XLR8 Wales Driving Instructor Franchise FAQ’s
As an XLR8 Wales Driving Instructor, you will benefit from one to one support and guidance to help you and your business grow.
Do you cover my area?
XLR8 Wales Driving School provide training and franchise’s not only South and Mid Wales but also into North Wales and over to West of England. Just give us a call for an informal chat to see if we can support you where you are.
How many pupils will I get from you?
We always intend to fully book your diary around your own personal commitments and timeframes. Once you sign up with XLR8 Wales, we work tirelessly to develop your area specifically for you and we market your area heavily. With this in mind, you pay no franchise fee until we have provided you with 15 hours a week of work.
Will you recruit more Instructors in my area?
Absolutely NOT! This is a strict policy at XLR8 Wales unless of course there is too much work for one instructor. For example, we have 2 instructors who do cross over 2 areas which has been agreed in advance and it is simply because we have too much work in this particular location. As a general rule, we will never put 2 Instructors in the same patch.
How does the pupil booking process work?
Easy.. We use a state of the art on-line booking system that allows you to book your learners from any mobile internet device, so when you get home, your diary is already up to date and ready to go, saving on huge amounts of administration time. You will receive full and ongoing training on our systems.
Can I meet up with you as often as I like?
We operate an open door policy at XLR8 Wales and all of our Instructors and Trainees are welcome to come to see us at any time day or night for help, support and guidance or even just a cuppa. As an XLR8 Wales Driving Instructor, you will benefit from one to one support and guidance to help you and your business grow.
What business support is provided?
This will depend upon the franchise package that you choose to the level of support that you will receive. On saying that, we spend huge amounts of time with all of our Instructors and provide guidance and support across a variety of business topics from on-line marketing, getting referrals and maximising your business, customer service, and special offers etc. For those Instructors who choose to take the enhanced franchise option, you will receive an additional business support package which includes managing all of your accounts.
Can I meet up with the other instructors?
We actively encourage this. In fact, XLR8 Wales ensure that our Instructors meet as often as possible. Because our Instructors are a part of our family and business, we believe it to be extremely important to hold regular meetings to share ideas, concepts, thoughts and feelings about their businesses and how to always move XLR8 Wales forward as a family and brand. This is a great opportunity to meet up with the Instructors old and new!
What happens if I don’t get enough learners to fill my diary?
We work tirelessly to ensure that this doesn’t happen and we also work very closely with our Instructors on a 1-2-1 basis to maximise all opportunities. You won’t have another instructor in your area from XLR8 Wales unless we are at the point of repeatedly turning people away. If you feel that we ever fail you, then we have the flexibility to drop the franchise fee at any point (although to date, it has yet to happen!).
What About Holidays?
As you are technically self-employed, you are responsible for your own tax, national insurance and holidays, However, with XLR8 Wales you will get 4 weeks holiday (Franchise Free). Just let us know when you want to take them in advance and we will sort out the rest.
