“Refreshing and informative”

All our driving instructors are encouraged to undergo continuous professional development [CPD].

Some take the BTEC Level 4 course offered by Tri-Coaching partnership. Surepass also provides in-house workshops to further our driving instructors knowledge.

Just recently Graham Hooper from Tri-Coaching gave a thought provoking incite into the forthcoming changes to the ADI P3 test. Then there was Diane Hall’s from “L of a way to pass” – her workshop on helping understand our driving instructors to teach pupils with learning difficulties got rave reviews:

Here’s one review from our ORDIT registered Senior Training Manager in Scotland, Greg Davidson:

“Thanks you so much for organising yesterday. I thought it was a great day. Both the morning which I found refreshing and informative.  It is always great to meet new people also and see how they are progressing with their journey in our industry. I hope I brought a little of my experience to the day, but I certainly gained from the day. With respect to Diane (& Chris) it was really thought provoking and backed up on what I have been doing this year on my BTEC Level 4 course with Tri-Coaching partnership. “

Bill Plant driving school rescued from administration

We’re delighted to see that it’s been possible to rescue Bill Plant Driving School Ltd following the losses associated with their change in operations, as reported by Insider Media Ltd.

One question we’re sometimes asked by potential new driving instructors interested is where is it safe to place their money when they’re looking at training courses and what should they do if a driving school goes into administration or is bought out as happened to Bill Plant, RED, BSM, AA, Instructor College and others.

It’s a difficult question to answer, but things to consider are:

  1. How long has the business been operating?
  2. Are funds kept in a client account or ‘put into a pot’ to fund other aspects of the operation?
  3. Is the company ORDIT registered? [it’s a measure of financial stability in part]

If you do have concerns about handing over your hard earned money to any driving school – and who would blame you given the names of some of the schools that have been in the press recently – then come and talk to us. It’s a free call to 0800 08 38 441.

Part Three pass in Bridgend

Lynne Burgess ably passed her Part Three qualifying exam to be a driving instructor recently.

Lynne purchased the Platinum course in May 2015 and was assigned to her ORDIT trainer Mark Crook.

She passed her Theory test on the first attempt in September the same year and completed her advanced driver training within one month.

After a couple of false starts she passed the advanced test in March 2016 and finished her Part Three driving instructor training by June 2016.

Lynne took advantage of the trainee instructors licence, quickly established herself as a popular driving instructor in Bridgend.

We’re thrilled for her.

Part 3 pass in Ashton

Well done Waqar Mir from Aston-under-Lyne, Lancashire on passing your Part Three test last week.

Waqar purchased the Gold Driving Instructor Training course in October 2015. His induction with Senior Training manager, Anthony Norgrove was completed by 26th October.

Waqar sailed through his first test, passing on 26th January 2016 and then went on to pass the advanced driving test on 5th April 2016.
