Re: cardington speacial test

Cardington special A and Diamond special are a higher standard than Part 2. You are allowed 3 faults with Cardington and 2 with Diamond.

Re: cardington speacial test

I've passed both these tests, and train of rthem.

Basically:

DIAmond Advanced Similar to Part 2, I'd say slightly higher standard; 1 hour; 6 minor errors maximum; All mans, except Emergency Stop

DIAmond Special Very high standard, 90 minutes; 2 minor unrepetaed errors, maximum; All mans, except Emergency Stop

Think you're a good driver?  Go for these tests & prove it!

Re: cardington speacial test

Out of interest why do you feel the DIAmond advanced is a slightly higher standard than part 2. What makes it different? In my understanding it is marked the same way as part two, same manoeuvres and same time length. I always thought they were the same? Im just interested here smile

I really want to take the DIAmond special. Waiting times are massive here as well!!

Re: cardington speacial test

Because from what I recall of the marking sheet, some of the faults are grouped together more than they are on the DL25.  But it is based on the Part 2, and the standard is supposed to be the same.

IfI have a PDI that's overly concerned ab out a Part 2 (especially if they've lost an attempt or 2, by substandard training elsewhere) I advise them to take the DIAmond Advanced first.  They can get the first hand experience (which Mock Tests don't give really), and normally give the candidiate a bit more confidence - if they're overly concerned.  In reality, most decline this suggestion - but it's there.
