Become a driving instructor
How? If you're a good, safe and confident driver you could become a driving instructor in your spare time, although you will have to devote some time and money to it at the start. To qualify as a Department of Transport Approved Driving Instructor you need to pass three exams and meet certain requirements, such as holding a full British driving license for a minimum of four years. Once you have the qualifications you need, you can decide whether you want to work for yourself or become a franchisee. If you choose to work for a bigger company, you'll have to pay a certain amount each week to them, but you'll get a brand new dual-control car and they'll help you find students, too. If you run your own operation you'll need to buy a car with dual controls.
