Is it legal?

One of the adverts on the forum for instructor training has the claim "guaranteed position" in the wording. As it leads through to one of the big guys (have a look and click it if you need to know which - I won't give the game away), I'm reasonably sure that what they are offering is not a guaranteed "position" but a guaranteed franchise.

Unless I'm mistaken a position means that you are employed, and a franchise means that you buy a service.

Or am I confused again?

Re: Is it legal?

I would sort of agree with you there Tim.  I don't know that there would be anywhere that is laid down legally though.

Re: Is it legal?

In Sept '05,  the Advertising Standards Agency adjudicated on a complaint against LVG ltd (the owners of The Instructor College, Instructor College Direct, Red Driving School, Red Instructor Training and other companies).

The complaint failed in respect to the advertising wording.

Re: Is it legal?

Interesting reading Oracle, however it does not address the issue of whether any driving instructors are guaranteed a "position" or not.

If anyone knows the legal use of words - would "position" be ok to be used when actually what is on offer is a business opportunity?

Re: Is it legal?

Position could mean as a franchise instructor not as on the pay roll.

Re: Is it legal?

Totally misleading, absolute BS!  I guarantee you what that you'll get a position as a franchise instructor paying them loads of money with a diary which looks like a desert!
