    I'm highly interested in driving as a job, what's the more realistic options here except from the obvious 'royal mail delivery driver' and the impossible 'automotive journalist'

    Thanks

    Drive a bus/coach or a lorry.

    Those make far more money.

    Otherwise train up as a chauffeur, more particularly a Rolls Royce chauffeur. This one will take some years of driving lesser cars before you would ever be considered for such a job though.

    One where you're trained and driving passengers will pay decently. Having your own van for delivery work will also allow you to make good money but you've got to have public liability insurance, goods insurance and all that.

    I was a VIP chauffeur at the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Audi A8, €50 tips, hanging out at Fan Fests while passengers watched the games... one of the best student jobs I had. Just the 5am airport runs were annoying.

    You could consider a job where you drive alongside doing other stuff, because driving all day is quite boring and tiring after a while. Something like the emergency services might be good.

    This is VERY appealing to me but you gotta be over 23, I'm 20 and apparently the reviews of this on Indeed are very bad.

    This one is a bloody tiring and frustrating job. This is especially so when you get a trip where it isn't a key-for-key and have to shuffle between places on public transport or "plating" to get to your next job or home. You don't really make that good money either.
