Reviews from instructors and driving schools

Not having to check the bank account, check who payment is from and update a client account has saved at least 5 mins per transaction. If I get all learners to use this method then I would save 30 x 5mins per week.

Driving Skills Academy

Payments looks professional and has allowed me to deal with companies that want their staff trained. The bespoke price is great as it allows higher reward for driving instructors who are more diligent in their work, this has been missing in all franchise models I have seen.

Paul Tomlin

Stoke Driving School

Without doubt app payments has helped me, as soon people have just booked and paid saving admin going back to them on text, email.

Chris Deller

Swindon Driving Lessons

Love the way different students only see their individual rate. Pupils like the fact they can pay through the app and will be integrated into my website too.
