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 go with a Smart Drive UK Retford Driving Instructor Franchise?

Smart Drive UK offers only driving instructor franchise contracts that are beneficial to ADIs. 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.

Unless required by student demand, Smart Drive UK will not hire more driving instructor franchisees in Retford to compete with you. 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 Retford. 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 is a Driving Instructor Franchise in Retford a good idea?

One of the decisions you have to make as a newly qualified instructor is whether to set up your own business as an independent instructor or to take on a driving instructor franchise. The final decisions will come down to you the ADI as each side of the divide has advantages. When running your own driving school business, some bottlenecks must be navigated. Recommendations and referrals are your best bet to getting new clients as an ADI. Marketing and a positive reputation, both long-term factors, are needed to be able to gain recommendations.

Drawing pupils could require building a social media presence, building a website and spending a decent sum on marketing in various media. For many new ADIs, earning a full-time income is important. Hence they are unable to cope with the early pressure of sourcing pupils while spreading the word about their new driving school. The main way to start earning immediately is to participate in a franchise such as the Smart Drive UK Retford driving instructor franchise.

Choosing your Retford Driving Instructor Franchise

When choosing a driving instructor franchise in Retford to join, you need to ensure you have made the right decision.

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. Alongside the franchise contract, a steady supply of work is the next vital factor when choosing to go with a particular driving instructor franchise.

Smart Drive

Without pupils, you can’t earn so be certain to confirm the situation and seek guarantees where possible. Smart Drive UK has all the features of a top driving instructor franchise in Retford so get in touch with them right away.

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.
