About Manchester Driver Training

manual adi driving instructor

Manchester Driver Training are a responsible driving training provider who only offer new positions when existing instructors are fully booked as opposed to some driving school businesses who take on driving instructors regardless of whether the work they have coming in meets the needs of their existing team members.

As we are a family business we see each instructor as an individual and make sure that you are well looked after and kept busy. We promote a relaxed atmosphere where instructors can make suggestions regarding input on courses or blog contributions.

We have a professional but fair business approach so that you as the instructor know that we aim to keep you busy and deal with any queries that you have with a high level of communication and service.

The majority of the driving instructors who work with a driving school or driver training establishment are known as self employed franchisees.

This is the nature of the industry excluding when an instructor sets up his or her own limited company and becomes an employee of their own company.

Business Practices

As an experienced driver training provider we avoid the following business practices that some other driving schools promote:

  • Taking on too many instructors too soon without enough business coming in.
  • Making statements like we have no written agreement with our instructors – which is basically a way of saying if you have no work you can’t hold us to anything.
  • Charging a rock bottom franchise fee whereby the driving school has no motivation to keep you busy or any capital to invest in the business to promote the business.
  • Taking on too many trainee instructors to earn a quick and often cheap franchise fee knowing that due to lack of support and investment that the trainee is unlikely to reach ADI status.
