Working with Us

Be your own boss while working in Association with Us


Martin Cohen the business owner, having worked in the driving school business since 2003, first started this driving school in 2006, and over the years had a number of instructors working within this driving school. Then in 2014 for 5 years was regional owner / manager with another driving school where a number of Driving Instructor’s worked within that organisation.

In 2019, I relaunched my own driving school and with my years of experience of being a driving Instructor, Instructor Trainer and management of instructor franchises. I designed this service based on what I believe instructors are looking for. Where most driving schools operate under a work for them within a franchise we don’t, you can carry on running your own business working in association with us.

First 3 months at half price

Our monthly fee are paid in advance and are based on what you charge for a prepaid 2 hour lesson per week, times by 4 to give you your monthly charge, this taking into account 4 weeks a year free holidays. So you only need to work 2 hours each week to cover your fees, for example if your charge £64 for a 2 hour lesson your monthly fee would be £256, we guarantee not to change this price structure for the whole time you work with us, so our fees will only go up when your lesson prices go up.

You will need your own car, if you haven’t got your own car suitable for driving tuition, there are number of options, you could buy a new or second hand car, a number of car manufacturers offer driving school packages or there are a number of companies that can lease cars to driving instructors.

No lengthy contract

We do operate using a contract, but should you ever wish to leave all we require is a minimum of 1 full months notice. You also get to keep all pupils that we have introduced to you and we won’t charge you for this.

Up to £480 Bonus at Christmas time

This is based on the number of weeks worked, where you have paid full price on time. Full T&C’s are written in our contract.

Still trade under your own driving school name

A lot of Instructors like the idea of running their own driving school, most other driving school franchises expect you to trade under their name, when in effect you are just paying them a fee for a service to support your own business, while they still expecting you to get your own pupils.

Our driving school is different, you are paying us a service fee, and in return we provide your business with extra support.
