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.

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.
