Driving School Franchise

Driving Instructors are Needed Urgently

Our fantastic success as the “Most Loved Driving School in the West Midlands” is not without challenges!
We urgently need to expand our elite team of top instructors – and there is ONE more place open to the right candidate. If you say yes to any of the following questions then call us!

Are you an excellent driving instructor, but struggling to find sufficient work in your area?

Are you fed up with paying for an expensive franchise and not getting the benefit of real support or enough pupils for your needs?

Are you considering your options and not sure which way to go?

Come and talk to us about the driving instructor jobs we have available and what a franchise with Rio Driving School can offer you.
You’ll no doubt be very surprised! Our team is small and specialised. You’ll be heavily supported.

Our fees are well below what you might expect to pay, and what you will get in return is enough work to make it more than worth your
while! FREE ADI CPD training is available, along with opportunities to gain qualifications with the IAM and RoSPA.

Call us now on 0800 566 8636 now!

Costs of our driving school franchise

Assuming you’ve got your own training vehicle, then…

For just £75 per week (the equivalent of around 3 hours of driving lessons) Rio will provide you with as many pupils as you need to run a
successful business. We will provide you with a minimum of 5 pupils before you pay us any franchise fee. We believe that it is only fair
that you should earn (and therefore benefit) before we begin charging you anything. There is no cap to the number of pupils which we will
provide you – and no extra charge! All of our driving instructors work in excess of 40 hours per week.

We can really deliver the pupils you need to keep you busy! Just ask for our driving instructor testimonials or ask to speak to them personally!

You’ll also get…

  • Free Professional Uniform (Winter Jacket, Embroidered long sleeve or polo shirts).
  • Free flyers and Business Cards to further promote your business in your area.
  • FREE vehicle decals / magnetics and rooftop box.
  • Personal 1:1 support as well as telephone assistance when required.
  • FREE CPD – to gain further advanced qualifications with RoSPA/IAM.
  • FREE coaching for check test.
  • X3 weeks franchise-free holiday per year.

Sarah’s Testimonial, July 2015


“Before joining RIO I was with a national driving school and getting nowhere. Although they ‘guaranteed’ 50 pupils a year, the reality was half of that and a half full diary.
They tried to manage my diary but I found I was being sent all over the place with no regard to distance, sometimes up to 20 miles away as it ‘looks pretty close’ on a map. Whenever I phoned for help I would talk to someone new with no idea of my situation.
I was only just breaking even and on the brink of giving up.Within a few months of joining RIO I had a full diary.
Paul didn’t make unrealistic promises, he told me that as long as the phone’s ringing I will be looked after. A year a half later and the phone’s still ringing.
I manage my own diary and as RIO is a local business I cover a much smaller area.
I have support when I need it from Paul or my other RIO colleagues and training to further my career progression. I have recently married my partner of over 3 years, something that we would never have been able to do if I hadn’t of grown my business with the help of Paul and RIO.
We had a lovely wedding and a fantastic honeymoon. Just looking now where to celebrate our anniversary next year. I say to any ADI struggling with their business to talk to Paul and join RIO, you wont regret it!”
