Instructor Training Course Newcastle Easypass Driving School

Our Background

Our EasyPass team have been providing Driver Training for over 25 years. All of our trainers are Grade A ordit registered with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). We provide continual professional development (CPD) and advanced training and coaching for the driver training industry

What does the course involve?
To become a qualified DVSA Approved Driving Instructor, you have to pass the DVSA test which is in three parts.

PART 1 DRIVING THEORY

This is done at home using materials we provide. You’ll be tested on road procedure, traffic signs and signals, driving test and laws, and instructional techniques

Please see link for further information on this test https://www.gov.uk/adi-part-1-test

PART 2 DRIVING ABILITY

Practical driving sessions with one of our instructor trainers will bring your personal driving ability up to the high standard required by the DVSA. You will receive 20 hours Part 2 training on a 1-to-1 basis.

Please see link for further information on this test https://www.gov.uk/adi-part-2-test/what-happens-during-test

PART 3 INSTRUCTIONAL ABILITY

For this part you’ll receive 40 hours of 1-to-1 training, with your trainer providing you with the skills and underpinning knowledge to deliver a course of effective driving lessons.

After passing all three parts of the DVSA tests, you’ll be awarded a green badge that signifies you’re a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI)

Please see link for further information on this test https://www.gov.uk/adi-part-3-test

STANDARDS CHECK

Training Driving Instructors For Over 20 Years.

Have you received your standards check appointment from the DVSA Or have failed your test and are looking for some additional training to improve your grade? Here at EASYPASS DRIVING SCHOOL we have over 20 years experience in instructor training and development, Let us help you achieve that grade A Result

The approved driving instructor (ADI) standards check assesses your ability to teach pupils.

The ADI standards check has replaced the ADI check test.

You have to take at least one ADI standards check during each 4-year period that you’re registered as an ADI.

You have to take a standards check even if you don’t have a car or aren’t working as an ADI.

You can be removed from the ADI register if you don’t book or go to your standards check.

You can only take standards checks in English or Welsh.

What happens at the standards check

A Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency examiner will watch you give a normal driving lesson to your pupil.

The examiner will look for evidence that you meet the national standards for driver and rider training.

What you’ll be marked on

You’ll be marked on 17 areas of competence that are grouped into 3 categories:

  • lesson planning
  • • risk management
  • • teaching and learning skills

The 17 areas of competence are listed in the ADI standards check report form, which the examiner will fill in during your check.

You’ll get a score from 0 to 3 for each of the 17 competencies, which are added up to work out your grade.

After you give the lesson, the examiner will discuss your performance and give you your grade. This will take about 15 minutes.

You can take your trainer or mentor with you, but they can’t take part in the lesson.

The top 5 reasons where instructors fail

Our latest analysis shows the top 5 areas where instructors fail to demonstrate competence are where they haven’t:

  • adapted the lesson plan, when appropriate, to help the pupil work towards their learning goals
  • taught the lesson in a style suited to the pupil’s learning style and current ability
  • encouraged the pupil to analyse problems and take responsibility for their learning
  • given the pupil appropriate and timely feedback during the session
  • given enough feedback to help the pupil understand any potentially safety-critical incidents

Lesson planning

You need to show you can adapt your lesson plan, where appropriate, to help your pupil work towards their learning goals.

You shouldn’t stick to a planned lesson because the needs of your pupil might change throughout the lesson and it’s important you can adapt to that.

Teaching and learning strategies

You need to be able to show you can teach your pupil in a style that’s suited for them. This means using methods that work best for them. For example, when giving verbal directions, your pupil might find it easier if you referred to left and right as ‘my side’ or ‘your side’.

It’s important you give your pupil appropriate and timely feedback rather than giving it all at the end of the lesson. Having regular discussions throughout the lesson helps your pupil understand what they might have done wrong.

You should encourage your pupil to analyse problems and take responsibility for their own learning. For example, if your pupil forgot to check their blind spot before pulling out, you might:

  • ask them if they know what they did wrong
  • explain why they need to make sure they check their blind spots next time

Risk management

Another area instructors commonly fail on is not giving pupils enough feedback on any potentially dangerous situations.

As well as providing your pupil with timely and appropriate feedback, it’s important that if they make any serious or dangerous faults they know what they’ve done and why it’s dangerous.

