History

Founded in April 2016, GoRoadie launched as a beta in January 2017 offering prospective driving students the ability to find the instructor for them.

Initially, only released in Dundee, GoRoadie is being shaped and molded in our home town before spreading out to the wider UK audience.

During 2016, we spent time crafting the platform, speaking to local driving instructors and building something that they would find useful.

At the start of 2017, we managed to bag our first student. From that point, we have been moving faster and faster. That meant we need to introduce payments to cover our outgoings on servers, data and advertising in May. Before doing so, we met the active driving instructors and made some major improvements to accommodate payments.

In the coming months we are looking improve our user experience, add new world-class features and to increase the number of instructors in Dundee, and to launch in our second city - Edinburgh.
