When you’re thinking about your career you probably think of education, training or work experience. You perhaps don’t think of a driver’s licence, however being able to drive is one of the most in demand skills of all and not having a licence can, in fact, limit your job prospects.
Many jobs are obviously dependant on being able to drive. These include delivery jobs, mobile library work, taxi driving, truck driving etc etc. Without a licence, you are considerably lessening the pool of jobs that you can apply for.
Many more jobs prefer applicants who are able to drive. Actually it might be fair to say that most jobs would prefer an applicant who is able to drive. Even very high profile jobs, such as medical jobs, prefer it when applicants have a driving licence, for example if they need to drive to meet patients .
In business, whilst a job advert might not explicitly say a driver’s licence is necessary an employer will ideally want someone who has a licence. This is because those who can drive are more versatile in how they are able to work. In other words, being able to drive is a very useful skill that employers of all kinds look very positively on.
There is obviously a cost involved in learning to drive however because it’s a qualification so valuable it’s definitely worth it. If you live in the South London area why not search for driving schools Croyden or driving lessons Sutton.
