How would I mount a gopro with having an instructor? I think I will be having to drive with an instructor for the next year or maybe a little less. Any ideas?

I've always mounted mine from the sunroof and never had an issue with a passenger. Headrest arm mount would be fine too.

I don't have a sunroof heh, will the headrest arm be far enough away from the passenger?

Edit: https://www.amazon.com/ChargerCity-T...2268580&sr=8-3 looks like it could work

Yup, that's how dbyrd has his camera setup in the video above. Only part of a passenger you would see in the video would be their arm holding the door handle and their legs.

If you use the headrest, be sure to use the driver's side. The weight of the driver dampens vibration. I initially mounted it on the passenger side, and it transfers too much vibration without a passenger.

b4hand - Tackform makes a great mount https://www.tackform.com/collections/vehicle-action-cam and you should be able to position it between you and a passenger and still get a good field of view. I used one while I still had the factory seats in and it stayed locked in place very well - even at Harris Hill pre repave - can't beat that for an endorsement

The other option is mount the cam to someone's old half cage. With a matching set of OMP HTE-R's that are both now ready to find a new home...

This is all RAM stuff. Good price and quality.

+1 for Tackform, the owner is an enthusiast and I've met him a few times. He's in the Chicago suburbs. I used to have the headrest mount that you mention, and since switched to their roll cage mount on my harness bar.
