Is it legal to teach others to drive?

YES! Provided you are a responsible adult with a full driver’s licence and you feel confident about teaching,  you are allowed to teach people who have a valid learner’s license to drive! And we create driving instructor jobs here! You don’t have to be a certified driving instructor to teach people to drive. Although you are allowed to teach people to drive without driving instructor certification, we recommend that you work towards acquiring certification because this will make your prospective students have more confidence in you and you will be getting more requests for driving lessons. Acquiring driving instructor certification is a fairly simple process. For information on how to become a certified driving instructor please click HERE. Our website receives thousands of visitors looking for people to teach them how to drive or help them perfect or improve their driving skills. If you have a car and a valid driver’s license you can earn money by offering private driving lessons.

But when you do want to earn some decent income, simply sign up on our website as a driving lessons provider and our visitor who are actively studying to get their learner’s licences will certainly find you.

Why Teach Through receives thousands of learner drivers daily looking for K53 study material. It’s these same learner drivers who later go on to look for driving instructors after acquiring their K53 learner’s licences. As such, there is no shortage of students looking for driving lessons on this portal since hundreds of learning requests are submitted daily. Learner drivers who submit learning requests on this portal also pay for their driving lessons in full and in advance so you will receive your payment after you provide the lessons as agreed. There is also no waiting period for payouts because your money is available for payouts immediately after your student releases the payment. You will also enjoy being your own boss, setting your own prices, availability, and teaching styles provided they conform to the K53 rules and regulations. Our portal simply provides you with the market by connecting you with student seeking driving lessons.

The Advantage

Whether it’s someone who wants to practice for the K53 driving test or someone just looking to perfect their driving skills, we have a lot of such visitors on our site. In other words, we have an abundant market for your services. So how do we ensure that every service provider gets hired? Well that’s easy. We invested in developing a smart algorithm which manages the way learning requests are distributed among service providers. It sifts through the members database and job offer statistics. For example, a member who just got hired in a particular area is pushed to the bottom of the priority list and will only receive new offers after every service provider in that area has been hired. So if it happens that only one service provider in a particular area is yet to be hired, the all learning requests are offered to that service provider only. The algorithm also detects members’ activity and will ignore members who don’t respond to quotes or those who have not logged into their account in a while. At, it’s fair game for everyone, that’s why all service providers on our portal get hired.
