Elaine’s Story on Becoming a Driving Instructor

Hi my name is Elaine O’Sullivan and I’m a qualified driving instructor with Ladybird Driving School since November 2019.

Having spent 16 years in childcare I just needed something different. Something that was for me.

Somewhere I could set my own holidays and work my own hours and have something I felt rewarding at the end of the week.

I have a passion for cars and I saw the Ladybird Driving School cars around my area and it triggered me to actually get in touch.

I met the team and the immediate feeling I got was that this was a team effort here.

No egos, no bosses just people who wanted to make a difference for me.

Thats the amazing thing about Ladybird. Its all about the instructors and their quality!

The ADI training team well, I’ve never met such a passionate team who’s attention to detail is at another level.

Their driving instructor course is the highest standard I’ve ever seen and I witnessed it first hand and passed all of my stages first time!

Honestly for anyone needing to change jobs or career, if you are stuck where you don’t want to be, then driving instruction can definitely take you out of there.

Just give Ladybird a call for a chat. They will advise you best for you! I can’t thank them enough and I’m forever grateful for my quality of life now!

Contact me if you want further clarification on anything in relation to becoming an instructor!
