Being a Driving Instructor is a job like no other. What does it feel like to be teaching drivers, new and experienced, in driving class and from the passenger seat? Considering a lot of people say they could never do this job, we thought it would be interesting to see what really motivates and makes a Driving Instructor tick and how they achieve success.
We asked our experienced Young Drivers Instructors in Newmarket:
1. Pick 1 word to describe what being a YD driving Instructor means to them.
2. Give 1 sentence to describe why they chose this word.
The response was overwhelming. The strong Young Drivers of Canada Newmarket team took on the challenge with zeal and shared the opinions of each of their Instructors with us….
George – Gratifying – the feeling you get when a student, anxious about driving, passes his or her road test.
Ross – Coach – because that is what I feel I really do – give my students the tools they need to be Collisionfree drivers.
