What does a Young Drivers franchise cost?

In Canada, the franchise fee for a single classroom in populations of 50,000 or more is $7,500. This includes an exclusive territorial and video license fee. In populations less than 50,000, the franchise fee is $5,000.

All franchise fees include a four-week Young Drivers instructor training program for one person, a ten-day Young Drivers classroom teacher program for one person, and a five-day business management program for up to two people.

Additional classrooms within the exclusive franchise area are priced at $2,500. Classrooms outside the exclusive franchise area are $5,000 for populations of 50,000 or more and $3,000 for populations less than 50,000.

What does it cost to get a Young Drivers Centre up and running?

Start-up costs vary depending on city size, rental and leasing costs, salaries, number of employees, and advertising expenditures.

We estimate that the all-in cost of a start-up, including license, leasehold improvements, lease/rental deposit, equipment, lease vehicles, training, and initial working capital will range from $35,000 to $85,000.
