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 Burford Driving Instructor Franchise Advantage?

With Smart Drive UK, ADIs won’t have to worry about getting tied to non-productive driving instructor franchise contracts. The company offers a franchise agreement that ensures ADIs are in full control without any financial outlays. Franchisees with the company enjoy flexibility as they can elect to leave at any point in time.

With Smart Drive UK, there is no issue of dealing with multiple instructors in Burford unless the company can guarantee an adequate number of students. The company’s brand of driving instructor franchise means that they have many satisfied franchisees without any reasons to look elsewhere. ADIs have full diaries with Smart Drive UK, and the company offers a guarantee on the minimum number of pupils per instructor.

Why is a Driving Instructor Franchise in Burford 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. 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. Every ADI relies on recommendation for their supply of pupils. It takes time to build the reputation and engage in the right level of marketing to make your driving school recommendations work.

You will need to spend money on marketing, create a website and build social media presence to effectively draw 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. The Smart Drive UK Burford driving instructor franchise presents an opportunity for a full diary within weeks of becoming an ADI.

Choosing your Burford Driving Instructor Franchise

You have to ensure due diligence when picking a Burford 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. Don’t ignore local driving schools when looking for franchise opportunities even in the presence of some of the more popular names.

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. The franchise contract is the first factor considered when settling for a driving instructor franchise agreement, but a steady supply of pupils should be a close second.

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.
