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 are the Benefits of the Smart Drive UK Harleston Driving Instructor Franchise?

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. ADIs are in total control and are not required to make any financial commitments with a contract from the company. They have made a name in the business by being one of the few companies where franchisees can leave when they want.

Smart Drive UK franchisees never have to worry about extra competition from other franchisees because the company only takes on new instructors when student numbers dictate. Most Driving Instructors in Harleston that join the Smart Drive UK Franchise go on to remain with the company on a long-term basis. The company is one of the few that provides guarantees to driving instructors on pupil numbers further highlighting their commitment to ensuring profitability.

Why are Driving Instructor Franchises in Harleston a very good idea?

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 final decisions will come down to you the ADI as each side of the divide has advantages. Running your own driving school comes with some unique 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. This requires strong marketing and a stellar reputation, which takes time to develop.

Getting the right number of pupils requires building a website, engaging potential students on social media and investing in various forms of marketing. This is why many ADIs don’t find it easy in the first few months or years of starting their own driving school. The main way to start earning immediately is to participate in a franchise such as the Smart Drive UK Harleston driving instructor franchise.

How to find a profitable Harleston driving instructor franchise

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

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.

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. A constant supply of driving school pupils is only second to the actual contract when it comes to a franchise agreement.

FAQ’s

Can I take a break off after qualifying?

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.
