Can you give me an idea of how much time I will need to spend on the franchise each week to make it a success?

You only get out of life what you put into it.  Running a successful franchise will mean a reasonable amount of time, especially as most customers want training at the weekends. Motorcycle tests with the DVSA only take place during the week, so you need to balance the time for training alongside the time of the tests. By signing up for the Gold package, you will receive all the back office business support and contact centre benefits, which will allow you to concentrate on instructing and not having to worry about too much of the business function such as paperwork, booking courses and responding to customer enquiries directly.
