Deathwatch: Red Driving School in administration
If The Actor Peter Halpin is reading this (and we’re pretty sure he is) he’ll be distraught at the news that the parent company of Red Driving School has gone into administration. After all, he starred in their adverts, playing a Red driving instructor.
Or maybe he won’t be in the slightest bit arsed. That’s because he isn’t actually a Red driving instructor but a supremely gifted actor instead, a human chameleon who can be a driving instructor one moment and an ‘impartial advisor’ for Simplify Digital the next.
Still, today isn’t about The Actor Peter Halpin – it’s about LVG, the parent group of Red Driving School, Red Instructor Training and Red Fleet Training. They’ve plummeted into administration today and fears must be growing among their 400 operational staff (the instructors are all franchisees.)
The administrators MCR say that they’re confident a buyer can be found, but then they would wouldn’t they?
