Re: 500 quid for part one

Hi,
I personally wouldn't. You can buy homestudy packs from Driving School suppliers for alot less than that. It depends on whether you can study at home alone and take it all in or whether you need a classroom environment with a tutor to guide you. 500.00 is a big chunk that could be better spent on part 2 or 3 tuition. That's my personal opinion anyway. What does everyone else think :?:

Re: 500 quid for part one

Hi

Strongly agree with "adi" £500 + £50 is more than I would pay.  I did my part 1 on a home study pack, and passed, I think it cost £99 +exam from one of the training establishements.

Similar (if not better) ones are available from £86 at www.desktopdriving.com  or  www.rcmmarketing.co.uk

Whichever route  you decide to go, you do need to be prepared to study (and have somewhere quiet  to do it).

An invaluable source of online advice or training is www.smartdriving.co.uk

cheers

Re: 500 quid for part one

Have to agree with everyone above.

My husband Kev paid for 1 of these class room courses, it wasn't worth the money he paid for it!

Get your self a home study pack, but just make sure you set yourself a study timetable, that way you'll be more likey to knuckkle down and get on with it.

Good luck and keep us informed of how it's going!

Re: 500 quid for part one

I agree with the above, I trained with BSM, not the cheapest, and paid out around £120 for part one training, albeit some 10 years ago. That included classroom training, mock tests etc. However now the DSA publish the question bank, you can get the questions and mock tests on CDrom. I reckon you can get the study material for £30+ test fees.

Re: 500 quid for part one

As has been said, you can get the full question bank from the DSA for about £30.  If you don't study well on your own, why not see if there is anyone else in your area and make a study group.  You don't need to publish your address here,  just the area, and see what the reaction is,  much better to spend a pound or two on petrol, than that wacking great amount,

Re: 500 quid for part one

£500 for Part 1 is a complete rip-off.  Dont even consider it !!

Get the question bank and the ADI 14 from the DSA, the CD ROM from Morrissons and you can do it on your own.

It is my view that anyone who cannot study for the Part1 exam on their own is probably not up to becomingt an ADI anyway !
