Safedrive Driving School - Driving Instructor Franchises, Jobs and Vacancies for ADIs and PDIs

In order to meet increased pupil demand we are pleased to announce our new driving instructor franchise plans for 2016.

We are in a unique position that 70% of our instructors are now full and running a waiting list of pupils waiting to start. The remaining are either on a build up or just need one or two replacement pupils in order to replace test passes. This puts us in the situation that we are turning away work all over the UK.

To promote growth we have an exciting new package that we are sure that will tempt you designed on based on many years of feedback from driving instructors across the UK. Our package for 2016* has just a four week notice period with no long term tie in. We are that confident with the supply of work we can provide in your local area that you will want to stay with us, that you can hand in 4 weeks notice at any time after your initial two free build up weeks. Unlike other companies, we give you the freedom to use whichever car suits you.

 There are no catches and nothing to hide - if you want to speak to a Safedrive instructor to see what we are like, just ask us when you enquire.

We have built a reputation for being a fair and honest company to work with -for example we only take on instructors in areas we feel we can offer them the full service you deserve.

Driving Instructor Testimonials

"I am into my 6th year with Safedrive.  I chose them because they seemed friendly and efficient and after visiting the office I felt comfortable with the staff and the set up.  I do a weekly return so they know on a weekly basis if I need new pupils or not and they usually get me the number of pupils needed pretty quickly.  I run my own diary to fit in with family and other commitments and I like it that way.

When I call the office the staff are very friendly and efficient, most of my contact is e-mail which I find useful.  They have been very supportive as being self employed can be quite scary and they are not pushy.

It's nice being my own boss but having the back up of Safedrive has given me peace of mind." 
 Karen, Driving Instructor from Rotherham

I have been with Safedrive since June of 2014. First and foremost I was looking for a franchise that would keep me busy and not cost a fortune. Let me say on both counts Safedrive has been fantastic. 

It took a few weeks for the pupils to start coming, I am in an area that has not had Safedrive coverage before, but since then there has been a steady supply. On some occasions I have had to ask them to hold back on referrals as a result of being so busy that I could not cope and then after a batch of passes I have been provided with more pupils when requested.

The whole team have been very supportive and make me feel like an individual they care for and not a number. Whenever I have wanted to speak to people they have made themselves available, always been 100% professional, listened to my needs and reacted to requests straightaway.

I did a lot of research in to franchises available before joining Safedrive and I am pleased to say that I would not change my mind nearly a year on.
Duncan, Driving Instructor from Hereford 

I was starting to consider giving up as a Driving instructor. I had tried Franchises with two of the biggest UK driving schools and neither was a pleasant experience.  Neither seemed to appreciate it was meant to be a partnership arrangement where you paid a Franchise fee and they supplied students.  In both cases quality students were thin on the ground and you often found yourself working just to pay their franchise.  Also, they seem to treat you like an employee and regularly made the same sort of demands an employer would. The difference of course being you paid them, not the other way round.

By contrast Safedrive are real, REAL easy to deal with, no nonsense call centres making crazy time consuming demands, no managers treating you like an employee, no pointless pressure.  However, they give you as much business as you can handle.  In my three years there I've never found myself short of students as long as I gave them enough notice to crank up the marketing.

But above all they are just very nice people to deal with.Alan, Driving Instructor from Cumbernauld


Safedrive was recommended to me by a former tutor. He said they were very supportive and were always willing to take on trainee licence holders.

I immediately gave them a call and spoke to George who is the founder of Safedrive, who then arranged to come down from Chesterfield to see me.

Couldn't have met a nicer person he was very understanding the fact this was my second time around at becoming an ADI and promised to give me any help and support that I may need. This was fulfilled he put me on to a trainer, and as a company have kept me supplied with pupils. 

Safedrive as a company have been very supportive through out and if I have needed any advice there has been somebody on the end of the phone to help.

Now fully Qualified they continue to support and keep me well supplied with pupils.Andy, Driving Instructor from Chippenham

After moving to a new area, I was finding it difficult to source new pupils. Once I joined Safedrive, this was a problem of the past. Safedrive also helped me by extending the 5 week franchise free period. I have only been with Safedrive for a few months, I am looking forward to staying for a lot longer.Neil, Driving Instructor from Livingston

I joined Safedrive as a newly qualified instructor last May. I spoke to a few schools including some of the bigger ones but found Safedrive to be very friendly and professional with their approach to instructors and I really enjoyed the personal touch that they delivered. They've been supportive but not intrusive and have helped me develop my business and confidence.
