A little advice for a new forum member

Hi,

I'm new to this forum, and I'd appreciate some advice on part 3 of the ADI qualification process.

I've recently left the Police after 20 "ahem" ish years service. Whilst in the Police, I qualified as a class 1 advanced driver, and then eventually as a Police instructor. I worked at my force driving school for a number of years, teaching standard, advanced, pursuit and security escort driving.

Having left the Police, I've decided to go down the ADI route, and if I'm successful, start working for myself as an instructor.

Now, I'm not naive (or big headed!) enough to think I'd sail through all three parts of the exam, as I'm acutely aware that teaching learners requires subtly different skills from teaching people who are already licence holders. Equally, though, I would also hope that my years of instructional experience should go at least some way towards getting me through the qualification process.

With this in mind, I passed part 1 on the 13th May, and part 2 on the 26th May, without any instruction.

I'm now considering my options for part 3. My initial thought is that I should study the pre-set tests in detail and just have a go. I'm fairly sure that my core competencies are up to scratch, and that My fault diagnosis and correction skills are still ok, so I might just put a few weeks intensive study into the pre-set tests and see how I go on.

Alternatively, I'm also considering booking some time with an ADI trainer to polish up on my skills. The only problem is, I've spoken to a couple of local trainers, who both seemed determined to sell me a fairly long course of instruction, rather than something a bit more intensive tailored around my previous experience.

What do you think? Should I do some swotting up and just have a go at part 3? Or should I keep looking for a suitable trainer? Are my previous skills sufficient to get me through part 3, or am I living in dreamland?

Many thanks in advance,

Reg

Re: A little advice for a new forum member

Very well done so far Reg!
Yes, bet you'll be better than most. It really peeves me off when people put profit before integrity  roll IMO if you have integrity the profit will sort itself out in a long term. It sounds like the trainers you've found were after the profit alone. Just like my private dentist which I'm about to change :x

What area are you in? You may find some recommendations as to who you could use for part 3. It would be good for you to see what part 3 is all about with a trainer before going to a test.

...and btw how do those mobile van cameras work? If there's a line of cars going pass them all doing 60 in a 50, how many cars are getting a ticket?  tongue

Re: A little advice for a new forum member

If your in the NW i can reccommend a trainer who will charge on a pay as you go basis.

If your in the Staffordshire area there is 'Hector' [on this forum]who may do similar.

Re: A little advice for a new forum member

Hi Reg, learning the PSTs is not the be all and end all, I would suggest that you need to get a feel for the industry, spend a good bit of time with an experienced trainer, I would want you to spend at least 30 hours, this is not to rip you off financially, but to help you find the teaching skills you need to train learners, the training to an advanced level of a person who is already reasonably well skilled (and motivated by the way) is VERY different to training learner drivers, and then there are the business skills you will need to be successful.

I know you will goet conflicting advice, I have been doing this job for many years, have no financial gain to make from advising you in this way, indeed I have probably just put myself right out of your thoughts in terms of the training!!

Hope you understand I am trying to give you honest and well structured advice

Good honest and sensible post Martyn. There are plenty who can do PST's but can't teach for toffees, and the poor old pupils suffer because of it.  wink Ev

Re: A little advice for a new forum member

Hi Reg,

Well done for passing Parts 1 and 2 I know how difficult it is to change your Roadcraft style of driving to the DSA style.

Now just to add my two pence worth in, As you have said already teaching the Police is different to teaching learners. It is apprent that you are self-motivated so how much training you would need would be impossible for anyone on here to advise without seeing how good you are, so I would suggest that as a minimum get a trainer to assess you on your needs.

To get you thinking a bit I would like to ask you a question

If you was looking for an Instructor to teach your child, Would you like the Instructor to teach them to only pass the test or would you like the Instructor to teach them to drive?


Now apply the answer to your own situation do you really want to only learn the PST's or develop a more in depth knowlege of being learner Instructor, after all as an ADI you are teaching your students a life skill and some day will meet them comming the other way !


Even when things go wrong you can learn from them
