The standard yearly income of a full-time driving instructor varies depending on the State that you live in. For example, in South Australia, lesson prices currently sit between $85 to $100 per hour, providing full-time SA instructors with an annual income of around $122,400* to $144,000*. In comparison, the lesson price for Victorian instructors ranges between $60 to $70 per hour, earning a full-time instructor, an annual income of between $86,400* and $93,000* per year, so it can be fruitful to change careers. 

*PLEASE NOTE: Calculations shown here are represented as a gross income (before tax) and are based on a 40 hour week, completing six lessons per day over five days, 48 weeks of the year. It does not include the additional income generated from accompanying your client to their driving test.  The hourly rate for drive tests is above the lesson fee.  These figures do not include the costs associated with running a business and vehicle for the purpose of driver training.
