Welcome to the Driving Instructor Employment Information Page.

Are you in a franchise that is under delivering on pupils?

Paying a fortune each month and getting little in return?

Struggling to make a living with cancellations and high costs?

We may have a solution for you.

You will need to be a fully qualified Driving Instructor with a current ADI badge.

We are looking to build a close knit team of fully employed and dedicated ADI’s that love the ‘job’ but have become frustrated with the uncertainty that comes with self-employment.

Experience and grade is not important as ongoing training will be provided.

Successful candidates will be those that embrace our vision of a closely knit team who provide top quality tuition in return for the security and benefits a salaried position will bring.

You will provide driving instruction to car drivers in the Exeter area. A new tuition car will be provided with a company charge card for all fuel and maintenance.

Candidates will receive the following benefits:

Guaranteed salary of £20,000 pa

Bonus scheme relating to hours worked with potential to earn an extra £600 a month

Company tuition vehicle with private use included

Workplace Pension

28 days paid holiday

Some flexibility in working hours (typically 36 per week)

In – house training and updates

Job Type: Full-time

Salary and bonuses: £20,000 to £24,600 /year

My name is Kelvin White and I am the owner of Kelvin White Driving School.

We are a family run Driving School based in our home town of Bridgwater. Our current area of operation is just North of Bridgwater, to the South of Exeter and also includes West to Minehead and East to Ilminster and Chard. Taunton is where we have the highest number of instructors but this could all be about to change during 2019 as we look to expand our operations in all areas with the City of Exeter having the most potential with the large population.

I guess we buck the trend by offering full employment to ADI’s and a regular salary to instructors that join the team.

This has been made possible since the introduction of prepaid lessons in combination with a zero tolerance cancellation policy in August 2016.

The Benefits of Employment.


  • Guaranteed salary of £20,000 per annum.

  • Bonus scheme with potential to earn an additional £600 per month

  • New tuition vehicle every two years

  • Company credit card for all fuel and maintenance

  • Workplace pension

  • 28 days paid holiday per year

  • Flexible working hours (Average 36 teaching hours per week)

  • In-house training and updates

  • Customer services and instructor liaison

Working Hours:

Typically your working hours will be Monday to Friday from 08.00 until 20.00 but of course you will not be actually teaching all the time and in reality you will be delivering 3-4 (2 hour) lessons per day. It’s our responsibility to keep your diary full and of course you will still be paid for any downtime.

We do try to be as flexible as possible and you may prefer to finish early (17.00) on a few nights per week and make the hours up on a Saturday.

We have one employed instructor who has Mondays off and works all day on a Saturday.

Lesson Payments:

You will not have to collect any lesson fees from your pupils as all lesson fees are collected by customer services.

Tuition Vehicle:

You will be provided with a company tuition vehicle that will include all insurance, maintenance and fuel costs. We have no problem with you using the tuition vehicle for private local journeys within reason.

Workplace Pension:

You will be enrolled in our workplace pension scheme and this will automatically be deducted from your salary each month.

Holiday pay:

You will be entitled to all bank holiday entitlement (currently 8 days per year)

You will also be entitled to 20 days annual holiday.

Sick pay:

In the event that you are unable to work through sickness, you will be entitled to statutory sick pay after three working days.

In-house Training:

We operate a very successful Instructor Training program where we teach the general public to become instructors. We also provide ongoing training and updates for all of our employed and franchised instructors.


If you feel that you are the sort of person that would prefer the security and regular income that employment brings, then please call me on 01278 450142 to discuss and check any current employment opportunities that exist.

Warm regards,

Kelvin White.
