Re: SCHOOL NAME

You can't use a name that is registered as a LTD or PLC or a trade mark.

It is also wise not to set up with the same or similar name as another company that you are aware of.

Google is a good place to start checking.

Re: SCHOOL NAME

If you are using your own name in a local area, I don't think there is a problem. I dare say there are David Smiths working all over the country. 

I Own, Come drive with me.com ltd and have registered all the obvious domains, just to keep the name all to myself. 

Owning the .com ltd doesn't guarantee someone else can't use it but gives me a good chance of challenging another company using it. 

Trade marks are a whole different ball game. You will have to spend at least £400 and there is no guarantee that you'll get the outcome that you want.

Re: SCHOOL NAME

Hi Wolves congrats mate on passing your part 3...well done.

I passed my part 3 in May 09 and wanted a company name as i'm going indie.

Stick companies house in a google search and follow the instructions with the company name you want, it will tell you if anyone else is trading under that name.

Best of luck with your new venture.

Matt

Re: SCHOOL NAME

There was a recent topic on trademark infringement

http://www.drivertrainingtoday.co.uk/fo … 605.0.html

which has a lot of info about this, do a search for it. There is the situation that if there is a driving school existing anywhere in the country with the same name they could take action due to what is called "passing off". have a read of the other topic though as it's covered there.

Re: SCHOOL NAME

Not a problem if you trade under your own name. You need to register a name if trading under another name rather than your own or a Ltd company.

Well done for passing. Try and post a write up. Good luck

Re: SCHOOL NAME

If you are a sole trader the only people you need to tell about your name is the tax man. If you are a limited company then you have to register with companies house and all the rules are different.

Re: SCHOOL NAME

Searching on companies house will only reveal ltd companies.

If a sole trader has no web domains, I'm not sure you will find them.
