There is a shortage of driver instructors in Lethbridge. That is according to the Alberta Motor Association. This week marks the AMA’s Small Business Week and the group is using the shortage as a way to bring the opportunity to aspiring entrepreneurs who want to enjoy the safety net of a larger contracted partner. Company officials say the shortage is being caused by the pandemic and drivers retiring.
Manager of AMA Driver Education, Ryan Lemont, says they usually get around 10,000 students through their doors each year, with a need for more instructors. He says this is a great business opportunity.
A driver education instructor can earn as much as $70,000 a year. If you’d like to apply for an instructor, visit Careers.AMA.ab.ca.
