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.

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.

Why Choose Smart Drive UK for Erdington 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. With the contract, approved driving instructors are always in control of what happens during their stay with the company. The company has made a name in ensuring ADIs remain with them by choice instead of being tied down by a contract.

Smart Drive UK does not hire multiple driving instructors in Erdington unless demand for instructors requires more instructors. Most Driving Instructors in Erdington that join the Smart Drive UK Franchise go on to remain with the company on a long-term basis. The company is devoted to filling the diaries of ADIs under their franchise and offers a guarantee to provide a minimum number of pupils based on reliable estimates.

Why is a Driving Instructor Franchise in Erdington a good idea?

One of the decisions you have to make as a newly qualified instructor is whether to set up your own business as an independent instructor or to take on a driving instructor franchise. 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. Recommendation is vital for any ADI seeking a decent supply of pupils. You have to build a positive reputation over a period of time before you can reap the benefits of recommendations.

Getting the right number of pupils requires building a website, engaging potential students on social media and investing in various forms of marketing. Many ADIs do not have what it takes to draw new pupils in the early days of their driving school and make a profit, so for this reason many struggle. Becoming a part of a franchise like the Smart Drive UK Erdington driving instructor franchise gives ADIs the opportunity to start earning money immediately while gradually building their own business.

How to find a profitable Erdington driving instructor franchise

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

The wrong choice of franchise will not only lead to stagnant or non-existent earnings, but you could also lose money from your pocket. Don’t ignore local driving schools when looking for franchise opportunities even in the presence of some of the more popular names.

The primary reason for this is that local companies have been around your target area and must have built a reputation with local people. The franchise contract is the first factor considered when settling for a driving instructor franchise agreement, but a steady supply of pupils should be a close second.

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.
