I HAVE rarely been so angry as when I read in the Birmingham Mail The Birmingham Mail is a tabloid newspaper based in Birmingham, UK but distributed around Birmingham, The Black Country, Solihull, Warwickshire and parts of Worcestershire and Staffordshire. the article 'So you want to be a driving instructor' by Adam Smith, which was so full of inaccuracies and half truths that it would be laughable were it not so serious.
To highlight just a few - 'new instructors can start off earning pounds 450 a week at a driving school.' No sir they will not. I have been an instructor for 20 years, 15 of them at a national driving school, and know of many new instructors who after maybe three months have about 10 pupils giving them an 'income' of perhaps pounds 300 a week.
However, out of that they have to pay a franchise fee to said driving school of up to pounds 350, and fuel costs of probably pounds 50 on 15 lessons. YOU do the maths.
And pounds 25-plus an hour?! Get real! There's a recession coming. If you must publish articles of this type, PLEASE get the facts right and give both sides of the story before you encourage even more poor unfortunates to give up a perfectly good job, train to be an instructor - and starve starve
