Learn Driving UK Franchise - not a good option

I was thinking of joining the Learn Driving UK Franchise but after having a look over I decicded it was not my cup of tea because you would have to pay

£180 to have your car plastered with car graphics - should it be the school that should pay for this?

£65 a week franchise, which works out to £3120 a year - too much

Re: Learn Driving UK Franchise - not a good option

You pay lots and earn very little on all the big franchises, with no guarantee of work.   Look for a small local one if  you can't do it yourself.

Re: Learn Driving UK Franchise - not a good option

Personally, I don't take much notice of other schools and their offers.  What works for some may not be everyone's cup of tea.
I concentrate on my own business.

Re: Learn Driving UK Franchise - not a good option

Its your choice at the end of the day why not try a local school near you that could offer something better for you?

Re: Learn Driving UK Franchise - not a good option

Hi
I have NO knowledge of this company but find it amazing that we allow someones 1st post on here to be a hatchet job on a driving school!!!
Tittle tattle and hearsay.
This is an open forum.
These sort of posts are potentially libelous I would imagine.
If it had been on the closed section and evidence was provided, then maybe.
No further comment from me.
Peter

Re: Learn Driving UK Franchise - not a good option

I would agree with Peter.
Perhaps adi_girl could furnish us with evidence to back up comments that was heard and some meeting, maybe adi_girls' comments should also be taken with a "pinch of salt".

Re: Learn Driving UK Franchise - not a good option

How is it libellous to,quote a cost of franchise and cost of graphics? This is information.

How is it libellous to add a comment that they feel this is expensive?

More contentious things have been posted about various franchises.

kaf -adi_girl has removed the libellous comments which has now made all the replies out of context.

Sounds very much like a disgruntled ex-franchisee spouting off!

Re: Learn Driving UK Franchise - not a good option

A few companies that I know of charge for adding the graphics to your own car....nothing wrong with it I suppose, as long as it's out in the open and not a hidden extra.

Up to a point!

On the one hand, if you pay £50 for an Arsenal shirt, and thus act as a free advert for Arsenal, Emirates and Puma then you probably need your head examined. [NB Other football shirts are available, but the same comment applies!]

On the other hand, I've been paying a (small) franchise fee to LDC for the last six years, and displaying their livery on my car. In that time, I've run a successful business and never had to spend a penny on advertising. I think my head is ok!

Nothing in life is free.

Option 1 franchise fee of £100 per week

Option 2 franchise fee of £90 per week, one off charge of £100 for graphics.

Re: Learn Driving UK Franchise - not a good option

if your paying a franchise then i cant understand why your being asked to fork out to pay for advertising on your own car the cost should be included in the franchise and not be an extra, what happens if the adi leaves they will have to spend money again on removing the advertising from their car - can't see the point of paying a franchise and then paying them to advertise on your own car

Re: Learn Driving UK Franchise - not a good option

12 years ago, when on a pink with BSM, I was paying £300 per week. I had to work 16 hours to pay their franchise and then find money for fuel all before I earn a penny for myself. 7 days a week for 6 months. Think yourself lucky girl.

£65 per week is chicken feed compared what BSM & AA ADIs pay out. FYI, £300 per week runs out at around £15,000. I think you had a free week over Christmas.

Graphics are easy to remove with hot water or a moderately hot hair dryer.
