What else will we do for you?

Not only do we stand with you every step of the way, we make your job as easy as possible by:

Filling your diary

You may have heard that pupils are easy to source, ‘all you have to do is put a post up on Facebook’. While this may bring you a few pupils every now and then, it’s not a reliable or sustainable way to make a living. In fact 4 out of 5 people who rely on Facebook to bring them pupils will struggle within 2 years. Even now we’re experiencing quieter spells where the surge of demand is dying down however, with our top ranking google pages, we’re able to continue filling our instructors diaries.

Emergency Management

Unfortunately, happens. From a burst tyre to a trip to hospital, these can be stressful times. Let alone knowing you’ve a pupil waiting for you to turn up for their driving lesson in half an hour! That’s what we’re for! Just give us a call or a message and let us know you need your day cancelled or even your week depending on your circumstances and all your pupils will have been contacted within 10 minutes or less. Therefore, you’ll never walk alone with 1st 4 Driving, we’re here for you through every high and every low.

Zero charges for pupils

Unlike a lot of schools, we don’t make you pay per new pupil. We provide you with an unlimited amount of pupils based around your hours you choose to work. We believe in supporting your career without unnecessary costs. Therefore focussing on what truly matters, your growth and success.

Continuing professional development

We strongly believe your development as an ADI is equally important as when you’re a trainee. That’s why we continue to offer training, quarterly in car and annually in classroom, to ensure you stay ahead of the curve. Our continuous training opportunities provide you with new teaching methods and any updates in regulations, keeping your skills constantly refreshed.

A True Story

Only a week ago, our office received a text message from one of our driving instructors to say that he unfortunately needed to go to hospital and would need his day of pupils cancelled. No problem! This is easy – quick call to every pupil and let them all know (all of which were very understanding and happy to reschedule for another day). However, one of his pupils had a driving test… in 1 HOUR! You can imagine the stress our instructor was going through having been taken to hospital let alone worrying about letting your pupil down for their driving test. We spend so long preparing for the test day, excitement building up for the pupil and a mixture of nerves thrown in there too. Finding out 1 hour before your driving test that your instructor is unwell and can’t take you is absolutely devastating. Lucky, with 1st 4 Driving, you never walk alone. Whether you’re a driving instructor or a pupil, we’ve got you. The office managed to search through surrounding instructors diaries and find one who had a free slot that morning, one quick phone to call him and he was on his way to the pupil!
