Your instructor profile is your space to sell yourself to potential pupils.

We know from experience that pupils are much happier to contact instructors when they've seen a photo of them.

Let's put a face to the name.

We make sure that every instructor on the platform has a good quality photo of themselves being smart and friendly in order to highlight their professionalism.

We won’t allow anyone to go live on the platform, without an approved photo in place.

Tip: Passport Style Photo With A Smile.

New pupils or parents will message you directly in the message section of your YooDrive portal.

A notification of any new message will be sent to you via SMS Text or via email - whichever you prefer!

Messaging this way forms an efficient way to look back on all your business communications, is GDPR compliant & leaves your phone free for more personal chats.

You can add new bookings directly from your message centre.

For complete flexibility, you decide which pupils to accept.

YooDrive is open to every self employed driving instructor.

Your current franchise should encourage you to find your own work outside the pupils they provide directly.

YooDrive provides you with that, so no need to spend more money & time topping up whatever the franchisor provides.

In order for YooDrive to remain an open and honest platform for the public, we welcome franchised instructors in order to compare against other local instructors.

YooDrive is very different from traditional online lead referral websites charging driving instructors money for the opportunity to take on new pupils.

Here at YooDrive we believe driving instructors should be contacted directly and be the first port of call for consumers to talk to, and not have the need to go through a third party (like a franchise or referral)

YooDrive's self-service platform gives you a free space to showcase your services to thousands of local driving lesson searchers online.

We bring people searching online (Google, Facebook, TikTok, Instagram & Snapchat) for driving lessons and steer them in your direction.

An end to selling

We take away the hassle of selling by notifying you that someone in your area has chosen you, pre-paid and now ready for you to start teaching them how to drive. 

You simply book them in (within 2 weeks) and do what you do best, providing them with excellent professional instruction.

As an industry driving instructors have over time tinkered with pricing based on what other instructors charge rather than a fair price, one which covers Instructors' costs & fees such as:

  • Instructor training costs
  • Continued Personal Development costs
  • Marketing Costs
  • Administration Costs (your hourly rate x time)
  • Accountant Fees
  • Car Insurance + Public Liability fees
  • Fuel Costs
  • Franchise Fees
  • Valeting fees
  • Car Leasing or Purchase Costs
  • Vehicle Maintenance costs
  • Fees to DVSA.
  • + Loss of earnings, due to late cancellations

Taking these points into account, coupled with our commitment to offering a truly professional service that driving instruction is, YooDrive will pay out £42 for each hour you book in clients we provide you with.

Using YooDrive for bookings also gives you secured financial protection against late cancellations. Pupils have agreed to terms set out on the platform and pre-paid their hours with a credit or debit card attached to their pupil or parent account.

We have some handy video user guides set up to help you navigate YooDrive.

Yoo can find that here User Guides.
