Best Apps for Driving Schools
There are quite a few apps available for driving instructors fulfilling a number of different functions. Some are apps to manage your driving school business such as driving instructor diary software, others are for helping your pupils with apps that you use as teaching aids. Unfortunately the cost and time involved in developing driving instructor apps for what is effectively quite a small market does mean that there are very few really good quality apps available. Some were developed in the first rush of app enthusiasm but have not been updated and now look a little dated. The majority of driving instructor apps are available for iphone and ipad although android phones and tablets are actually more popular. The apps reviewed below are not connected with us in any way. However we do offer the Adi Ninja driving lesson diagram app.

Robosoul Road Pad and Road Board (Apple and Android)
Neil Beaver has developed a good reputation for his driving school apps. Although mainly focussed on the smaller ipad market, a number of the apps are also available on android. Rather than having one, all encompassing driving school app, Neil has created a number of individual free standing apps such as road board with its pre- designed diagrams that you can adapt to your circumstances. The advantage of the free-standing driving school apps is that you only pay for what you want. The disadvantage is that if you get everything it can be pricy!
Cost from £3.99
Driving Instructor Manager (Android)
A very simple app designed to do the basics. This app will allow you to manage your students by allowing you to create lessons, view your schedule in the diary, send SMS reminders to students, track student progress, view stats of how many lessons the student has had and how much revenue has been generated. What it lacks in features this app makes up for in simplicity. You pretty well have to accept it as it is – so you can’t adapt the progress reports to fit with your lesson topics. But for people who want a driving school diary and record keeping app with no frills, this one is worth a try!
Cost – free
