Pros
Everything is managed by the app. I love that you can offer pupils a gap in your day to be filled, and I also love the ability to broadcast messages to the pupils you select.
And last, but certainly not least, the superb support we get from the developers. They are so responsive to the ideas that are submitted.
This is my life, the software that helps me drive my business and does it with ease. I love it and my students do as well.
Cons
When I first signed up to total drive in 2019 there were teething problems, although they were dealt with quickly. I have had any problems in a long time though.
Any niggles have been addressed quickly. I can’t think of any serious cons to using the app other than my near-total reliance on it.
I pay for something which doesn't save me much time. I prefer my pupils to pay by bank transfer.

Total time saver! 🙂

Reviewed 6 months ago

I can’t imagine not using it now. Absolutely brilliant for saving me time and it’s such great value!

Pros

The app saves me lots of time each day, and the support is superb if any glitches or issues are encountered. The way the app communicates with pupils means I don’t have to juggle different numbers or emails. Everything is managed by the app. I love that you can offer pupils a gap in your day to be filled, and I also love the ability to broadcast messages to the pupils you select.

Cons

You can raise any issues with the support team and even suggest improvements which get voted in by other users so there is never much to dislike!

A bespoke system for Driving Instructors which takes out the hassle from diary / learner management

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've saved hundreds if not thousands of pounds by having a full diary with almost zero no shows for lessons!

Pros

Having everything up front and visible to both learners and instructors avoids the 'I didnt realise I had a lesson / no shows' Its a one stop shop providing Diary Management, Reminders of lessons, Payment features , Progress tracking and reflective logs.

Cons

There really isnt much to dislike about the software. Many of the features I would like added have been communicated to the developers and they have or are implementing them. Might be nice to have an open API that could be linked to by Zapier or similar

Easy Scheduling with lots of added features!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall it’s an excellent product.

Pros

Total drive is an instructor specific app that provides great management tools, constantly improving and very responsive. Pupils love the dedicated app with all of their relevant information and instructors have an easy to use tool to keep track of their pupils

Cons

More options for pupil payments would be good as there is currently only one provider and payments are sometimes slow to come through.

Transformed our business!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Outstanding! It has made life so much easier. We have been using TD for over 2 years now and we wouldn't ever consider being without it.

Pros

Where do I start?! Progress chart so a learner can see how close they are getting to be at test standard; lesson reminders automatically sent out; reflective log for learners to complete - this is a really powerful tool for goal setting. And last, but certainly not least, the superb support we get from the developers. They are so responsive to the ideas that are submitted. This app has truly revolutionised how we work and made it so easy to adminster not only my own diary but to oversee what is happening with all our instructors.

Cons

One aspect I would like to see improved is the ability to message everyone on our waiting list so that we can keep them updated with one message rather than having to message them all individually.

Vendor response

We have updated the messaging to allow you to select individual pupils, multiple pupils or just those on the waiting list.
