Earn More with RED
RED is proud of the franchise packaged offered and the support we give to our franchisees. In fact, we believe that we offer the best value franchise in the market compared to our peers and also when compared to life as an independent.
To support this claim we have provided an illustration. By joining RED, you could earn over £1,300 more per annum on a full franchise when compared to other national driving schools, and significantly more than being independent.
Not every franchise package is the same and it is often the detail behind the headlines which could make a big difference to your business and the ability you have to maximise your income.
