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.

What is the Smart Drive UK Ferndown Driving Instructor Franchise Advantage?

Smart Drive UK’s driving instructor franchise contracts are carefully formulated to make sure ADIs are not mandated to stick to contracts offering less than one student a week. No financial commitments are needed on the part of ADIs, and the company ensures total control for drivers as well. The company has become a respected name in the industry because franchisees are never held against their will to a contract.

With Smart Drive UK, there is no issue of dealing with multiple instructors in Ferndown unless the company can guarantee an adequate number of students. The company’s brand of driving instructor franchise means that they have many satisfied franchisees without any reasons to look elsewhere. To further show their commitment towards providing a steady stream of income for driving instructors, the company offers a guarantee on pupil numbers.

Why sign up for a Driving Instructor Franchise in Ferndown?

Starting your own business or signing up for a franchise are the two main routes available to any newly qualified driving instructor. There are advantages to each route taken which further toughens the selection process. When running your own driving school business, some bottlenecks must be navigated. Recommendation is vital for any ADI seeking a decent supply of pupils. 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 new ADIs, earning a full-time income is important. Hence they are unable to cope with the early pressure of sourcing pupils while spreading the word about their new driving school. The Smart Drive UK Ferndown driving instructor franchise presents an opportunity for a full diary within weeks of becoming an ADI.

How to find a profitable Ferndown driving instructor franchise

You have to ensure due diligence when picking a Ferndown Driving Instructor Franchise as you can’t afford to make any mistakes.

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. Aside from the contract, the frequency of pupil supply is the next thing you should be concerned about.

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.
