Recommended books for Fleet theory

I'm looking to become fleet registered (big plans next year!!!) but at the moment don't have the funds available for one of the courses  sad sad sad sad

So, I've decided to work through parts 1 and 2 myself and then decide on part 3 when I get there. I've got the question bank from the DSA but don't just want to learn the answers to questions by Rote.

Apart from the standard ADI books (which I have loads of, including RoadCraft for cars and bikes), can anyone recommend any other books. The DSA recommend the LGV driving manual, is this really necessary?

Thanks

Carl

Re: Recommended books for Fleet theory

Fleetcraft has been published, it is a rerun of roadcraft with minor changes.

Running through the fleet question data bank should not be a matter of learning by rote. As an experienced trainer they should pose few difficulties, with may be a few you might need to recap on.

Thanks Doug. I did have a quick look through the questions and found them a lot like the ADI question bank, with the odd difference.

I think I'll just stick with what I've got and see how I get on.

Re: Recommended books for Fleet theory

Roadcraft.  But, as Doug said, Fleetcraft is almost Roadcraft with a different cover on it.

If you have started browsing some of the questions you will probably have found Roadcraft mentioned.

Having already passed the RoADAR test at Gold you have a good idea of what you will be looking for.  Are you, or have you considered becoming an observer?  That can help to give practise at Fleet type training.

Other work that can help as a pre-cursor to fleet is NDIS (National Driver Improvement Scheme). See Essex NDIS

Some of this you may well have done already but, hopefully, some may help.
