miDrive launches the easiest way to gift and pay for driving lessons Monday 8 December 2014 PDF Print miDrive Vouchers can be used to pay for driving lessons with more than 3,000 instructors around the country. 08 December 2014: miDrive, a popular UK learning to drive app, today announces miDrive Vouchers and miDrive Pay. miDrive Vouchers can be used to pay for driving lessons with more than 3,000 instructors around the country. This allows learners to find a qualified instructor that’s right for them. miDrive Vouchers make an excellent Christmas gift for the 750,000 people currently learning to drive in the UK. They can be set at any monetary value, and can be bought or requested at www.midrive.com/vouchers. Learners who receive a miDrive Voucher simply deposit the credit into a personal miDrive account. miDrive Pay enables learner drivers to transfer lesson fees directly into instructors’ bank accounts from the convenience of their phones. A learner can use miDrive Pay with a miDrive Voucher and/or money from their personal bank or credit card. Scott Taylor, CEO of miDrive says: “Driving lessons are expensive for young people and miDrive Vouchers help family and friends share the cost. Rather than giving learners cash, a miDrive Voucher makes sure the money is spent on driving lessons while allowing learners a wide choice of top quality instructors.” miDrive’s innovations are also expected to be popular with instructors. Stephen Lavender, an instructor for the past 18 years based in Folkestone, notes: “miDrive Pay streamlines lesson admin. The learner simply clicks a few buttons on their phone and the money is sent to my bank account. I no longer need to worry about carrying cash or taking cheques to the bank.” The miDrive app, which is completely free, enables learners to pass their exams more quickly by providing them with tools such as the ability to easily track and review practice drives. Learners can also use miDrive’s marketplace to find the right driving instructor, which can reduce instruction costs by as much as GBP300. This powerful platform also enables any of the UK’s 44,000 driving instructors to attract new customers. In the past 11 months, miDrive’s network has grown to include more than 30,000 learners and 3,000 instructors. An estimated GBP3 million worth of driving lessons have been driven through its platform. -Ends- For additional information, please contact: XL Communications Ben Ralph firstname.lastname@example.org 07746548214 About miDrive Launched in late 2013, miDrive’s mission is to revolutionise the process of learning to drive with technology.
