a message to all pdi's doing part 3

hi i would just like to give the following advice to all you pd i's out there currently doing part 3 .....]KEEP AT IT AND DO NOT NEGLECT THE TIME YOU HAVE TO STUDY WITH..i passed part 1 and 2 first time with about 15 months left to pass part 3 with .i did 40 hours training as set with the instructor college,and at the end of this , my mind was blown away.ifelt that i needed more training but was reluctant to shell out more money for it.
  i chose not to go with a pink license so learning others was limited due to restrictions on my  car insurance and work.my wife was kind enough to help at being taught but she hated being told what to do so, this did not seem to help.
  so i kept putting my studies to one side,so therfore forgeting things, and now my 2 years from passing part 1 expires 0n 25/01/09........this is my second time round with t.i.c.. and will be my last.through all my own lack of interest/ confidence/knowledge  i am in a situation i cant get out of !!!so please  please please  do not follow my example , keept at it or else you will deeply regret it by letting yourself down and your family!!!.

Re: a message to all pdi's doing part 3

Hi Charlie
Don't give up just yet read this http://www.drivertrainingtoday.co.uk/fo … 711.0.html
you still have time to try and get your head around it, as long as you book your test before your 2 year
period is over, you can take it when you like i.e. book it for march if you can.
It was difficult for me to understand it all, like a jigsaw but as I put some of the pieces together
the overall picture became clearer. Work hard for the time left take the test as late as possible.
You've invested this much, now really go for it, you've got nothing to lose except the test fee.
You're not dead until you stop breathing, so keep sucking in the air.

Re: a message to all pdi's doing part 3

Phone up TIC and say you need some more training in preparation for your test.  Don't throw it all away now you have come this far.

Where are you based?  Perhaps someone on here will be able to help a bit?

Re: a message to all pdi's doing part 3

!!!!!!!! hell Charlie,you nearly brought a tear to my eye.Listen mate I am in N. Ireland training and after my training last week my trainer and another trainer(both indys) were talking about the state of Driver Instructing Training in Ireland(North) and I can tell you what I heard nearly made me sick, Pdi s being gharged 2500 quid by Driving Instructors because thats all they are over here(no disrespect) very few Ordit Reg here.One guy whom I passed my test with 21 years ago puts 3 Pdis in the car at once so do your maths,thats some income.
Rip off merchants is a good description for alot of them.I can really identify with alot of what you say,what with work and family,but I have gone with a trainer who charges PAYG and this is really the only way to go.
Get onto Blaine Walshes videos for a couple of weeks aswell really helps,if all else fails rub the slate clean take a small break and with the knowledge you have in your head start again mate,because as you said YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF AND FAMILY

Re: a message to all pdi's doing part 3

Charlie.. If your willing to travel a little, I'm willing to do some role play for Part III
You must be able to get to Leicester though.
I'm not ORDIT registered or anything like that, but i'm sure with most on here any help goes a long way !

I learnt a lot off "buddying" up, been around the block before and passed my part III, and yes I went thru the TIC.. another story

If your interested Private PM me, and i'll give you my mobile, location etc
