Reviews from driving instructors

This app is absolutely brilliant. It’s easy to use and has everything I need to run my business with ease. I can and would recommend this to any instructors looking for a management app and I know my students would join me in recommending it as well. I have been using Total Drive for a while now and it makes my life so much easier and my students love the app.

I have been using a rival platform for about a year now, but recently found Total Drive, In the current situation we need to become fully digital and this app has it all; student progress monitor, fully customisable finance categories, lesson notes and reflective log. In addition you can push message through the app to individual pupils or as a group message to fill those cancellation slots. An excellent package.

I’ve used TD for over two years and found it absolutely amazing! So easy to keep note of all your pupils and their progress, and I particularly like the fact that they listen to us instructors and take on board our requests… and act quickly to implement them wherever possible. Pupils love it, giving them much more responsibility for their learning, they get free lesson reminders, which cuts down the cancellation rate!

I have been with Total drive for nearly a year and It has been amazing. My students love it. They use it to message me via the app, as well as asking for lessons. The ability to add gaps is good, and I have spoken to the makers who may potentially add the ability for the app to auto generate gaps. Compared to the national driving school app before this hands down is much more user friendly.

I was very sceptical to pay for an App, when I could use my own Diary. But this App pays for itself every week. The Gap lesson feature alone is worth every penny.

What can I say about total Drive probably wouldn’t fit in this box but, put simply it is a driving instructor must have app. Very simple to use, very efficient and the customers love it. Also, Tom at total Drive is always accessible and extremely helpful.
