Job Details

McGinnis Driver Safety Centers™ has been serving the needs of New Mexico since 1964.

Our instruction has been the backbone of our success for 50 years. All of our instructors are certified by the New Mexico Transportation Safety Bureau. They submit to a thorough background check and a yearly driving records check. However we require more of our instructors than is required by the State. David McGinnis trains all of our instructors in our unique methodology of instructing the beginning driver both in the classroom and behind the wheel: THE PSYCHOLOGICAL ASPECT OF BEING A GOOD DRIVER.

We desire an individual who is willing to dedicate their efforts to teaching drivers safety education for the purpose of acquiring a New Mexico Driver's License. Such a position requires careful selection as he/she must approach the task with a clear and focused goal; to do their best to ensure that our clients receive the best training possible. In order to teach effectively, one must possess sufficient knowledge and have a passion for the subject; have the proper temperament and interact with youth and adults to provide a comfortable atmosphere where learning can easily be achieved.

McGinnis Driver Safety Centers™ Instructors do not just ride in a car with a student. We teach and build a strong foundation so our teen students, who are so at risk, can finish our program armed with the best education and training possible. Keep in mind, we are not just giving a student a license to drive, we are giving them a license to commit murder or suicide. So, we must treat this as serious as it is.

Because the startup process and professional development is complex and involved, we want an individual who desires to do the work, will take on the job and STAY. It does not require hard work, just strong dedication. It is a definitely a fun job!
