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 Should ADIs embrace a Driving Instructor Franchises in London?

After becoming an approved driving instructor, becoming a driving instructor franchisee or starting up your own business are two main options available to you. 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. Every ADI relies on recommendation for their supply of pupils. You have to build a positive reputation over a period of time before you can reap the benefits of recommendations.

You will have to participate in different forms of marketing, create a website and have some presence on social media to draw prospective driving school pupils. 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. This is where joining a franchise such as the Smart Drive UK London driving instructor franchise makes sense.

How to find a profitable London driving instructor franchise

You have to ensure due diligence when picking a London 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. Big national companies are attractive because of their popularity, but local driving instructor franchise providers could serve you better.

The local companies have been on the ground for years and thus have local networks in place for a steady supply of pupils. Alongside the franchise contract, a steady supply of work is the next vital factor when choosing to go with a particular driving instructor franchise.

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.
