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 Ellesmere Driving Instructor Franchise?

Smart Drive UK does not support driving instructor franchise contracts that offer as low as one student per week and contracts without any guarantees. The company offers a franchise agreement that ensures ADIs are in full control without any financial outlays. The company has made a name in ensuring ADIs remain with them by choice instead of being tied down by a contract.

Unless required by student demand, Smart Drive UK will not hire more driving instructor franchisees in Ellesmere to compete with you. Most Driving Instructors in Ellesmere that join the Smart Drive UK Franchise go on to remain with the company on a long-term basis. 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 sign up for a Driving Instructor Franchise in Ellesmere?

Starting your own business or signing up for a franchise are the two main routes available to any newly qualified driving instructor. There are considerations to be made on each side of the divide, and the ultimate decision is down to you as the ADI. Choosing to run your own driving school comes with its own unique set of challenges. 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. 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. For many ADIs, earning a full-time income quickly is a top priority thus making the first few months or years as an ADI turbulent. The main way to start earning immediately is to participate in a franchise such as the Smart Drive UK Ellesmere driving instructor franchise.

How to find a profitable Ellesmere driving instructor franchise

Your decision on the driving instructor franchise in Ellesmere to go with must not be made lightly.

Making a mistake with the selection process could mean losing time and money. It is easy to get engrossed with some of the well-known names, but some of the more local names can yield better results.

The primary reason for this is that local companies have been around your target area and must have built a reputation with local people. A constant supply of driving school pupils is only second to the actual contract when it comes to a franchise agreement.

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.
