Our story so far

We build world-class technology for driving schools

At GoRoadie, we focussed on improving the lives of driving instructors and schools, whilst offering choice to student drivers.

In 2017, Barry and Michael started building GoRoadie when a friend was talking about how he wanted to get more students for his Dundee-based driving school. Over the next year they spoke to 100s of UK based instructors and showed them what they had came up with - turns out, they loved it.

From their, GoRoadie launched their pupil matching service, used by over 1,000 UK based driving instructors, however, in 2020 the world would slightly change.

With COVID-19, the team decided to stick to their mission of improving the lives of instructors, this time helping them save time and improve efficiencies with their world-class smart diary management app; GoRoadie Pro. Launching their V1 in September 2021 instructors loved the ease-of-use and innovative features like Live Waiting List and Enquiry Manager.

In 2022, GoRoadie Pro is now seen as the gold standard in the driving instructor management eco-system. Now with 100s of ADIs on the service, the team are excited to see how they can continue to improve and modernise the driver training market.
