Getting down to business

Firstly, becoming a driving instructor can be one of the most satisfying and rewarding of professions. If you’re a great communicator, patient, love to inspire people and are a good driver as well then it’s a perfect career choice for you.

But it’s not simply a matter of qualifying as a DSA-approved instructor, sticking a large L-sign on the top of your car, and off you go. There’s actually a lot more to being a driving instructor than you may think. You’re running your own business, so you’ll need to be on the ball when it comes to the paperwork too, and that includes your driving school insurance cover.

What insurance do I need?

The specialist insurance market has come a long way in recent years. It is now possible to put together driving school insurance packages that cover everything from public liability insurance through to dual control car cover that’s specially designed to insure modified driving school vehicles.

You will also need to consider additional insurance such as personal liability insurance, which could protect you financially should a third party decide to take out a compensation claim against you personally. If you run a school and employ other instructors then you will need employer’s liability insurance. Finally, for your own peace of mind, it may also be a good idea to take out loss of earnings insurance. This covers you financially if you can’t work for any length of time but have a home or family to take care of.

What types of driving instructor insurance and driving school insurance can we help you with?

Do I need a specialist insurance provider?

Running a driving school or becoming an independent driving instructor is considered a risky job by many general insurance companies. All insurance is calculated by balancing risk. That means you may discover that the price for insurance cover that you’re offered on the high street is high.

You can normally save money by approaching a specialist insurance company, which really understands your business and the likely risks involved. But where do you start to look? Finding out who to contact and what to ask for can be daunting if you are just starting out. If you’d rather spend your time on the road earning money, use a specialist broker like Park insurance to find you the best-priced deal.

Opting for specialist insurance won’t just get you a better price deal. It’s also designed to take account of your special needs. That means you can arrange cover that will help your business to thrive. For example, you can opt for cover that ensures you’ll get a replacement dual-control car if yours is at the garage being fixed following an accident. And that means you can keep working, whatever happens.

We can give you independent, impartial advice on exactly what level of cover you need for your peace of mind. And we’ll put together a package that suits your exact needs. That means you pay only for the cover you do need and don’t waste cash on anything you don’t.
