Multi-car franchising

Most UK driving instructors either operate as a “sole-trader” driving school on their own, or by working as a self-employed instructor for a larger driving school. But some aspire to recruit and train a number of their own instructors to become “multi-car driving school owners” in their own right.

They go on to develop their business, possibly providing training to other potential driving instructors, as well as developing a route to their local market to attract learner drivers through branding, advertising and marketing, with the aim of provide a regular stream of new pupils to keep their instructors working, and hopefully expanding their own brand even further.

However, to set up a successful multi-car driving school in this way, there’s also the need for an administrative infrastructure and support systems. This often means either intrusive demands on the owner’s home life, or the need to incur additional costs for an office with staff, often soaking up any profit that a driving school with less that a dozen or so cars might manage. It can be expensive, time-consuming and call for greater resources than most individual driving instructors can muster. This is where an A2Z of Motoring Business Format Franchise can deliver even more than a standard own-brand format.

A2Z uses industry leader Driving Instructor Services to deal with its calls between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. every weekday, and on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. By advertising a non-geographic Freephone number, and mobile-friendly “03” number, new and existing pupils can be sure to get through to a live industry-specific receptionist, who can advise, book and alter appointments on behalf of any instructor under the A2Z brand.

If you’re a qualified driving instructor who might be interested in recruiting and training instructors of your own, investing in marketing and promoting that business under the A2Z brand, and eventually taking on a managerial role by developing a driving school business format, you might like to call us for a chat. Phone 01792 870701 and ask for Kevin.
