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.
