has given me the income and flexibility of hours that I need.  I would also emphasise that the work itself is incredibly stimulating, and keeps me on my toes which I personally find rewarding as it keeps my brain active.  The relationships that are developed to help people learn this life-skill are incredibly positive and I have found over the years that it has had a beneficial effect on my general outlook on life which is hard to put a price on.”

We are looking for applicants of all ages and will happily answer any questions of a technical nature relating to health or driving endorsements.  The driving school serves the areas of Stamford, Spalding, Grantham, Peterborough, Lincoln and Boston but we would also be very interested to hear from applicants outside these areas.  We offer traditional driving lessons on a “pay as you go” basis as well as our popular BIG TOM Intensive Driving Course.  We also hope to be providing Under 17 driving experiences soon.

If you have a natural interest in people, enjoy communicating with all age groups and like the idea of gaining more control of how your work/life balance is developing then don’t miss out on this opportunity.  Click here for more information relating to this Franchise or better still, come straight through to us and we will be pleased to call you back at a time that suits you.
