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 is a Driving Instructor Franchise in York a good idea?

All newly qualified driving instructors have to determine if they will go the driving instructor franchise route or start their own business from scratch. The final decisions will come down to you the ADI as each side of the divide has advantages. Running your own driving school comes with some unique challenges. ADIs that have a steady supply of pupils know that recommendations are vital. You have to build a positive reputation over a period of time before you can reap the benefits of recommendations.

Getting the right number of pupils requires building a website, engaging potential students on social media and investing in various forms of marketing. 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 York driving instructor franchise.

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.
