My Four Wheels

There’s little doubt that the pandemic changed all of our lives. But as we continue in our recovery, there’s one group who are even more desperate to get themselves back out there. People learning to drive. 

Because driving lessons weren’t an option during the various lockdowns, it means there’s a huge backlog of people looking to learn and pass their test. Which also means that there aren’t currently enough instructors to meet demand. 

My Four Wheels will help train up new instructors from scratch and the company has hundreds of roles on offer all throughout November. All you need is a clean UK driving licence and at least two and a half years’ driving experience to get started. Oh, and also patience in abundance…

Roles in demand:

Benefits of working for My Four Wheels include:

  • Getting your very own dual controlled car to teach in
  • The ability to be your own boss and manage your own hours
  • Full training, and excellent rates of pay

Location: Throughout the UK.
