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.

Why Join a Smart Drive UK Walkden Driving Instructor Franchise?

With Smart Drive UK, ADIs won’t have to worry about getting tied to non-productive driving instructor franchise contracts. With the contract, approved driving instructors are always in control of what happens during their stay with the company. 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 Walkden unless the company can guarantee an adequate number of students. Driving instructors in Walkden stay with Smart Drive UK on a long-term basis due to their unique advantages. 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 are Driving Instructor Franchises in Walkden a very good idea?

All newly qualified driving instructors have to choose between signing up for a franchise or starting their own business soon after qualification. There are advantages to each route taken which further toughens the selection process. Choosing to run your own driving school comes with its own unique set of challenges. For every ADI, the key to a steady supply of pupils is maintaining a healthy base of satisfied pupils that can do word of mouth marketing. Recommendations will only come after you have built a positive reputation over a period of time.

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. Becoming a part of a franchise like the Smart Drive UK Walkden driving instructor franchise gives ADIs the opportunity to start earning money immediately while gradually building their own business.

Top tips for finding a profitable Walkden driving instructor franchise

When you make the decision to join a driving instructor franchise in Walkden, you have to carefully pick the right company.

Making a mistake with the selection process could mean losing time and money. The marketing clout of some of the more popular driving school companies can make them a strong option for many people, but in many cases, local businesses yield better results.

Local companies have been around for a while, making them a better option for a steady supply of pupils. A constant supply of driving school pupils is only second to the actual contract when it comes to a franchise agreement.

Smart Drive

Without pupils, you can’t earn so be certain to confirm the situation and seek guarantees where possible. If you are looking for a Walkden driving instructor franchise that ticks all the right boxes, contact Smart Drive UK today.

FAQ’s

Can I take a break off after qualifying?
Some driving instructors build up their business slowly part-time alongside a full-time job to remove any risk financially. We will support you in your process to reach your goals.
Is full-time driving instruction of 40 hours or more per week a business with 40 pupils per week?
We encourage students to take lessons lasting and in 20 minutes (2 hours). 20 pupils are normally enough to be a full-time teacher with Smart Drive UK. In between lessons, travel time will be needed. We build multi-of learner drivers by encouraging block bookings.
Numbers of clients will Smart Drive UK give me?
Our advertising campaigns run throughout the year on a local and national basis positioning Smart Drive UK as a leader in local driving school provision. You can also promote your driving instructor business through our time-tested advice, resources, and marketing materials.
Is there a charge for supplying students?
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.
