Our intention is to get you as busy as you want to be as quickly as possible. Unlike some other driving schools we do not operate as a franchise. All payments to us are on a commission only basis. We will discuss this with you in more detail at the time of your interview, but we promise you that our commission rates are one of the lowest rates you can find anywhere.
We will not only help you train to become a driving instructor. We can also help with advice and guidance regarding decisions that you may need to make in the day-to-day life as a driving instructor. These decisions can be very confusing to the newly qualified ADI who is often self-employed for the very first time. We have many connections within both the driving school and driving instructor training industry and we promise to help every pupil with the following:
We will help you with the free loan of all ADI training materials that you require when you train to become a driving instructor, such as books, study material, audio advice tapes, cd-rom's and videos. We will also supply you with lesson plans and diagrams for you to use on the ADI Part 3 exam known as the instructional ability test.
We can help you in your decision as to which cars are ideal as driving school cars and more importantly which ones are definitely not. Which motor dealers may be running driving school offers, and advice as to how you could get a better deal from them Have you ever noticed how certain driving school cars stand out more than others, we can help you get noticed?
We have connections with a number of driving school car leasing companies. These companies can supply you with a brand new driving school vehicle that will come fitted with dual controls along with a full service/maintenance package and breakdown cover from a main dealer. You can usually lease a car for one year without a deposit. There are certain tax advantages for self-employed driving instructors who lease their vehicles rather than them purchasing one.
If you decide to purchase your own driving school vehicle we can give you advice on dual controls and where you can get them fitted professionally. Certain makes of car are more expensive to fit dual controls in than others, we can give you advice about this and also the possibility of where you can get good quality second hand controls at greatly reduced prices.
