Employment Opportunities


Drive! Driving School is currently looking for the right individuals to fill the following positions:

Behind-The-Wheel Instructor

Job Description:

The primary task of a driving instructor is to demonstrate how to safely operate a motor vehicle. Students in behind-the-wheel training will have completed classroom lessons in which they learned driving laws and driver courtesy. In addition to demonstrating these concepts behind the wheel, instructors will explain how a car operates, how to perform safety checks and what to do in an emergency. A Drive! Driving School instructor must be extremely patient, able to communicate well and be comfortable working with individuals of widely varying abilities. Instructors work with two students at a time. Most students will be high schoolers preparing for their first driver’s license. However, Drive! Driving School also provides instruction to adults (over 18) seeking training to obtain a NC Driver’s License for the first time, or “refresher” course to review NC laws.

Instructors must track student attendance and performance and communicate results to the Drive! Driving School in a timely manner. Because most students will be teenagers, behind-the-wheel sessions usually will be scheduled on weekends or weekdays after school during the school year.  Over the summer, student’s will drive all day during the week and weekends.

Requirements:

  • Licensed through the State of North Carolina as a Commercial Driver Education School Instructor*
  • US Citizen
  • At least 25 years of age
  • Four years’ experience as a licensed motor vehicle operator
  • Background check: No felony convictions or misdemeanor convictions involving moral turpitude in the last ten years
  • No revocations or suspensions of driver’s license in the last five years
  • No convictions for moving violations totaling five or more points in the last three years
  • Drug free and willing to take a drug test upon request from Drive! Driving School
  • Background in teaching preferred but not required
  • College degree preferred but not required

Drive! Driving School will provide a State Approved Vehicle with dual brake pedals, gas, regular vehicle maintenance and insurance.

Dress Code:

Drive! Driving School will provide instructors with shirts to wear during behind-the-wheel sessions. For summer, shirts will be short-sleeved. For cooler weather, long-sleeved shirts, as well as a Drive! Driving School jacket are available. Shoes must have a back; no flip
flops allowed. Students are not permitted to wear flip flops.

*This requires completion of a State Certified class. The class lasts 2 weeks (80 hours), and is required for this position.
