Here are some of the main reasons we feel we are a great choice for your driving school franchise:
- NO CHARGE UNTIL YOU HAVE YOUR 10TH PUPIL
As a driving instructor myself, I know how hard those first few weeks can be, whether you are just starting out in this career or simply changing from another driving school, A short break in your costs until you have some money coming in is a big help.
We don't believe in tying you into long restricting contracts. We want you to stay with our driving school because it works for you and us both.
You can use your own Dual controlled car as long as it is insured and in good working order - Or if you like then you can lease a brand new vehicle from us.
- FULL VEHICLE GRAPHICS inc, YOUR NAME ON THE DOOR
We will supply and pay for full vehicle graphics to your car to help you stand out from the crowd - You can even have your own personal name on the front doors, so everyone gets to know who you are and not just the driving school.
All our driving lessons are pre-pay at the time of booking. This one simple thing has led to less late cancellations and almost a complete stop to no shows - on average we have calculated that this one thing alone, saves our instructors around £2800 a year each.
- WHEN YOU CALL HEAD OFFICE
Unlike some of the bigger driving schools, when you call head office our customer team will know who you are and you will come to know them too - With our driving school, you are part of a valued team and not just another number.
As part of the team, you will have the direct contact numbers for the office team and both Managing Directors - we will be here almost 24 hours a day to answer your questions and help you with anything work related, and we are happy to help you with any of lives other issues that come your way as well if need be.
- FREE STANDARDS CHECK TRAINING
All of our team members are entitled to FREE standards check training with a member of our Instructor Training team - This can be 1-2-1 in car training or class room training if you prefer.
We have recently started using the TOTAL DRIVE diary system within our driving school which supersedes our previous online diary system. Having an online diary system allows our team at head office to book customers into your diary and get payment while the customer is still on the phone. The diary system comes with a whole host of features including a pupil app and SMS messages to remind pupils about lessons. It also allows you to record the pupils progress saving you a lot of untidy paperwork to lug around.
We think its important that standards are maintained and as with all walks of life we will all have different strengths and weaknesses, so we offer one CPD training course each year for our franchises ADI's. This can be anything from a First Aid Course, Taxi Training Course, Train The Trainer Courses or Business Development Training that are available through ourselves and external sources.
Possibly one of the most important aspects of any driving school franchise, pupil supply. We don't have any limits on the amount of new pupils we send your way. All will be booked and confirmed paid up customers, booked directly into your diary in your available working space.
We feel lesson prices should be at the higher end of the scale when we are aiming to deliver a great customer learning experience. We feel it gives our team greater enthusiasm to deliver greater results to their customers and in return generate an amazing reputation for high standards and quality.
We do set our lesson prices high but as always we are open for discussion form you on this subject, we work as a team but if you feel you can charge more for your lessons then please let us know. Current hourly rate for Automatic lessons in Bristol: £35ph
- MARKETING TO OUR POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS
We use varying methods of advertising to attract new customers to our driving school, be it through social media, Google Adwords, natural website listings, on car graphics, local radio ads, community magazines or in person at one of our local fetes and shows. We have the experience of running a successful driving school over the past 11 years and we have an experienced marketing team to make sure you remain busy in both good and bad times. Even if the sun ever stops shining on the driving instructor industry, we will still be fighting your corner to bring in the pupils to make sure are team are amongst the busiest school out there.
