Being an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) is a very rewarding job that has the potential of earning you a good salary. However, it is important that you understand the reality of becoming an ADI, so here is a little information that will allow you to make an informed decision about whether this is the right career for you.
The benefits of becoming a self-employed ADI are quite personal although some apply to everyone;
• You are your own boss
• You decide your working hours
• High Job satisfaction
There are certain skills and attributes that will benefit you as an ADI;
• Clear and logical communication skills
• Patience, understanding and tolerance
• Ability to coach and not chastise
• Good listening skills
• Good observation skills
• Ability to work in a one-to-one situation
• Good organisational skills
Some of these can be taught, however some of these are parts of your personality and these are harder to learn or change. If you are someone who loses his or her temper quickly, or are impatient then this may not be the job for you. It is worth considering that since you will be self-employed, you won't get paid for holidays or sickness and your income can fluctuate. However, if you are someone who thrives on seeing people achieve then this is definitely the job for you.
