Driving instructor franchise with DRIVE 321

Become part of a driving instructor franchise that guarantees you between 10 and 15 new pupils in two weeks. We're so confident you'll be satisfied that we offer all of our franchisees a free trial so they can see just how many pupils they'll get when working with us.

Our team of dedicated driving instructors is growing rapidly and it's no accident. Our full-time office team are available to you 7 days a week to help you manage and maintain your bookings, as well as being there to support you and offer guidance when you need it.

We don't plaster your car in sign writing, vinyls or decoration - just a magnetic roof sign and/or side panels. We know that quality instructors don't want to drive around with deals splashed all over their cars. All we ask is you use our roof sign when teaching your pupils.

What you will get with a DRIVE 321 instructor franchise

  • No obligation 2 week FREE trial so you can see how many pupils we can get you in a short space of time and get a feel for how we do things at DRIVE 321.

  • Long term commitment free - we only require 4 weeks notices if you join after the free trial then decide to leave.

  • If you decide not to join us after the trial, you won't have lost anything and we'll let you keep any pupils you gained from us during the 2 weeks.

  • In the majority of areas across the UK, instructors on our franchise trail can expect to receive between 10 and 15 pupils in just 2 weeks!

  • Our office team will always work hard to keep you busy and ensure that you have an ongoing pupil supply. If your diary isn't always full, we fully expect you to leave.

  • Our options include a pupil only franchise if you already have your own vehicle suitable for teaching in. We also offer franchise options which include a car.

  • Flexible pupil booking approach - we can accommodate any pupil preferences you have, location and preferred working hours.

  • Free additional pupil introduction - with our franchise, you won't have to pay a pupil introduction fee. As a weekly franchise, we think this is unfair to instructors.

No sign writing on your car

With a DRIVE 321 franchise, you won't have to have sign writing all over your car. We understand many of our instructors use their cars outside of work and may not want to drive around with writing all over their car.

We just ask our instructors to use our roof sign when teaching pupils. Once you're finished teaching for the day, you can remove your roof sign and switch off.

Bringing driving lessons into the 21st Century

With DRIVE 321 driving school franchise, you will benefit from being with a driving school that keeps up-to-date with the latest modern technologies.

Using our purpose-built instructor app, you can manage every aspect of your franchise, from booking pupils in, changing your working hours and even managing your finances.

You can also provide feedback and updates to your pupils and view your pupil passes.

What are the franchise options?

Franchise Option 1

Pupil only franchise - you provide your own vehicle.

Our franchise is extremely cheap for the amount of pupils you will be offered weekn in, week out.

The price will vary slightly depending on your location and how many hours you want to work per week.

It's important that the numbers work financially for you as well as us, otherwise it'll never work out in the long term, leaving you considering your options again.

Franchise Option 2

If you would like us to provide the car as well, we can do this for you. Again, we are a lot cheaper than most national companies.

You can typically choose from the following vehicles: Vauxhall Corsa, Ford Fiesta, Citroen DS3, Peugeot 208, Toyota Yaris and more. If you would rather a vehicle such as a Mini Cooper, Audi A1/A3 or BMW 1 Series, this is also possible.

If you choose the franchise option with a car, then we ask for 3 months notice to leave. However, if you have your own vehicle, the minimum notice to leave is just 4 weeks (as low as 2 in some areas).
