Becoming a driving instructor can be one of the most satisfying and rewarding of professions. If you’re a great communicator, patient, love inspiring 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 you need?
The specialist insurance market has come a long way in recent years, and 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. And for your own peace of mind it may also be a good idea to take out loss of earnings insurance to cover you should you be unable to work for any length of time.
All of this can be daunting if you are just starting out. You need a broker who can give you independent, impartial advice and put together a package that suits your exact needs. And that’s where Park Insurance can help.
