Drive, teach & earn on your terms

If you're an awesome driving instructor, then we'd love you to work on our platform.

And trust us, being with The Drive Hive will be far more beneficial and lucrative than working for a driving school, buying a franchise or trying to do everything on your own.

Why do you need us?

Pros of using us

  • We'll do all the hard work and bring learner drivers straight to you
  • You'll be able to set your own prices and choose your own schedule 
  • You'll be in charge of your own career and decide your own future
  • You'll only pay a small fee whenever you take on a new learner

Cons of not 

  • You'll struggle to earn much money if you work for a driving school
  • You'll have no say over your schedule with a driving school  
  • You'll have to pay a weekly rental fee if you buy a franchise
  • You'll have the stress of finding your own customers if you go it alone


Working for a driving school will severely limit what you can earn from your driving career. 

That's an undeniable fact.

Most driving schools won't pay much of a salary and some even charge instructors per pupil, effectively penalising you for working hard.

Many will also force their instructors to take a huge hit on their earnings if their school is running any special offers (such as 5 hours for £55).

Basically, you're not the boss and you'll never have much say in what's going on.

Meanwhile, buying a franchise and getting a little help from a big company sounds like it would be a good idea, but there's always a hefty weekly fee to be paid.

Most places will charge you around £280 a week to use their name. And although that fee might include a car, it will need to be paid regardless of how many pupils you teach. 

Given we're talking about approximately £1,120 before tax and fuel costs, we could be talking about working all week before you turn over a profit. 

And, of course, we haven't even factored in the stress of finding the work in the first place.

Finally, doing everything on your own is even more dangerous. You might be a good instructor, but you'll need a lot of business skills to make this work over the long-term.

Once again, you'll obviously need customers. And not just one or two every now and then. You'll need them regularly for as long as you want to be an instructor. 

Do you really want the stress of learning new marketing skills on top of paying the bills?

Look, our platform offers you a much better solution.

Not only will we hand you learners on a plate, but we'll give you total flexibility to choose where you're willing to work, when you're available and how much you'd like to earn.

And all these settings can be updated at any point, which means you're in charge.

So, if you're snowed under with students, you can make yourself unavailable or else up your prices to reflect demand.

If you've got some spare time to fill or you're saving up for that big holiday, you can lower your rates, open up your schedule and widen the areas that you're willing to work in. 

It's totally up to you, always.

With us, you'll unlock your earning potential.

The arrangement is really simple: 

You'll only pay £25 for each new pupil who books a single driving lesson with you. Then, for every other lesson you give that learner, you get to keep 100% of the cash.

Oh and if anyone books up an intensive course, you won't pay anything at all. You'll earn your normal rate and we'll just automatically add on a small fee in the background. 

And that's it.

It doesn't matter how many lessons a learner has with you, how long they stay with you, how many learners you teach or how hard you work.

It's our job to make life easy for learners by giving them loads of helpful information, connecting them to great instructors and allowing the student to shape their lessons.

The rest is up to you...

teaching on our platform...

Getting started with us couldn't be simpler. Once your application has been approved, just create an account and choose which areas you'd like to cover, the price you'd like to charge and when you're next available. 

When someone books out time in your schedule for lessons or an intensive driving course, you'll be notified. Your availability will be adjusted, then it's up to you to contact the learner ahead of your first session.
