Re: TRAINING PDI

A good trainer. Ask around your  local area. If you've handed your cash over to one of the 'Big Ones' still train with them and suppliment it with payg indy trainer.

Re: TRAINING PDI

Part 3 of the exam is a practical driving test that assesses the trainee's instructional ability.
TAKING THE PRACTICAL DRIVING TEST
You can't take the practical driving test until you've passed the theory and hazard perception tests. The practical test is about making sure that those who pass are competent and safe in the basic skills of driving.
During the practical test you will be expected to drive for about 40 minutes in various road driving situations. You will be asked to perform two of the three reversing manoeuvres. You may also be required to perform an emergency stop.
IN ORDER TO PASS THE PRACTICAL DRIVING TEST, YOU MUST DRIVE:
Without committing any serious or dangerous faults or without committing more than 15 driving errors of a less serious nature.

Dangerous Driving Faults - a fault that results in actual danger. Commit such a fault and you will fail the practical test immediately.

Serious Driving Faults - is when a potentially dangerous incident occurs, when the candidate reveals a recurring driving fault or fails to perform a manoeuvre correctly. Receive a serious fault and you fail the practical test.

Minor Driving Faults - less serious faults, such as hesitating too long at a junction, faults that don't provide any immediate danger. Receive 16 or more minor driving faults and you will fail the practical test.

Hope this helps....

Re: TRAINING PDI

theorytest - the information you posted is incorrect.
The Part 3 test is  aqualifying examination will assess your ability to give effective instruction - The 'ability to instruct' test covers three main key subject areas:

core competencies
instructional techniques
instructor characteristics.


This includes :
the quality of your instruction
your ability to pass your knowledge on to pupils
The test is in two parts - each of which lasts about half an hour. You will be asked to show your knowledge and ability by giving practical instruction to the examiner, who will play the role of a pupil.

The examiner will play two of the following roles:

a beginner or partly trained pupil
a pupil who is about test standard
a qualified driver taking driver development training
For each of the two roles, the examiner will choose a test that includes a preset combination of two of these exercises:

safety precautions on entering the car, and explanation of the controls
moving off and making normal stops
driving the vehicle backwards and while so doing entering limited openings to the right or left
turning the vehicle round in the road to face the opposite direction, using forward and reverse gears
parking close to the kerb, using reverse gears
practical instruction in how to use mirrors and how to make an emergency stop
approaching and turning corners
judgement of speed and general road positioning
dealing with coming out onto T-junctions
dealing with all aspects of crossroads
dealing with pedestrian crossings and giving appropriate signals by using your indicator and your arm in a clear and unmistakable manner
meeting, crossing the path of and overtaking other vehicles, including allowing enough clearance to include following distance for other road users
It is essential that you understand what this test calls for. You should listen very carefully when the examiner explains what is needed for each part. If you don't understand, you should ask the examiner to repeat the explanation. Bear in mind that during the exercises the examiner is acting as a pupil with various levels of experience.

A supervising officer may also sit in on the test. They are there to check the examiner - not you. They will not have any say in how your test is carried out, or in the result.



I take it, you are not an ADI?

Re: TRAINING PDI

Hi chazd,

Make sure above everything else that you understand and can use the core competencies.

Get plenty of practical experience of using them because when you are sat next to the SEADI they will want to see that the faults they give you will be spotted, analysed properly and corrected through the appropriate use of instructional techniques.

I would also go with georges advice above if you don't feel that you are getting enough training.

I don't know who you are training with but I wouldn't sign any training contracts with anyone especially if they tell you that the training is 'free'. There is usually a catch such as a contract that ties you to a particular school as a franchisee for ages and that might cost you a fortune.

Other than that, ask lots of questions, get as much practice as possible and enjoy yourself.
