Do you want to be a traffic school instructor?

A traffic instructor such as a driving instructor teaches at a high school, driving school, etc. Traffic school teachers offer responsible driving instruction that help drivers charged with traffic violations. Becoming a traffic instructor requires you fulfill certain requisites, for example you must have a clean license and an excellent driving record. The following are the steps and requirements (that vary by states) to be a traffic school instructor:
  • A preparation course is required. Before taking it, verify if your current educational background suits the requirements in your state. For example in California, it is required that traffic school instructors have at least high school education and pass an examination. It would be a good idea you checked the requirements of your state by consulting the DMV (Driving Motor Vehicle).

  • Taking a complete driver education instructor's training course will be necessary (may vary by states). This course is focused on safe operation of motor vehicles and teaching techniques.

  • Getting a license is another step. People who want to be instructors have to apply for the appropriate license in their state. For example in California, in addition to having a valid state-issued driver's license, one has to pass an examination and submit an application to become a licensed instructor.
The average salary for a traffic school instructor varies according to the location, company, experience, etc.

Being a driver is another option, if you like driving. For these kinds of jobs you have to make sure that you have the proper license to drive the vehicle. Another important thing to consider is that drivers have to know the traffic rules and regulations and always keep in mind to drive safely.
