After looking at the options available to him, John made the decision to retrain as a driving instructor. He embarked on a course with RED Driving School and passed his final exams in September 2016.
John says; “I left my job in the City because there was just so much pressure and stress. I was in a very dark place and was diagnosed with clinical depression. I knew I needed to get out and do something which was more fulfilling and ultimately would help people.
“Since becoming a Driving Instructor, I feel like there’s been a total turnaround in my life. I’m my own boss, and I don’t have to do anything I don’t want to do. When I worked in the City, I had a two hour commute, followed by a 12 or 14 hour day, rounded off with another two hour commute. I wasn’t living; I was existing. I feel so much happier in myself. It’s like my mind has been set free from the stress.
“Now, I have so much more time to do the things that I want to do, and the freedom to set my own schedule. RED Driving School have been great and I can’t recommend them enough. My only regret is that I didn’t do this 10 years earlier!”
