Not woodworking related, but I am a retired driving instructor, and the issue of pricing comes up quite frequently amongst ADIs (DVSA Approved Driving Instructors). A realistic hourly rate would be in the region of £40 per hour. Most ADIs are charging around £25 per hour in this area. It wasn't helped by one charging £16 per hour, that was three years ago. Bear in mind that to charge for driving tuition you have to by law, have taken and passed the DVSAs three exams. They are, a hundred question theory test, a pass was 85%, a driving test, and then the killer, a test of instructional ability. Most could pass the first two without too much problem, but the last was the one most failed on. Three fails at any one of these and you had to go back and retake all again. All this, and yet this guy was charging £16 per hour. This meant that even the top grade instructors were struggling to charge anything more than £25 per hour.
