Elite Franchise

 

Fancy spending half a day with the guys from Elite getting a unique insight into how our driving instructor partner programme works, and benefitting from our knowledge of the industry that'll drive your business forward? 

 

 

Do you find that although you’re very busy, you seem to be earning less money than you should, and working more hours than you probably need to?


What I’d like to do is give you the opportunity to understand what it is we do, and why it’s so effective for ADI’s.

The chances are you’ve never looked at an alternative to where you are now. In truth, most people believe that everyone provides the same level of service only under a different banner, but that’s strictly not true.

Let me be clear right from the start:

  • We’re not going to tell you we are the fastest growing driving school in the UK, no-one really cares?
  • We’re not trying to recruit 50 ADI’s and flood your area. 
  • We’re not going to offer you the usual free BS to get you on board.


It’s worth talking to us because you’ll discover how we help driving instructors become busy, productive people.

We do this by structuring workable postcode areas, where there are plenty of people in a concentrated area requiring driving lessons. This helps instructors maximise the number of customers they fit into a working day, which cuts down on travel and petrol, earning them more money and giving them more of their time to enjoy life.

 It’s a very active time for ADI’s and the demand for driving lessons is evidence that there are more people wanting to learn than there are instructors able to cope.

So if you want your evenings, or weekends back, right now is the best time for you to choose the hours you want to work, and select the customers that can fit in with your availability.

I know this is the reverse of how instructors manage their diaries, and it’s not the traditional method we were taught when we qualified as instructors. But we live in different times.

There’s an enormous amount of help we can give you with the organisation and administration of the work involved in being an ADI, which will help you to get more time back to enjoy life.

 

I know that many instructors have precious little time to do everything for themselves and yet leave some time at the end of the day to spend with their family.


Which is why so many either pay someone else to take care of the organisation and marketing in their business, or join a driving school as a franchisee.

The trouble is, virtually every driving school franchise focuses on providing a car or some pupils, but few barely give any thought to the needs of their instructors.


 

Where not like the rest!

With us you've got experienced staff members working for you while you're out teaching, and the confidience knowing that someone is managing your business interests and helping your reputation grow.


With the right help you can start to regain time in your day without having to do everything yourself.

And because of our market positioning we don't offer ridiculously low deals and we don't expect you to either. We attract people who are prepared to pay extra for a better service.

 

 

"What imptessess me most about Kev's approach is his commitment to us"

 
I have been a driving instructor for 13 years; qualifying and operating a franchise with a large national company. Over recent years I had become disillusioned with the level of commitment to the local area by the company and the amount of business they were generating for me.
 
Through that period I had been aware of Elite and have always been impressed with the satisfaction shown by their franchisees. I heard that Elite were looking for more instructors at about the same time I decided it was time to move on. Following a discussion with a former colleague I contacted Kev at Elite. From there things moved rapidly and I began a franchise with them in March 2015.
 
From the first week my diary was filled with quality pupils and I have been kept busy ever since. Indeed I could easily have many more pupils if I had space in my diary. The office back up is very friendly, efficient but not obtrusive.
 
What impresses me most about Kev's approach is his commitment to us. He has his finger on the local pulse and consequently targets his marketing at the appropriate potential clients.
 
Most impressed so far!
 
 Cheers from Keith

"Since Joining Elite I feel less tired, more motivated"...

Since qualifying as an ADI in October 2010 I had been franchised to a large national driving school. For the last 18 months I had progressively felt undervalued and irrelevant.  During that period I considered going solo or joining an alternative local company. 

Following several favourable chats with Elite driving instructors I decided to contact Kev for the low-down on his company. Kev's enthusiasm and passion plus Pauline's organisational skills shone through convincing that this was my way forward.

Whilst I was initially reluctant for Elite to manage my diary it has turned out to be an asset to my business.  Elite helps me make more effective use of my time as the supplied pupils are now in a more concentrated area. The company is excellent at generating good quality pupils who, on the whole, are committed to learning to drive.

