Opening a Drivers’ Ed School

Can anyone forget the initial excitement of turning sixteen and taking the test for their drivers’ permit? In addition to cramming information on road rules and memorizing dozens of road signs, getting out onto the open road can be stressful. The flow of traffic, the speed of changing lanes, custom traffic signs, the distractions of passengers and worrying about the others on the road makes driving a completely different experience than what was expected. Many recommend drivers training school as a more comprehensive way to prepare for getting behind the wheel. With some effort, you can capitalize on this need by opening your own training school.

Choose Between a Sole Venture or a Franchise

There are several major companies who already offer drivers ed, and for a hefty fee, you can choose to take on their name and operate under their established reputation. This is a great option if you would like to take the guesswork and stress out of drafting a curriculum and establishing resources. It would have to follow the guidelines of the parent company, but it does alleviate you of many start-up concerns. Starting your own private venture allows you to control all aspects of your instruction, teaching materials and costs.

Determine How to Finance Your Business

As you get ready to move forward with your venture, long-term success will require substantial financial backing. Private investors may be an option for your business, but a small business loan might also enable you to get started. One primary fee will be the cost of the operating license from your state’s DMV. This could be upwards of around ten thousand dollars. The DMV will also establish what materials must be included in the course.

Opening your own driver training course could be one way to generate extra income. It also gives you a sense of satisfaction that you are contributing to a generation of safe drivers on the road.
