no the adverts are not to be belived and yesit does come mainly from word and mouth and yes therer can be to much competion dont pay cash up front avoid big companys like the plauge . it can take a wile to build up a good reputation. and ask local adis the dia  and the dsa so that you can make a informed desion . if it sounds to good to be true it usally is

Re: i am looking for some honest advice from adis and pdis

you can earn a lot more than 30k but not as a one man band your turn over will be more like 20 to 25 k yes you can earn more over 7 days but you will get knackerd its up to you but 22500 with 7 wks off sounds a good deal to me you can swop with me. end off the day it is a case of what you want out of life and are you happy if not then this could be you but kiss good buy to your 7wks holidays and sick pay and what happens if you become ill the state wont help you so you do need to put a lot of money away each wk. i love what i do but i did not have a secure job thats why i decided on this for a living so you see i had nothing to lose. try your local enterprise trust for help.there are better ways to earn 30k . i personally have never looked back and when i wake in the morning i look forward to the day a head. i hope i have help you the desision is yours to make

evening Shaun

Its not all doom and gloom out here inspite of what Lee says.
Looks as if theres lots of money to be made even if you're by your self but you got to charge a lot for your lessons and it looks like only the best get to charge high rates.

Re: i am looking for some honest advice from adis and pdis

im not all doom and gloom sid but he ask for my honest advice like the guy said and he is faced with stiff competion i know the area well and its not affluant area and there is alot of adis and if you can get 23pound a hr then you are doing very well and he has got lot of thinking to do he has got a secure job with good holidays and in that area its quite good i think. it would be good if more adis can help this guy make is mind up . i know people who have not been a success in this job does any one want to comment. as for earnings well my turnover is over 35 k this tax year but it is not all profit. were are you based sid?

well sean some one said check bsm and aa sites for the price of lessons in difrent areas and a dear price would a big demand and a low price low demand which is not a bad way of doing it also if you are good at teaching people to drive you will do very well indeed a good sence of hurmor and be enthusiastic and take a intrest in the person you are teaching. you wont go far wrong. but you will need a good trainer ive given you two of the best in your area its up to you.

Re: i am looking for some honest advice from adis and pdis

depends on why they cancell and how long they have been with you have some terms and conditions if they cancell a lot i get rid no good to me and no good for them. if it hapens alot were a get lot of people canceling then i will start looking at my self first but sometimes you just get a bad bunch not very often . i politly warn them then get shut if things dont improve its a businsess and not a charity