Since joining Elite I feel less tired, more motivated and as a consequence am able to provide a better quality of instruction. Kev & Pauline's approachable and supportive manner lets me know that I am a respected member of the team.

"Gone are the days of just word of mouth"

"My name is Jeannette Pickering after working on my own for 2 years I realised how hard it was to replace pupils once they had passed their test! Gone are the days of just "word of mouth" what I needed was someone to promote my skills. So I met with Kev at Elite and I immediately knew that this was the Driving School for me as Kev explained how the school worked, what was expected of me as a driving instructor, and what I was going to benefit from by joining Elite.
I have now been working for Elite for 18 months and have never looked back! Kev is always at the end of the phone for advice and I know that his commitment to his company is paramount. I look forward to working with Kev in the future."

Hi I'm Kev Goldthorpe, I've been in the driver training industry for over 27 years.

I offer driving instructors an alternative to traditional and often expensive franchise's where the benefits are often heavily weighted in their favour.

I know how difficult this business can be, and how you can spend a lot of your time just playing catch up. 

 

We are on target this year with our expansion plans and we are looking to partner with instructors who want an company to lookafter their business while they focus on providing a quality service to their students.  

 

If you're looking for a business partner to help you run your business smoothly, without committing to an expensive franchise then please give me a call on:

03332 004130

Kev Elite Director

 

We would like to work with instructors in the following areas:

East Hull, West Hull, Hedon area, Beverley and York, Leeds, Lincoln and Sheffield areas

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Franchise working with Elite 

 

 

 

What’s happening with the driving school industry is fascinating, for the first time in years ADI’s have waiting lists as long as their arms. It’s busier than ever which brings extra pressure on instructors and the increased workload can affect the time you have to do the things in life you enjoy.

Many instructors have precious little time to do everything for themselves and yet leave some time at the end of the day to spend with their family.

So would you like someone to take care of the organisation and marketing in your business because you don't have the time to do it yourself?

Trouble is, virtually every driving school franchise focuses on providing a car or some pupils, but few barely give any thought to you and your needs.

But what many instructors really need is to reduce the organisation headaches that can significantly increase their day.

Let’s make your business great again, and put the fun back into teaching…

You can have your own experienced staff member working for you while you're out teaching, and be confident that someone is managing your business interests and helping your reputation grow.

Next you’ll have a system in place that will eliminate any mix up with lesson times and locations that can sometimes disrupt your day. And your customer details are stored in one place so that you can quickly access progress reports and payment history whenever needed.

If you have the right help you can start to regain time in your day without having to do everything yourself.

Because of our market positioning we don't offer ridiculously low deals and we don't expect you to either. We attract people who are prepared to pay extra for a better service.

You won't believe how awesome working with us is until you've experienced it for yourself, and like many of our ADI's you might find that our premium prices and the time we save you pay for the service we provide.

We can help you achieve more as an ADI than you ever thought possible

 

Statistics show that the majority of instructors working as a franchisee for reputable driving schools had a much better work/life balance than solo independent ADI's.

But not all driving school franchises are the same. See Keith's review...

Duncan joined Elite from one of Europe's largest driver training organisations

 

I'm living a better lifestyle with Elite...

“Hi my name is Duncan and I have been an ADI for over 21 years.

I'd been living up in Scotland as an ADI trainer for 4 years prior to joining Elite in August 2011. My family are from Hull, and after the company I worked for in Scotland seized trading, we decided to move back home. There's not a lot of call for ADI trainers in Hull, and so I decided to go back as an Instructor. I had been in contact with Kev for several months before making the decision to move home, and spent time talking with him about joining Elite and how it would benefit the two of us. It was a great relief to talk to someone who really had my interests at heart. Kev said that any driving school can give you customers but very few can increase an ADI's quality of life over and above any money they charge them.  

Well it's been over 3 years since I joined Elite and my life as an ADI has never been so good. In my opinion Elite Driving School has to be one of the top driving schools in the UK, and you could not find a better team to work with”.
