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 Thame 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. They are one of the few driving instructor franchise providers where ADIs are in control of what happens with their contracts. They have made a name in the business by being one of the few companies where franchisees can leave when they want.

With Smart Drive UK, there is no issue of dealing with multiple instructors in Thame unless the company can guarantee an adequate number 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 Thame. 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 Should ADIs embrace a Driving Instructor Franchises in Thame?

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 advantages to each route taken which further toughens the selection process. Running your own driving school comes with some unique challenges. 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.

You will have to participate in different forms of marketing, create a website and have some presence on social media to draw prospective driving school 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 Thame driving instructor franchise presents an opportunity for a full diary within weeks of becoming an ADI.

Choosing the Thame Driving Instructor Franchise to work with

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

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. The most popular driving schools can grab all the attention, but it is always important to check local options.

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. Aside from the contract, the frequency of pupil supply is the next thing you should be concerned about.

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.
