    Any Driving Instructor gen?

    Ive been thinking for a while now about giving it a go as a driving instructor as ive always wanted to work for myself and I reckon it could be quite rewarding. I've been doing a fair bit of research so I know pretty much what I need to do in terms of the exams/training, was just wondering if anyone has done this or has friends or family in the business as im basically trying to get any insider info I can.

    Thanks.

    Does he work for himself or a franchise, and is there plenty of work in the Paisley area? Ive been told there should be but im always worried that the paisley area has too many instructors as it is.

    I pretty much work in a call centre type place too, and the office environment just isnt for me, I dont mind putting in the long hours, infact i would be over the moon if i got that much work.
