We answer the BIG questions about your business.
You get ideas and inspiration to propel yourself to be among the top companies in the driving school profession.

Advice like this would easily cost you £500 or more.
However, it can be yours for the price of donating £17.00 to charity!

Just What Do You Want?
Are you happy with the humdrum of mediocrity or do you and your family deserve more?

That's right.
The Driving Instructor Business Summit is not about Standards Checks, it's not about having a fuller diary, and it's not even about increasing your lesson prices...it's about you, your family, your purpose and how you are going to smash your life goals.

For sure we have top advice on hand to help you with the technicalities of running a great driving school, but the Summit goes much further, and much deeper.

Get Ready To Embrace!

Have you ever woken up thinking you could do so much more?
You must have had those moments where you say to yourself "That could be me"
And you have thought "how did they get on TV, how did they become successful, how did they build a huge driving school?"

The Summit is a golden gift for you to get a true perspective of who you are, where you are heading, and where you really want to be.
You already have the wonderful ambition of wanting to be a top driving instructor,  the tools are out there for you to do it.

And now is the time for you to let go of whatever has been holding you back, for you to burst onto the scene, to be great and for you to be mega proud.

We only have one crack at life, when do you start?
When do we finally admit to ourselves we can do better,
that there is more to achieve,
more to be had...

Martin Leather has been an ADI for over 26 years and also when an area manager for the AA he ran their biggest region with approximately 80 ADIs recruited and retained. That's pretty good going by any standard and now through his business Driving School Development (DSD), he is traveling the country helping ADIs reach their business goals. Martin and his team will be attending the Summit with a trade stand and will soon be featuring on a webinar. We're sure DSD will be a very popular stand and that you'll enjoy asking your questions.

Smart Driving

John Farlam, Graham Lucas and Adam Bragg will be supporting you throughout the day. With respect to Graham and Adam who do more then their fair share of the workload (So Adam tells me lol), you will probably be more familiar with John, who has been an industry leader in his own right for more than 3 decades. The Smart Driving team are here to support your driving school business with their boundless levels of knowledge and experience. You will also be able to get very special access to their Standards Check App which is taking the industry by storm! Please be sure to make it your mission to see their trade stand and pose them your business questions.

The Alternative Franchise The risk factor when going independent can seem quite high. You tend to think of "What happens if?" And for that reason, lots of ADIs prefer to invest their money into another school on the basis they receive protection from the school by receiving pupils. The Alternative Franchise gives you the opportunity to promote your own driving school name, receive enquiries, develop business thinking, and all while under the protection of a money back guarantee. Come and say hello at the Summit and see how it could work for you. www.alternativefranchise.co.uk
