A driving instructor car lease works just like any other car lease, except we are supplying you with a dual-control car, i.e a car that is made for driving lessons by having a clutch and a brake pedal on the front passenger seat, allowing you to assume control of the car from the learner should you need to.
Perhaps you’re looking into this as a career, or perhaps you are already a driving instructor? Either way, did you know that you don’t have to fork out £1000’s to buy your driving instructor vehicle; you can lease a dual control car through Hippo Leasing, nationwide.
Since this is your business baby, and the place you’re going to be in for the majority of your time, it’s super important that you choose the right dual control vehicle to suit your needs as a driving instructor. And Hippo Leasing is more than happy to help you.
This form of leasing contract is attractive as it breaks up the cost of your car into convenient monthly payments. Of course, a deposit is a fantastic way of bringing down your payments, but at Hippo Leasing, deposits are optional on all our deals removing the need for a large amount of capital to get your dual-control car.
With Hippo Leasing, there are contracts available are contract hire, personal contract purchase (PCP),hire purchase and lease purchase and each depends on what you want to happen at the end of your contract, which lasts between two and five years.
With contract hire (otherwise known as lease hire), you pay a monthly fee, which is calculated based on the car’s depreciation, and hand the car back at the end and choose another car to lease.
With PCP, you can choose to hand the car back or to buy the car – this involves a balloon payment. Similarly, with PCP, your monthly payments are based on the depreciation of the car. With contract hire and PCP, you have the opportunity to change your car every few years, thus upgrading what you drive.
Lease purchase is similar to a PCP deal, but there is an obligation to buy the car at the end of the contract.
Due to contract hire, PCP and lease purchase agreements being based on the car’s calculated depreciation, these have lower monthly rates.
If you choose ahire purchase contract for your dual-control car, then the monthly payments are a little higher, but you are choosing to buy the car outright and are paying off its value in instalments.
Each option has its merits, and it is up to the customer to decide which suits your needs best.
