Become an instructor at Go2 Driving School

“Most people dream of changing their career and improving their lifestyle until it’s too late!”

Becoming a driving instructor allows you to be in control of your life and your future. Choosing the days and hours you want to work is something that most people will never have the luxury of.

I guess there are many reasons as to why you are exploring the possibility of a  new career or lifestyle change. It could be that you have become demoralised with your current job and feel that you are not fulfilling your full potential. Maybe you feel like just another number, who is primarily lining the pockets of your boss, with little or no gratitude. You could even be faced with the dreaded threat of redundancy.

There is a growing demand for driving instructors nationally and there has never been a better time to make that career change. Becoming a driving instructor was the best career move I ever made. It’s given me the best of everything, from job satisfaction to financial stability. Most importantly for me, was the ability to have the family and social life that I had always dreamed of.


When I initially looked  into leaving my last employment, my job search was quickly met with the realisation that in order to maintain the lifestyle that I had at that time, I was going to have to invest into a career that was skilled and required training – either that or accept earning around the minimum wage.

I had always enjoyed driving and made the decision to invest in some training and become my own boss. I have since been rewarded for my efforts and it has proved to be life changing. In fact, it’s the best decision I’ve ever made (see my video above).

My reason for putting together this instructor training website is to help give you an insight into exactly what it’s really like working as a driving instructor in Derby. There is generally very little independent information available for research on such a major career decision. I have tried to include the information in an unbiased way that will help you explore the options available to you, both for choosing your training provider and for actually working as a driving instructor once qualified.

I hope that it will help you to make an informed decision either way.

“I’d suggest these four vital steps to assist you in making the correct decision”.

1. Please order a copy of my free 50 page book. You will then be able to read the case studies from driving instructors who talk about why they came into this industry and how it has changed and their lives. They also give their thoughts on the pros and cons of the job.

2. Arrange a meet up with myself. There won’t be any high pressure sales pitch, I can assure you of that. You’ll also get a feel for whether you can see us working together as I’m also head of our instructor training programme and will be conducting the training sessions.

3. Ask every single question you can think of and I will give you a very honest answer. Being a local business, it is crucial that we are transparent in everything we say and do, as we live and operate on your doorstep.

4. Research what other training companies have to offer and you will then be able to make an informed comparison.

“Do I have any regrets… YES, I wish I hadn’t wasted several years of my life that are now irreplaceable”.

I’ve taken the time to publish a 50 page book that I’m prepared to send out to you for FREE to help you with your research on “what it is really like to work as a driving instructor?”
