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 Northallerton Driving Instructor Franchise?

With Smart Drive UK, there is no risk of subscribing to a driving instructor franchise contract that is detrimental to your overall profitability as an ADI. No financial commitments are needed on the part of ADIs, and the company ensures total control for drivers as well. They have made a name in the business by being one of the few companies where franchisees can leave when they want.

Importantly, Smart Drive UK will not hire multiple driving instructors in your area in Northallerton unless they are confident about providing a steady supply of students. Driving instructors in Northallerton stay with Smart Drive UK on a long-term basis due to their unique advantages. The company is one of the few that provides guarantees to driving instructors on pupil numbers further highlighting their commitment to ensuring profitability.

Why sign up for a Driving Instructor Franchise in Northallerton?

After becoming an approved driving instructor, becoming a driving instructor franchisee or starting up your own business are two main options available to you. There are positives to both sides of the argument, so the option you go for at the end of the day will be dependent on your particular situation. To run your own driving school business, there is a set of challenges that must be navigated. 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.

Drawing pupils could require building a social media presence, building a website and spending a decent sum on marketing in various media. Most ADIs do not have what it takes to draw new pupils and still stay in profit in their first few years. Hence they struggle. Joining a franchise like the Smart Drive UK Northallerton driving instructor franchise, on the other hand, makes it possible to start earning right away and ensure a full diary as fast as possible.

Top tips for finding a profitable Northallerton driving instructor franchise

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

The primary reason why you need to carefully select your company of choice is the fact that most contracts are long term without any easy get-out clause. Big national companies are attractive because of their popularity, but local driving instructor franchise providers could serve you better.

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.

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.
