Congratulations

I took my Diamond also yesterday and passed with 5 minors smile

Probably more pleased than I should be, but I did a mock last week and got 10  sad .  I have my pt 2 on Tuesday, so a little time to work on the errors.

As the DIA is an insurance company (well, at least that is how it started) don't they give discounts for Diamond?

Re: Passed Diamond Advanced

Surely as A.D.I's we should be looking at taking test of a higher standard than Diamond advanced and the I.A.M.

How about the Diamond Special test? You can only have two minors with this. The I.A.M and Diamond advanced are more for Joe public.

Re: Passed Diamond Advanced

i really cant wait to do the diamond special. i tried getting info on it from the dia pack but nothing came only the diamond advanced. im taking it that you must be a green ticket holder to take it? is it to the same standard as the diamond advanced just with two minors? how do you get to take the cardington? thats my ultimate aim. is that any different?

Re: Passed Diamond Advanced

Pegasus - Good point. I did not think as it is for my family use.

Trumper - As I have not passed pt 2 yet, surpose I am still Joe Public. My reason for doing the DIAmond was as a "live" mock for my pt2

Re: Passed Diamond Advanced

Anybody can take the Diamond special test. You do not need to be an A.D.I.

Only two minors for this test. You can only take test in certain parts of the country.

Re: Passed Diamond Advanced

If your serious about advanced driving then speak to RoSPA, either type it into Google to get to the main site then find the driving section or type in RoADA which is the regional version.

RoSPA training is the foundation of Police driving, it was The League of Safe Drivers originally founded as The Finchley League of Safe Drivers by Louise Duncan in 1955 relying heavily on Hendon Police drivers for it's tuition.

The course has three standards, Bronze (Probably equivilant to an IAM pass) Silver (A good consistant drive but with a few mistakes) and Gold (virtually a faultless drive to the system). The test is approx. an hour and a half long and is conducted by a serving or retired class one Police instructor. It is, predictably, thorough but surprisingly relaxed (in my experience) and if you do something that at the de-brief the examiner criticises, providing you can justify it they would not fault you on it. In fact I have had conversations on differing techniques with examiners during the exam and adopted their suggestion, or not , depending on circumstances.

Importantly, the unique element of RoSPA is it'e re-test every three years (I'm not sure about Diamond) so your standards have to be consistently high. I hate to have a go at another organisation but I have seen IAM drivers who passed their test 20 years ago and were dreadful but basked in the glory of being IAM approved. Oh, and my last RoSPA examiner quit IAM because of it's no re-test policy.

Finally, if you joing Kent RoADA membership costs £20 and all the training is provided free by volounteer observers.

Hope it helps.

David.

Re: Passed Diamond Advanced

Diamond Special Test .

You have to be re-tested every 2years. It is the same standard as the DSA's Cardington test.

I've joined it about month and half ago but just got the card and no one had been in touch with me re training. how long does it take for them to do so?

Re: Passed Diamond Advanced

You should have had an outline of times and procedures etc. in the letter that came with your membership card. If your not happy, call them and find out what's going on, they won't mind.  Do remember, however, that the observers are volounteers and give up their time free so there is a demand for their time.

Hope you pass.
