Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a driving instructor do?

Driving instructors teach individuals and groups of students the importance of safe driving that is free of violations and collisions. They explain and demonstrate proper driving techniques, the mechanical operation of a variety of vehicles, and ways to handle vehicles in emergency events. They explain and demonstrate the operation of brakes, signals and lights, automatic transmission, gear selection, clutch, windshield wipers, and other features of motor vehicles. They also teach road skills, road safety, and obeying of road traffic regulations. Driving instructors teach lessons in the classroom and through on the road training. They often explain and demonstrate handling and motor vehicle operation and driving techniques using audiovisual aids, blackboard designs, and other teaching aids. They also observe the driving habits of individuals and their reactions during different driving conditions. Driving instructors provide constructive feedback on the progress of their students. They provide advice to students and let them know when they are ready to sit for their driving examination.

What kind of training does a driving instructor need?

Driving instructors must have at least a high school diploma or equivalent and have a valid driver’s license with a clean driving record. Driving instructors must complete education courses in areas such as safe driving practices, signs, signals, and road markings, human physical and psychological issues, and the effect of natural forces on a vehicle.

Driving instructors must be licensed in the state they intend to teach. Licensing requirements vary by state, but most require passing a background check and receiving a passing score on a written examination.

What are the prospects for a career as a driving instructor?

Employment of all educational services jobs is expected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 11% from 2006 to 2016 (1). The increased need for educating students to become safer drivers and the increased amount of students enrolled in drivers training programs will drive job growth.

Job prospects are expected to be favorable especially for driving instructors with extensive experience. Job openings will also arise from the need to replace driving instructors who retire or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do driving instructors make?

As of October 2009, driving instructors with less than 1 year experience earned average hourly rates between $11.79 and $16.86. Those with 1 to 4 years experience earned average hourly rates between $11.87 and $15.26 (2).

A career as a driving instructor is an excellent choice for people who are great at operating motor vehicles and enjoy teaching others to be safe on the road. Driving instructors must be patient, motivating, encouraging, and have excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
