What some our ADI team have to say about us


“In the many years I’ve worked as an ADI I have had a few different driving school franchise plans. I can honestly say that moving to This is Driving is the best move I’ve ever made! I have a constant supply of pupils and should I need topping up I only have to ask. This is Driving’s full admin support is great and ensures that all new pupils get welcome packs before their 1st lesson. I’d definitely recommend This is Driving to any instructor.”

Pete Reddish.


“To any ADI looking for the support of a driving school franchise – look no further! Paul & his team at This is Driving are a fantastic bunch of people to work with. The franchise plans are really well priced and the standard of pupil supply is both high and regular. There are no ridiculous or misleading offers and the hourly rate is fair and competitive. I would (and do!) recommend This is Driving as the only franchise for any ADI who is looking for a fair, fun and friendly driving school team to franchise with.”

Donnalisa Taylor.


“This is the best driving school franchise I have had! I have a full diary and have the flexibility to choose where and when I work, and I am not having to sell myself short giving away lessons with silly offers and prices. I am kept up to date with the direction the Company is going and love how progressive it is. This is also making my home life very quiet! I could not have made a better choice.”

Kevin White.


“I love being part of This is Driving! I have a supply of pupils in the areas that I want to work as and when I need them, and This is Driving’s excellent admin support gives me the freedom to focus on my learners. I’m really proud to be part of such an inspiring and ambitious driving school team!”

Neil Wells.


“At This is Driving we work really hard to make our driving school fun, friendly and reliable – both for our pupils, and our people. I’m really proud to lead a great team and am committed to supporting talented and enthusiastic ADI’s who make learning to drive really fun and enjoyable for their pupils!”

Paul Scotney.


“In my 14 years as an ADI This is Driving are one of the best driving school’s I’ve been with. Within a week of me starting my diary was full and has continued to be ever since. They’re a great team and the back up and support you get from them is brilliant. If you’re looking for a franchise to join you won’t go far wrong with these guys!”

Gary Spencer.
