About Us

Founded in 2017, Coastline Academy is a driver education company whose behind-the-wheel operations make us the largest in the country. We are a people-first, technology-centric company with a focus on transparency and efficiency. We are on a mission to rid the world of car crashes.

About This Role

As a Driving Instructor with Coastline Academy, you will be teaching the drivers of tomorrow. In a company-provided vehicle, you will educate and advise students while teaching them the fundamentals of operating a car behind the wheel. You will be responsible for planning and delivering customized lessons that promote students' theoretical and applied driving skills. Driving instructors also communicate with students to determine which of their skills require further development.

We'll assist you in obtaining the state-required driving instructor certification through our paid training program. The training consists of video sessions, self-paced reading assignments, and behind-the-wheel training in a Coastline car in your local area. All of our lessons are taught in a Coastline Car and recorded with a dashboard camera for the safety of you and your student. Our driving instructors enjoy tailoring their own schedules, keeping in mind the majority of the demand for driving lessons is in the afternoons and weekends as most of our students are on a school schedule. A typical day could consist of three, two-hour lessons with paid travel time included.
