Discover a flexible driving school franchise for instructors

Welcome to Nayland Driving School, the driving school franchise with freedom. As a trusted partner of SmartDriving, the UK’s leading driver training organisation, we connect excellent driving instruc-tors (like you) with lots of pupils keen to learn how to drive.

Our aim is to make it easy for you to teach, and for your pupils to pass their driving test with flying colours! If you like what you see on this page, then please get in touch with us here at Nayland Driv-ing School. We can’t wait to welcome you to our ever-expanding network of instructors across the UK!










Flexibility to run your business, your way

For a driving instructor, there is nothing more important than flexibility. The more flexible your working arrangements, the easier it is to fit in more lessons and achieve the work/life balance that you want. Joining us as a self employed driving instructor will give you that flexibility and below are a few reasons why:

Working in your local area

Here at Nayland Driving School, we want to make teaching as convenient as possible for you. We will make sure that you are only working with students close to your local area, so that you don’t have to travel too far every day. As we cover so many different areas across the UK, there are sure to be some eager pupils looking to drive near you!

Use Your Own Car Or Lease a Vehicle

A big attraction for a lot of driving instructors is being able to use their own car. However if you would like a car, we can supply you with one for as little as £72 a week. There is no right or wrong decision here. A lot of instructors like the familiarity of their own car, and feel more confident teaching pupils in a vehicle they have lots of experience in. Others like to keep their work and personal life separate, and leasing a car through our flexible driving school franchise allows them to do that. We’d be happy to talk through both options with you!

Online diary for easy organisation

Gone are the days of paper diaries and keeping your fingers crossed that students will turn up for their lessons. With Nayland Driving School, you and your students will have access to the best software to make organising your timetable a breeze.

We will set you up with an online diary, you will set your chosen working hours and our booking team will book pupils straight into your diary. Simple! We are one of the few schools who have an online booking feature that pupils can use 24 hours a day. This has proven to be very popular, as pupils can book when it is convenient for them, marking us out as a driving school with a difference. This, of course, means more pupils for you!

Once you’ve told us when you want to work you don’t have to do anything else, and if you need to make some changes to your working hours, perhaps to accommodate a holiday or family commitments, you will be able to do so easily.

Every time a new pupil is booked you will get a text alerts tell you that you have a new pupil. Then future bookings will be made between you and the pupil, allowing you both to come to an arrangement that suits you.


The online diary will also:

  • Send your pupil reminder texts the night before
  • Let you track lesson history
  • Keep track of payments so you don’t have to
  • Manage your expenses
  • Help you stay ahead of the competition!

Here at Nayland Driving School, we combine modern technology with clear communication and common sense. We give our instructors all the help they need getting used to and getting the most out of their online diary. It’s clear to see why we are a leading driving school franchise!

After researching many different trainers and companies, I found Nayland Driving School. As soon as I met Michael his knowledge professionalism and personality shone through. I enjoyed every training session, Michael knew exactly how to get the best from me, and supported me every step of the way especially when taking my exams.

Top quality driving instruction from Michael passed ADI 3 first time! Thanks again

Keith Cole ADI

Geoff is a brilliant driving instructor! He's very patient and knowledgeable! I have learnt so much during our lessons and I would highly recommend him for ADI training.

Suzanne Death

I started with Michael as my first Trainer. He consistently showed up on time and offered great training for my Part 2. Very observant at my abilities and knew what to work on and involved me in decisions. He was very patient with me despite some poor choices on my part, but this led to discussions on how to improve. Looking forward to work with Michael as a qualified ADI one day.
