New on here, and a new ADI!

Hello all!

I passed my part 3 at my 2nd attempt on Feb 11th this year. I had pst 5. On the first part, I was teaching the emergency stop on a reasonaby quiet urban dual carriageway (chosen by the examiner, of course!). After one particular attempt, we were pulled into the side of the road discussing it when I looked up to see a woman driving a Porsche Cayenne 4WD towards us on our carriageway... both the examiner and I waved frantically
to her so she stopped alongside the car and wound the window down. The examiner said to her it was a dual carriageway, and we both expected her to bump over the low central reservation to the correct side, but no, she proceeded to do a 7-point turn behind us. Quickly thinking what would I do if it were a real lesson, I got the examiner to move on... Then on the 2nd part, we had to pull out of the way pretty sharpish from a fire engine on a shout! yikes

I decided not to take out a franchise, as I live in Argyll and felt that they couldn't fill my diary any quicker than I could myself. It took me exactly a month to get my car organised and get started. I placed an ad in the local paper (1 reply that came to nought) and put up A4 posters in any local business that would take them. And I also tied up a couple of posters to a fence where the local highschool kids queue to buy lunch. That has brought me a couple of pupils. Facebook has also brought in several enquiries and I hope to start some pupils from that in the next couple of weeks.

My car is a Citroen DS3 and I had it fully liveried for maximum impact. A couple of my pupils chose me to teach them because of the car - it is way different from the plain Clios and Fiestas tha are around here.

I need a couple of other income streams, though. How does one go about training for speed awareness training, for example?

Prepared to be corrected, but there are no speed awareness courses in Scotland, are there?
ACPO guidelines have recently changed, and a definite requirement is a level 3 teaching qualification - PTTLLS
