Is it a good idea to become a driving instructor?
I'm 21 years old, and I love driving more than anything. I have wanted to be a driving instructor since I was young but my Dad put me off, telling me it's a dead end job and that it's impossible to earn a decent living. Anyway, I've done some research recently and there are a lot of bad things people are saying about the training and it all being a money making scheme. Can anyone with experience tell me the pros and cons about becoming a driving instructor?

A lot of my friends got into instructing and all of them have moved on as its a market flooded with competition. Part time, maybe evenings, may be the way to go. You will see if there is a market in your area. Good Luck.
