Why Choose Us?

We undestand the risk to yourself of commiting to a contract that has either no guarantee of providing a specifc number of pupils or some that promise to give you only 50 pupils per year (that’s less than one per week). That is why we have created a NO Risk Franchise that leaves you in control and no financial risk to you. We want you to join and stay with us not because the contract term says you must but because you want to, and you love what we do for you, and we will not recruit another driving Instructor in your area unless we have to turn away business because you are too busy and need support. We do not have any sales teams so don’t worry just our family members explaining what we do.

97% of Driving Instructors that started with us on our trial period decided to stay with us. The other 3% left due to personal circumstances and not because of the service we provided. Filling your diary quickly is our highest priority and we will GUARANTEE a minimum number of pupils that will be given to you.

Why Choose Smart Drive UK for Reading Driving Instructor Franchise?

Smart Drive UK does not support driving instructor franchise contracts that offer as low as one student per week and contracts without any guarantees. ADIs are in total control and are not required to make any financial commitments with a contract from the company. The company has become a respected name in the industry because franchisees are never held against their will to a contract.

Importantly, Smart Drive UK will not hire multiple driving instructors in your area in Reading unless they are confident about providing a steady supply of students. Most Driving Instructors in Reading that join the Smart Drive UK Franchise go on to remain with the company on a long-term basis. The company is one of the few that provides guarantees to driving instructors on pupil numbers further highlighting their commitment to ensuring profitability.

Why are Driving Instructor Franchises in Reading a very good idea?

All newly qualified driving instructors have to determine if they will go the driving instructor franchise route or start their own business from scratch. The decision is a hard one as there are many benefits to each side of the argument. Different challenges face any newly qualified drivers that decides to start their own businesses. ADIs that have a steady supply of pupils know that recommendations are vital. Marketing and a positive reputation, both long-term factors, are needed to be able to gain recommendations.

Drawing pupils could require building a social media presence, building a website and spending a decent sum on marketing in various media. For many ADIs, earning a full-time income quickly is a top priority thus making the first few months or years as an ADI turbulent. Joining a franchise like the Smart Drive UK Reading driving instructor franchise, on the other hand, makes it possible to start earning right away and ensure a full diary as fast as possible.

How to find a profitable Reading driving instructor franchise

When choosing a driving instructor franchise in Reading to join, you need to ensure you have made the right decision.

The primary reason why you need to carefully select your company of choice is the fact that most contracts are long term without any easy get-out clause. It is easy to get engrossed with some of the well-known names, but some of the more local names can yield better results.

Pupils in the area will want to go with a local company that has been around for a while instead of a big name company with offices far away. A constant supply of driving school pupils is only second to the actual contract when it comes to a franchise agreement.

Smart Drive

You should seek reassurances on the supply of pupils to be certain about profitability as an ADI that is part of a franchise. Smart Drive UK has all the features of a top driving instructor franchise in Reading so get in touch with them right away.

FAQ’s

Can I take a break off after qualifying?
Some driving instructors build up their business slowly part-time alongside a full-time job to remove any risk financially. We will support you in your process to reach your goals.
Is full-time driving instruction of 40 hours or more per week a business with 40 pupils per week?
We encourage students to take lessons lasting and in 20 minutes (2 hours). 20 pupils are normally enough to be a full-time teacher with Smart Drive UK. In between lessons, travel time will be needed. We build multi-of learner drivers by encouraging block bookings.
Numbers of clients will Smart Drive UK give me?
Our advertising campaigns run throughout the year on a local and national basis positioning Smart Drive UK as a leader in local driving school provision. You can also promote your driving instructor business through our time-tested advice, resources, and marketing materials.
Is there a charge for supplying students?
You will not have to pay to get more students.
Will I be employed by Smart Drive UK?
No. Both independent driving schools and franchised driving instructors tend to be self-employed in the UK. Driving instructors have the benefit of being their boss.

You choose your work hours and organise your schedule to fit around your life. Driving instructors value the flexibility of the hours and the schedule; flexibility that is found in few other careers.

The nature of self-employed businesses is that the more you are willing to invest in terms of your time and energy the more you will get out in terms of financial rewards and job satisfaction.