It’s up to you to make sure they understand this, so they don’t make the same mistake again.

At the end of the test

At the end of the standards check your examiner will give you feedback about any areas where you need to develop. You can refer to the national standard for driver and rider training to help you understand what you could be doing differently.

If you fail the standards check, the examiner will recommend that you seek further development from an instructor trainer.

Your standards check result

You’ll get your grade, along with your completed standards check form at the end of your standards check.

Total score Grade Description

0-30 Fail Your performance is unsatisfactory

31-42 Grade B You’ll stay on the approved driving instructors (ADI) register

43-51 Grade A You have shown a high standard of instruction and you’ll stay on the ADI register

You’ll automatically fail if:

  • you get a score of 7 or less in the ‘risk management’ category
  • the examiner stops the lesson because you’ve put yourself or someone else in danger

If you fail the standards check

You’ll have up to 2 more attempts to pass the standards check.

If you fail 3 times:

  • you’ll be removed from the approved driving instructors (ADI) register
  • you’ll have to retake the ADI tests to join the ADI register again

Driving Faults- Traffic lights, A167, Durham Road, Birtley.
There are two driving faults in this video clip.
#1 The driver has selected reverse gear instead of 1st gear and then moves away when the lights change to green, this resulting in the car rolling back and potentially into you.
#2 Drivers Road position is incorrect. They have crossed onto the cycle lane.

How close should you stop to the vehicle in front?
Traffic ahead of you can stop temporarily for a number of reasons: a pedestrian crossing, a junction, an intersection, some traffic lights or simply because of peak hour congestion.
You’ll see that some people will stop really close to the vehicle in front while others leave a huge gap. Exactly how much space should you leave?
The advice a driving instructor is likely to give you is “tyres and tarmac”. This means that you stop your vehicle where you can still see the tyres from the vehicle in front of you touching the tarmac. The actual distance will vary depending on what kind of vehicle you are driving and how short or tall you are, but the basic concept is to leave a safety buffer. Leaving a good sized space to the vehicle in front:
• Allows you room to pull out and around the vehicle if it stalls or breaks down
• Enables you to see further up the road (the closer you are to the vehicle in front, the more it blocks your view ahead)
• Gives you a buffer in case someone hits you from the rear – you’re less likely to be pushed into the vehicle in front which means less overall inconvenience and damage, and if you see it about to happen you can always move forward a bit to give them more space to stop in.
• Leaves a space for filtering motorcycles and cycles to use (motorcycles especially are likely to be quicker than other vehicles, so there’s no point in holding them up)
• Gives you a buffer if the vehicle in front rolls back towards you if you are facing uphill

Your position on the road
Driving in the correct position on the road is important for safety and helps traffic flow freely. In Great Britain, you should normally keep to the left side of the road.
Make sure you do not
• drive too close to the kerb, especially where there are pedestrians
• weave in and out between parked cars.
You must not drive
• on the pavement
• on the hard shoulder of a motorway
• on a cycle or bus lane when it’s in operation.
Keep scanning the road ahead of you to see when you might need to change your position in the road, such as when there are roadworks or cars parked at the side of the road. Make sure you move in good time so road users behind you can see what you’re doing and that they may need to change their position too.
When you need to change your road position, use the MSM/PSL routine to check
• ahead of you for road users coming towards you
• your mirrors and blind spots for vehicles behind or beside you.
Your position on the road can be affected by factors such as weather, road and traffic conditions.

Another starter with mr Gary Halliman

How to overtake cyclists

Overtaking someone on a bicycle is often nerve-wracking for both cyclists and drivers. Go slow, allow them plenty of space and follow this advice:

• Bikes may have to move out to avoid drains, potholes or debris on the road, so give them as much room as possible.
• The Highway Code Rule 163 says to give cyclists, motorcyclists and horse riders at least as much room as you would give overtaking a car.
• Don't overtake a cyclist if you can see that the road ahead narrows – you could end up squeezing them off the road.
• Highway Code rule 129 allows you to overtake a cyclist even if there’s a solid white line in the middle of the road, as long as they’re travelling at 10mph (16km/h) or less.
• Cyclists often travel in groups or side-by-side. This makes it easier to spot them, and easier to overtake than if a group's strung out over a longer distance. Only overtake when it’s safe to do so and allow as much room as possible.
