"I did quite a bit of research prior to joining a franchise as I wanted to be part of a team that shared my ideals on client-centred approach. I made contact with various driving schools and heard back from all of them via different methods but it was DLA that stood out from the crowd! From the initial contact I knew DLA was the school for me. Darren called me, to not only tell me about DLA but also to find out about me, my background, and my requirements. The call was friendly and professional with a personal touch. With the other driving schools, I felt like a number not a member. From this initial contact, I was then invited to meet Darren and Dave in person which I loved, putting a face to the voice and company profile! I’m very client-focused and chose the DLA team as Darren and Dave sharedmy values in delivering an outstanding service to all who choose to learn with them."
"I have worked with other companies before switching to DLA Driving School. I couldn’t have found a better company to be a part of. My diary was full within a very short space of time and more importantly has remained full all year every year since joining, something my previous franchise failed to do. Darren and Dave’s support helps me run a successful business earning more than I ever have before. Its great to have the back up of and feel part of a very successful team."
"I chose to join DLA after feeling let down by my previous franchise. At DLA I immediately felt part of the team and was happy to see that everything I was promised was delivered. Darren and Dave did exactly what they promised providing me with premium price clients which enable me in turn to earn substantially more than I did under my last franchise."
"I had been working on my own for a number of years and had never previously considered joining a franchise company. After meeting with Darren and Dave I could see how they are building a very client focussed business and how they are determined to provide the best possible service, not just to their students, but also their franchisees as well. After I joined DLA Darren and Dave have done exactly what they said they would resulting in more clients for me at a better rate than I had when I worked alone. Although I am seeing that my earnings have increased its great to be part of a real team that I can call on at any time for help and advice."
"Having worked for a large franchise I decided to join DLA in order to continue to progress my business and career. For me DLA provide the right level of support and encouragement but still give me that independence that my other franchise didn’t. The team spirit at DLA is second to none, it’s a very happy company to be involved with."
"I joined DLA Driving after meeting with Dave and Darren. It’s a fantastic team to be a part of and the franchise is well priced and provides everything I needed to be a successful instructor. I was originally located in Bedfordshire, and I decided to move to Cheshire. After discussions with Dave and Darren they offered to try and get me started from scratch in the new area. It’s a testament to how much this company think of their instructors, I now have a very full diary and to cap it all it was done very quickly. Joining this franchise was the best decision I have made."
"When I was looking for a franchise option I looked through many organisationsand the only company that wanted to meet me personally was DLA Driving. Darren and Dave wanted to make sure that I fitted in with DLA as much as I wanted to be sure that they in turn would fit my requirements. I happy to say that after that first meeting joining the company was a no brainer. Darren and Dave have done exactly what they said they would do. My initial worry of not having a full diary was short lived and my diary has been and is always full. Their support throughout the pandemic was exceptional and a testament to how the company is run. Franchise fees are inclusive of all my training needsand in my view very good value for money; costs such as clothing, advertising, teaching aids and car branding are all taken care of. More importantly you feel like a valued member of team and I know that I can always approach Darren and Dave about any matters. It is a fantastically friendly group to be a part of both professionally and socially.
"I joined the team at DLA Driving School late 2021 after having been with another local driving school after speaking with Dave at the local test centre. I have found DLA very professional and excellent to work with; very supportive and very helpful in every area of my business. Being part of the DLA team is like having an extended family, everyone are really friendly and are very willing to help out in times of need. If you are looking for a franchise that wants to maximise your potential then DLA is the one for you."
"I have been instructing for a number of years and I am delighted to join the DLA team as an Automatic Driving Instructor. As a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) I understand that sometimes a new driver can be less confident in their ability to use a manual car. Sometimes people find that using the clutch and the gears as well as learning all the other skills required to learn to drive just a little too daunting. By creating a relaxed atmosphere I aim to make your learning experience in an Automatic car less stressful whilst covering all the essential skills you will need to become a confident and competent driver."
"After recently moving to Central Bedfordshire, I started to see DLA cars around the local area. I was looking for a new start after recently leaving a national driving school and thought i would look them up. What a great decision. After looking at the website, speaking to Darren and meeting him in person I knew it was the right fit for me. You're looked after from day 1 and feel part of the team. I'm Ashley and I work with DLA Driving School."
"After training with DLA I decided to look at the option of taking a franchise with them. It was important to me that I felt valued and was not just another number in the chain. Darren and Dave have been fantastic and delivered everything they promised their franchise would bring. The company are very understanding and a pleasure to be part of. Leads, clothing, stationery, advertising and help with all my reviews are all provided leaving me to focus on my learner driver education. DLA Driving are a friendly group of instructors who all know each other, and Darren and Dave are always available to assist with any matter that I need to discuss. That personal level I believe is only available when a company values all of its franchisees and for me that was crucial in my decision to joining DLA Driving School."
