FAQ's for Driving Instructors

  • Who are we and what do we do?

    We are a 100% Australian owned initiative.

    Our aim is to provide the Driving School industry with a much needed solution, which provides the driving schools and instructors with an easy way of advertising, and provides the customers with a tool to search for different driving schools on the one website.

  • How does it benefit my driving school or me as a driving instructor?

    Driving Schools : If you are using paid online advertising to gain new students, surely you are aware of the high cost of online advertising. By registering with "Find My Instructor", your business information can be viewed by students on our website when they search online for driving schools. They can also choose to visit your website. Make the most of first page online presence without the high charges!

    Independent Instructors : If you are a driving instructor and paying commission to Driving schools to gain students and provide you with work, your wait is over. You can advertise independently on our website, and STOP PAYING COMMISSIONS. For a set monthly fee, you choose your rates and offer packages on your terms.We will display your details to customers who search for a driving school within your selected service zones. The customers can then select driving schools according to their various requirements.

  • How does it help our customers?

    Customers can check rates and services offered by various driving schools on one website. They can choose the option to compare one or more services offered by the driving schools and filter their search based on individual needs.

    Customers can filter through the search results, for example, they can search for a Spanish speaking instructor in their suburb with a manual car.

    Not at all.  You can be a driving school or an independent driving instructor and advertise on our website. Please check with your state/territory for instructor licensing requirements and charging customers for driving lessons.
