Breeze Volkswagen becomes sole supplier to Bill Plant Driving School

29 April 2019

Volkswagen has become the new sole supplier for Bill Plant Driving School, with the nationwide driver training firm now using the T-Roc and Golf models as its tuition vehicles in a Volkswagen-only fleet.

Breeze Volkswagen’s corporate team, which covers the Dorset and Hampshire region, secured the national partnership with Bill Plant Motoring School.

The relationship between Breeze Volkswagen and Bill Plant Driving School began in late 2017 with 200 Golfs delivered to instructors in early 2018 when more than 50 percent of the driving school’s franchises chose to switch to the Volkswagen brand citing its whole life cost for the reason. Now, the success of that association sees Volkswagen become the sole supplier for the driving school’s fleet by the end of the year.

Deliveries of the T-Roc to the Bill Plant Driving School fleet commenced in March. Hundreds of cars have been delivered to Bill Plant Driving School instructors across the UK so far this year, with the potential for the school’s fleet to grow further still, as the business opens more franchises utilising Volkswagen Golf or T-Roc models as instructor vehicles.

Where the Golf is used, it is the value-packed Match model that is specified – the equipment loaded Volkswagen comes with Discover satellite navigation as standard. This, in particular, is ideal for the new area of the driving test in which learners must navigate using in-car satellite navigation.

The T-Roc appears in the Bill Plant Driving School fleet in SE specification. Its high seating position provides a good view of the road ahead while its comfort and convenience features, and the ergonomic layout of its interior, ensure a stress-free start for students learning with the Bill Plant Driving School.

Martin Pye, Corporate Manager at Breeze Volkswagen said: “The Golf is Volkswagen’s most popular model, being the second best-selling car in the country, so it’s easy to see why learners can benefit from a Golf being their introduction to driving life.

“The T-Roc SUV, with its numerous safety features, elevated seating position, and compact size, has the ideal combination of qualities to make learners feel at ease when venturing out on the road. Volkswagen prides itself on the safety of its cars, so we’re delighted Bill Plant Driving School chose the Golf and T-Roc to create a whole new generation of Volkswagen fans.”

Tom Hixon, Head of Instructor Support at Bill Plant Driving School commented: “We’ve received tremendously positive feedback from our driving instructors and pupils about the new Volkswagen Golf, and we also welcome the T-Roc to the Bill Plant Driving School fleet.

“Every week hundreds of pupils will have their first experience of driving with Bill Plant Driving School inside either a Volkswagen Golf or T-Roc. This is a tremendous partnership for Bill Plant Driving School as we continue to grow our business in 2019.”

Bill Plant Driving School also uses the Volkswagen tuition vehicles across its nationwide Driving Instructor Training Academy and Corporate Fleet Management.

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
