BENEFITS OF LEASING A DUAL CONTROL CAR FOR DRIVING INSTRUCTORS
- No need to buy and pay huge amounts upfront – If becoming a driving instructor is a new venture; you’ve probably just paid out a lot of cash to get the training, and your business up and running. The last thing you need now is a huge payment of £1000’s to get the dual control car that you need. Leasing allows you to get your dream driving instructor car, and pay monthly, spreading the costs and freeing up your cash.
- No deposit options – Not only do you not have to buy upfront, but you can benefit even more by choosing a deposit size of your choice, from zero to 12 months up front. Most deals right now are only one month deposit up front!
- Choose contract length – Our lease contracts can start from just 24 months, so you have the flexibility to hire for the length of time that most suits your business needs.
- Choose the contract type – Whether you want to lease for a couple of years before you buy, or lease for a longer period and exchange the car for a newer model afterwards or you simply want a one-off lease where you then return the car. We have all options available to you, from PCH, PHP and more.
- Choose your mileage – Because driving is what you’ll be doing mostly, you may be doing more miles than an average person simply driving back and forth to work every day.
