The Annual UK Driving Instructor review revealed that RED driving instructors earn an average of £32.52 per hour.
There is no maximum amount of hours that you can work per week as a driving instructor. At RED, we simply ask that you are sensible with your decision making. The nature of the role requires that you give students full attention and care, this means it is important that you are well-rested and alert at all times.
The Annual UK Driving Instructor review was conducted by the industry’s watchdog FBTC in December 2022, found that on average, independent driving instructors work 26.2 hours per week, compared to RED driving instructors who on average choose to work 30 hours per week (over four extra hours of work per week).
The same study revealed that on average, independent driving instructors are earning £787 per week compared to RED driving instructors that earn £975 per week.
RED driving instructors earn 17% (or £132) more each week than independent instructors.
Based on the figures above, multiplying the average hours worked by the average weekly salary across a 50-week year, a RED driving instructor’s average earnings are £48,750 annually.
The first idea that springs to mind for generating extra earnings is more hours and a higher cost. This is not necessarily required. Whilst you are welcome to work as many hours as you choose depending on availability, there are other smart strategies you can adopt in order to maximise your earning potential.
Earnings aside, there are a number of other benefits that RED driving instructors can expect:

Pete Chiston had to say “The fast track training was very intense and a lot to take in over three days however the follow up support from my in car trainer David was great and tailored to meet my very hands on approach to learning, this in combination with the office support has meant that the process although at points very challenging was still a positive overall experience.”
