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 Higham-Ferrers 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 Higham-Ferrers unless they are confident about providing a steady supply of students. With the company’s mode of operations, it is easy to see why they are top on the list for ADIs looking for driving instructor franchise opportunities in Higham-Ferrers. To further show their commitment towards providing a steady stream of income for driving instructors, the company offers a guarantee on pupil numbers.

Why is a Driving Instructor Franchise in Higham-Ferrers a 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 considerations to be made on each side of the divide, and the ultimate decision is down to you as the ADI. To run your own driving school business, there is a set of challenges that must be navigated. Recommendation is vital for any ADI seeking a decent supply of pupils. You have to build a positive reputation over a period of time before you can reap the benefits of recommendations.

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

How to pick a driving instructor franchise in Higham-Ferrers

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

When you choose the wrong franchise, you will be tied to a lengthy contract which could cost you time and money. Don’t ignore local driving schools when looking for franchise opportunities even in the presence of some of the more popular names.

Local businesses already have a strong presence in your target location, making them the more likely option to go with for pupils in the area and nearby. After your franchise agreement, the steady supply of work is the next important factor when picking a driving instructor franchise.

Smart Drive

You should seek reassurances on the supply of pupils to be certain about profitability as an ADI that is part of a franchise. Smart Drive UK understands the requirements for a successful driving instructor franchise career so contact them 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.
