Blink Driving School - Driving Instructor Training

Postby Stribers92 » Sun Sep 28, 2014 12:12 am

Good evening all,

I have been offered the opportunity to train with Blink Driving School, and a 'guaranteed' franchisee upon qualification. I have always wanted to be an instructor and now that I have this opportunity, I would love to take it up. I have done all the research I can and realise how much hard work is involved in (a) getting qualified and (b) actually training students.

The fee they charge is £2,500 which seams to me to be fairly reasonable.

This includes all exam fee's up to 3 attempts each time. Supplies of all relevant training manuals and documents, example hazard perception videos. 50+ Hours of Instructor Training as well as an additional 2 days training if I fail any of the practical exams.

This is their 'Brochure" http://www.myblink.co.uk/brochure.pdf

They 'Guarantee' a full diary from week 1. They do promotion days in your local shopping centre to drum up business, as well as sending sales people to your local college, yellow page adverts, leaflet drops and a personalised website etc all for a set weekly fee.

If anyone has trained with them and found them to be good or otherwise please reply to this post.

Thank you,

Ben Stribley

Reminds me of early BSM. Most instructors seemed to end up owing BSM and no "full diary".

How much are their franchise fees?
No one can guarantee a full diary.
Pupils do not sit around waiting
for the next guy to qualify.

Be wary of signing a contract that ties you in for
a minimum time.

Earning £30,000 per year is possible but............

I wonder what he decided.??

I find people do not follow up the advice you give and it is very frustrating.
