A proven franchise with 19 years of success
NOGEARS is an established, nationally recognised brand, founded in 2005 to meet a growing demand for Automatic lessons. As an early pioneer, NOGEARS remains the UK's leading dedicated Automatic Driving School, with representation across the UK.
NOGEARS is a franchise created by driving instructors, for driving instructors, and over the past 19 years, the business has grown into a unique franchise opportunity. Our expert team continue to remove the administrative burden, lost time and marketing expense from your driving school business.
A dedicated support team, focussed on you
We never forget that our primary purpose is to support you and your driving school business. We understand that being a driving instructor is hugely demanding of your time, and our small but highly dedicated team will work tirelessly to deliver qualified and pre-paid pupils to you, so that you can maximise your earnings, through increased lesson hours.
Help with the transition from Manual to Automatic
Many of our franchise instructors have moved across from manual instruction, attracted by increased demand and higher lesson prices. However, we understand it can be challenging timing this transition, particulalry where you still have manual pupils, lessons to fulfil, and require a continuity of income.
To help, we can facilitate the loan of an Automatic dual control car, complete with NOGEARS livery and inclusive of insurance, maintenance, routine servicing and full breakdown assistance. This allows you to start, and build your Automatic business, whilst still offering manual lessons, allowing you to make the transition, as your Automatic diary builds. Full details are provided in the 'Franchise Guide' available on request.
No cost start-up
Prior to awarding a NOGEARS franchise, your area will have been fully researched to ensure it meets our operating requirements. Therefore, having done all our homework, we are confident to invest in you and your business without the need to charge a joining fee or launch marketing contribution.
No franchise fee during initial pupil build-up
In addition to the risk free, no cost start-up, there is no franchise fee charged during your initial pupil build-up, so that you can start earning revenue, before your franchise fee begins.
Franchise fee holidays
We all need a break, especially driving instructors! NOGEARS offer a 4-week franchise fee holiday in each calendar year, applied pro-rata in your first year.
