Become a driving instructor with Fantoni Driving School
Arguably, there are few careers that can match the rewards that driving instruction can in return for the initial outlay. For example, qualification to become a driving instructor could be achieved for around £2000-£4000. It is possible after qualification to be earning £30,000 – £40,000 annually once established. Many other careers offering similar levels of income require university courses and years of study. As is well known, training for and completing a degree can cost tens of thousands of pounds. So, you can see from this that driving instruction can offer as much, “bang for your buck” as many other professions.
