August 26, 2020 // Franchising.com // ISSAQUAH, Wash. – Not even the pandemic can slow down The Driver Training Group.
The group, which is the parent company for 911 Driving School and SWERVE Driving School, recently announced that systemwide revenues in June, July and August were up year-over-year. In fact, recent systemwide sales have exceeded projections, with a 17% increase in sales for June and 15% increase in July. The company projects a 22% uptick in August based on current student enrollments.
A pioneer in the driving school sector, at the onset of the pandemic, The Driver Training Group partnered with Washington state officials to gain approval for web-based learning for not only all of its 911 and Swerve Driving Schools in the state of Washington, but for all driving schools in Washington. Its efforts allowed for driver education businesses to continue operating and sustain revenues while providing necessary training and services to the citizens of Washington in a safe and socially responsible manner.
“Driver education is a great way to give students a sense of normalcy and the opportunity to socialize – safely – right now,” said Joe Giammona, CEO of The Driver Training Group, and a national leader in advocacy for driver education. “I’m proud of the fact that we were able to help so many small businesses stay open during the pandemic. The team at Washington’s Department of Licensing was very collaborative and we were able to accomplish a lot in a short time.”
Through its work alongside Washington state officials, The Driver Training Group was able to replicate its success in other markets its brands operate in, including South Carolina, Ohio and Colorado.
“In addition to helping the driver education sector stand strong, we were able to share our internal processes, resources and technologies with small business owners in other industries to ensure the safety and security of everyone’s staff, students and our citizens.”
As the state and country looks ahead to unpredictable months in regards to the pandemic and possible closures, The Driver Training Group is proud to have laid the groundwork for systems and processes allowing the industry to continue operations. Additionally, citizens will be able to continue their progress towards getting their driver’s license.
