An example of potential earnings

LDC instructors who carry out 35 lessons per week, take 4 weeks off for holidays per year and charge our average rate of £25 per lesson (lesson prices vary from area to area), could earn the following per week after meeting all business and car expenses, provided this workload was maintained throughout the year:

WEEKLY GROSS INCOME
35 lessons at £25 each
£875
LDC Materials Income
£20

Total Income
£895

WEEKLY EXPENDITURE (Including VAT)
Car Rental / Insurance
£88
Fuel
£72
Franchise Fee
£45
Average top-up pupil fees
£20

Total Expenditure
£225

PRE TAX EARNINGS
£670

The above is equivalent to an annual salary of £31,888 plus a car (The car rental/insurance is based on a 5 door Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.0 with air conditioning). However, because you are self-employed you will make certain tax savings, which will enable you to keep more of the money you earn. Also if you choose to buy rather than rent a driving school car your earnings would potentially increase by a further £1,000 per year.

Naturally, in areas where the lesson rate is higher than the average rate or the type of training given was valued at a higher rate, potential earnings would correspondingly be much greater. For example the above figure of £31,888 would increase to £35,248 at £27 per lesson and £40,208 at £30 per lesson charged.
