Driving Instructor Training – PART 3

Anticipation of other road users and the taking of appropriate action.

Sound judgement of distance speed and timing.

Consideration for the convenience and safety of other road users.

The routes used for the above test will include roads that carry heavy and or fast moving traffic; they will also cover various roads and traffic conditions, i.e urban and rural conditions.

You need to perform the following manoeuvres and you are only allowed 6 minor faults. The test is similar to the L test for learners but slightly longer and of a much higher standard.

  1. Move away straight ahead or at an angle.
  2. Overtake, meet or cross the path of other vehicles and take appropriate course without undue hesitancy.
  3. Turn left and right corners correctly without undue hesitancy.
  4. Emergency Stop.
  5. Drive the vehicle in reverse gear and whilst doing so enter limited openings to the right and left taking effective all round observation.
  6. Turn the vehicle to face the opposite direction using forward and reverse gears with effective observation.
  7. Reverse park the vehicle into a space behind a parked car within two car lengths and parallel with the kerb taking effective observation.

OR

Reverse park into a parking bay with due regard for other vehicles and pedestrians whilst taking effective observations.

At Quail’s Instructor Training College, you as the trainee will receive our PART TWO WORKBOOKS; in addition to this you will receive several DVD’S. You will also receive 10 hours training which we have found in the past to be more than adequate. The 10 hrs will be split up into 5 blocks of 2 hrs, we recommend that in between each training session the trainee should go out and practice 2 hrs a day on subjects they have been directed to improve. All tuition is on a one to one basis and is 100% in car tuition.
