An app developed by a Leicester startup, which helps driving instructors manage their clients and business online, has launched as a beta version.

Book a Driving Instructor streamlines lesson scheduling and payments for independent instructors, and helps them avoid last-minute cancellations.

It’s the brainchild of Joe Hopkinson, who came up with the idea when he first started taking lessons.

Joe went on to research the idea further whilst studying at the University of Leicester, where he ended up developing it as final year project.

Three years on and the test version of the app is now available, whilst the live platform is invite only for the moment.

On Linkedin Joe said:

“To get to this stage is a massive achievement and I’m really proud to have come this far.”

Joe’s startup is looking for beta testers, so if you can help please email him:
