New Driver

Having had a very short relashionship with Alan Morgan and his school, New Driver, I have nothing but contempt for them.

They, IMHO, are only concerned about taking on new PDI's and not concerned about finding pupils for current ADI's or PDI's.

Once the savvy ADI leaves said franchice, they are hell bent on the downfall of the ADI/PDI, IMHO.

Don't get involved with New Driver would be my advice. This is based on my own dealings with them.


If there are any posative things people would like to say about New Driver then please post away, it is a forum after all.

Re: New Driver

Actually I had a good experience with New Driver.  They served me well whilst I was on a pink and also took me back on an occasion when I was a little hasty in resigning my franchise.

Alan was a touch optimistic about pupil supply when I was there.  Having said that, though, I eventually had a good number of pupils.

I found Alan his wife and the team to be honest and trustworthy.

Would I go back to them?  No I wouldn't.  Why?  Because they set lesson prices towards the bottom of the market and I don't want to operate down there, I prefer to charge at the higher end of the market.

Re: New Driver

With New driver at the moment. Will be leaving them soon (they know). Not noticed anything untowards about them so far.

They do want back the pupils they gave me which is quite funny as most have long gone lol. Only have about 4 of their pupils left and they've assured me they'll stay.

Re: New Driver

they were best thing since sliced bread when a pdi once qualified all pupils dry up did my year and left now 280 pound a month better off and never busier and charging more per hour.
they were not interested in any complaints or reason why i left them they give very poor customer service and treat you as a employee without the benefits  i would rather go back to stacking shelves than franchise with them again.
