Why Should a Driving Instructor Lease their Car?

Whether you're a self-employed driving instructor or you run a well-established business, dual control cars are the most important aspect of your company. You need one that's reliable, easy to drive and not so old that it rattles and scares the living daylights out of your client. Dual control vehicles will see a lot of learner drivers in their time, so they need to be up to the job. But where do you start? Luckily, with a driving instructor car lease deal, the answer is simple.

Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC), we've teamed up with Hitachi, one of the biggest providers of tuition vehicles in the industry, to supply car leasing deals at an affordable price. Whether you need a singular car or a whole fleet, our leasing deals come with admirable contract lengths and monthly rentals suited to your preferences. As well as providing pickup, van and car leasing in Leicester, we can deliver any vehicle straight to your door across mainland UK. Are you considering leasing a dual control vehicle? Read our article to see why leasing is the best choice for you.

A Brand-New Car for Easing Learner Worries

Sometimes, it may seem simpler (and cheaper) to buy a car and have dual controls fitted later. However, this isn't practical if you're looking to establish your business as a reliable service or to boost your reputation. Learner drivers will look for an instructor with good reviews and a more modern car; they won't want to drive a car that's almost as old as them, and buying a brand new car upfront is incredibly expensive. This is where leasing comes in.

According to the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA), vehicle leasing has grown by 14%, with 1 in 4 driving instructors now opting to lease. More modern technology prepares learners for when they buy, finance or lease their own car, and it won’t be as likely to break down on them, which can be stressful for a learner.

It's More Cost-Effective

As previously mentioned, buying a brand-new car upfront is expensive; on top of that, you have to consider getting dual controls fitted, which can cost over a hundred pounds. Leasing a brand-new car that already has the controls fitted is significantly cheaper, and it is all paid for through monthly rentals, allowing you to manage your finances and budget.

Becoming a driving instructor can be extremely rewarding, but in order to attract new custom, you need to make sure your business is reliable and effective. This can take time and investment, but we're here to make the process as affordable as possible. Whilst our partnership with Hitachi offers effective dual control vehicle solutions, we also have some great cars on special offer for personal usage, such as the Suzuki Swift, which is currently just £135.46 per month ex. VAT.

No Need to Worry About Depreciation

As your car gets older, it decreases in value. In a world where you can lease or finance a brand-new car, buying upfront is a bad investment. You probably won't get back how much you paid for it initially, and if you need to sell it, you need to arrange to have the dual controls removed, which can cost money and time. Therefore, finding a driving instructor car lease deal is the most sensible option.

Here at MWVC, all of our funders use the BVRLA Fair Wear and Tear policy; we know how hard it is to keep a vehicle pristine throughout its entire contract, but with the policy, there's some leeway.
