Training buddies

I see a lot of people posting asking for "training buddies" in their area.

What are the benefits of finding a training buddy, and what can you help eachother with exactly?  I ask because it may be worth setting up a special section of the site for finding training partners.

Re: Training buddies

A training buddy is a great thing to have,  you practice your driving together, and then practice your pst's together. It's also nice to have the support of someone who knows what you are going through as when you are training family don't really understand the pressures involved. I think it is important that you are both at the same point in your training and probably best if you have the same trainer, then you are both singing from the same hymn sheet.

Re: Training buddies

I agree with PJ
your buddy is not there to train you,
Just having somebody in the same boat as you, and willing to listen to you practising your instruction or to watch you drive, is a great help
-  Than with some of the best advice for free right here on the forum! any help needed is only a post away,

Re: Training buddies

How many Minis do you have Chris?
Just a couple of things regarding your website, although it looks flash, you don't actually state you have fully qualified DSA ADI's.
The Motorway lessons are at £50. is that per hour?
Also there is a spelling error you have written duel controlled vehicles, this should read DUAL.
Your main focus on your website is the car rather than your services as an ADI.  A pic of your green badge, possibly a DSA logo would go a long way to convince prospective clients that you are professionals.

Re: Training buddies

Practising PST's every second you have. One role play pupil, and one act as instructor.

Listen to each others briefings see what's missing, keep the good points throw out the crap. Keep on doing all the PST's and get to know them inside out. Also develop a teaching style, the PST's are the backbone to a lesson, you must develop them into something interesting. Practice your Q and A remember to teach what has been asked.

ie: don't start an Emergency Stop lesson then drift into something else, you won't have time to flit from one subject to another on a part 3 test.

Get all of your work overseen by a trainer, if in doubt ask him. Under no circumstances practice blindly, otherwise it could be counterproductive.
