At this early stage, it’s just a thought that you may wish to explore further.
It’s not my intention to persuade or influence, but merely run the idea by you. Many people request the book and after reading decide it’s not for them and that is exactly why I like to send the book out. At least you have explored the possibility and you can continue your search for a solution to your work/lifestyle balance.
Many people read the book and then wish to explore further by making a visit to the driving school HQ here in Bridgwater. During the visit, you have the opportunity to witness first-hand how the school is run, meet the staff and perhaps more importantly, see how you would fit into the team once qualified.
We send a lot of books out to the local Bridgwater and Taunton area each year and that helps us to find the 6-8 new people who wish to pursue this career change and join us at the school.
Requesting the book has been life changing for over 100 local people during the past ten years and it might be life changing for you also!
You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
Simply add your postal details to the form and book will be sent the next day.
Whatever you decide, I appreciate your visit and hope you find what you are looking for.

Many people dream of changing their current job and improving their lifestyle until the opportunity has passed them by, your opportunity is right Now!
My name is Kelvin White and that definitely applied to me on all three counts back in 1999.
At the time, I was working for Eddie Stobart, one of the country’s top transport firms. The job paid reasonably well and I did get to travel the UK, visiting just about every town and city.
I did quite like the trucking life style but there was a huge trade off.
During my 20 + years as a long-distance lorry driver, I was away from home and my young family for 4-5 nights every week.
My wife Sandra had the task of bringing up my two sons alone and I only got to see them at weekends. When I look back, I now realise what a huge sacrifice that was.
I missed those very precious and special moments, like the first crawl across the carpet, the first spoken words, the first steps, the school plays and the football matches.
It Would Seem That I Am not Alone!
Of course, I am not alone and during the past ten years, I have conducted hundreds of interviews with people that have similar stories to tell.
I have had the opportunity to meet a very diverse group of people, from the head of marketing and operations at one of the local BMW dealerships, the chief executive of a world-wide manufacturing company, the head teacher at a very large school and several workers from the local Argos, Morrison’s and Gerber companies.
Although this group of people may seem very different, they all have one thing in common.
They are either “owned” by their job and their employers or they lack any type of job satisfaction, recognition or long-term prospects.
Some of the people that I have met have extremely demanding jobs and the huge salaries to match but at some stage, the constant demands often place a strain on family life.
Others will find themselves in mundane jobs where they often spend 50 weeks of the year looking forward to their annual holiday and tolerate a mind numbing and often unrewarding existence.
Going to work on a Monday morning and wishing it was Friday is sadly the norm for many as life passes them by.
The Decision That Completely Changed My Life
If I revert back to my own story and look at what finally made me take some action, it was no more than a simple ad in a newspaper, with the heading – Become a driving instructor.
I remember that exact moment to this very day but little did I know that it was about to change my entire life.
I was sat in the cab of my truck in Sheerness, Kent, 200 miles from home. It was Friday 17th July and I remember watching two parents and their children playing in the park opposite.
My two sons were now 14 & 16 years old and as the realisation sunk in that I could never replace those special moments you share with your children as they are growing up.
I returned home on the Saturday and immediately called the ad number and made an appointment for August 25th.
We were about to go on our annual holiday to Spain and spending quality time with my family made me realise that I could do nothing to replace those lost years but unless I took some action I could be tolerating the same sacrifices for the next 20 years.
We returned home, I attended the interview and I immediately knew this would-be life changing.
Finally, A New Start After Wasting Twenty Years Of My Life.
I qualified as an approved driving instructor in May 1999.
I set off to work on the Monday and for the first time in over 20 years, I knew I would be home later that day at a time of my choosing, I would be sleeping in my own bed and be with my family.
During the past 18 years, I have been able to completely control the days and times I work, I have holidays whenever I choose them without asking permission.
Each day brings enormous job satisfaction and teaching a complete novice and making them a fully qualified driver is hugely rewarding.
Do any of the following examples apply to you?
You work long hours and you are sacrificing family time
You have no choice over the days you work
You work at weekends when family time is most important
You take holidays when your employer chooses
Your job is unrewarding and you have become stale
You receive no recognition for your efforts
You arrive at work on Monday longing for Friday
You are fed up working for someone else (employer)
You would like to become your own boss and call the shots
You would like to choose the days and hours you work
You would like to work in the local area without commuting
You have an entrepreneurial streak to start your own business
If the answer is YES……..
Then maybe a new career as a Driving Instructor might be the solution for you!
Have I have aroused your interest so far?
If so, you will no doubt have a hundred and one questions regarding the training, the job, the money, the costs and what its actually like working as a driving instructor.
The best possible way for me to give you a completely unbiased and extremely comprehensive view of the industry and what its really like, is to send you a FREE 60-page book.
I became a driving instructor in May 1999 and worked with a national driving school until April 2001.
I then went independent and was very proud to be operating with my name on the tuition vehicle as I build a solid local reputation.
I was attracting more work than I could handle and in 2007, I took on my 1st franchisee and made the transition to becoming a driving school.
By 2012 Kelvin White Driving School was operating with 30+ franchised instructors.
Some of those franchisees that joined me back in the early days are still with me but many of the instructors that we have trained, have left to set up their own businesses and become independent.
The reason I mention this is because you may prefer to be in a position where you are working under the umbrella of Bridgwater and Taunton’s largest driving school, with all your marketing and admin taken care of or you may be the entrepreneurial type that would like to see your own name “in lights” at some stage and that’s absolutely fine of course.
The world, really is your oyster
I have been sending out the books for the past ten years and as a result, we have trained close to 100 local people but many that receive and look through the book decide it’s not quite right for them. That’s absolutely fine, at least they explored the possibility rather than simply accept their current situation.
The purpose of the book is not to persuade or convince you in any way but to give you an insight to what may be a solution for you.
You have nothing to lose and maybe everything to gain.
Twenty minutes of your time could turn out to be life changing as it was for me!
Your contact and postal details will be used to send the book out to you. They will not be passed to any third party or used for any other reason other than detailed here.
