Competition in the Newcastle area??`

I am still training to be an ADI...But thought id ask anyone out there, especially those in Newcastle!, what the demand is like? When im out and about I always seem to spot an ADI..all the time!

Have you guys got enuff people on your books to make a good living? In my eyes, thats around 30+ lessons a week. My only worry is if/when I do pass- will I make enough to leave my job? I know its a question everyone asks but its one that concerns me and should do to all who are training.

I would appreciate if I can hear from people who are working in the Newcastle and sorrounding areas?

Thanx

Re: Competition in the Newcastle area??`

hello mo.

i am nearly thru' my 40hrs for my part 3 & hoping to go on a pink in the next couple of weeks or so. talking to a few people at schools etc. there appears to be plenty of work out there, in the area. (i am in south sheilds). just been to see someone, who i will hopefully going on my licence with, and he says if i get started in the next couple of weeks or so, he should be able to get me at least about 25hrs a week for my first couple of weeks, to get me started. rising to 35-40 within the following few weeks. (which is exactly what i am after). big_smile

like i said, i've talked to a few people & they all seem to be saying the same thing. big_smile

i know someone who is starting on a pink in the next week or so and they have already been given a full diary.

hope this helps.

p.s. how far are you on with your training?

Re: Competition in the Newcastle area??`

oh, & by the way.

i forgot to say that he has also said that if i go to work for his school & he cannot fill the hours i am asking for, his franchise fee is lowered accordingly for that particular week (on the condition HE cannot fill my diary, and it's not that i am not asking for pupils, ie. it's his fault, not mine).

this was also all spelled out in a written contract and stuff, not just word of mouth (which could, i suppose, be later denied).

this also hepled to ease my mind some.

hope this also helps. big_smile

Steve,

It seems you have a canny deal mate! Go for it. I have just started, still on me first part. I wish I can go on a pink after the 2nd part but I cant because I work full time. It seems from what you are saying that you will have enuff pupils to earn a canny amount, nice one!

Im from newcastle (ish) as well and currently studying part 1 - has anyone done any comparisons in the area to see what the average price of a lesson is..? this could save me a lot of calls to local ADIs

Re: Competition in the Newcastle area??`

Newcastle, what a great night out !

Back to the topic  smile  I know of a few Instructors in newcastle  that only charge £13 per hour.

The AA driving school charge £19 per hour, i think BSM are on £20.50 at the last count.
