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 Orpington Driving Instructor Franchise Advantage?

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. Franchisees remain with Smart Drive UK out of their own volition.

Importantly, Smart Drive UK will not hire multiple driving instructors in your area in Orpington unless they are confident about providing a steady supply of students. It is no surprise that most approved driving instructor franchisees in Orpington stay with the company for long periods. To further show their commitment towards providing a steady stream of income for driving instructors, the company offers a guarantee on pupil numbers.

Why Should ADIs embrace a Driving Instructor Franchises in Orpington?

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. Running your own driving school comes with some unique challenges. Recommendations and referrals are your best bet to getting new clients as an ADI. It takes time to build the reputation and engage in the right level of marketing to make your driving school recommendations work.

Marketing, new website creation, and social media marketing are just some of the things you must do to bring in prospective students. 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. Becoming a part of a franchise like the Smart Drive UK Orpington driving instructor franchise gives ADIs the opportunity to start earning money immediately while gradually building their own business.

Choosing the Orpington Driving Instructor Franchise to work with

When choosing a driving instructor franchise in Orpington 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. 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. 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.
