Part 2 Driving Instructor Test
You have passed your part one advanced theory and ready to make a great start on passing your part 2 driving instructor test. Many people are just like you and will attempt to pass the part 1 on their own as it really is all about self study and if you are unsure about anything, answers to questions can be quickly found.
However training for the part 2 is a different kettle of fish entirely. While you will want to practice your skills when you are out driving…even to the shops, you are going to need training, that can be online, one to one with an instructor or both. There is a tendancy for people to use online training along side 121 tuition and with the right course and trainer it can be a great method to help you develop your skills. The ability to watch, and re watch training videos is very valuable.
MAJOR WARNING – Be Careful of Alphabet Training – 90% FAILURE Rate
It is estimated that around 90% of people are failing to achieve their goal of becoming a driving instructor and this appalling level of failure has been similar year in, year out, for a very long time. A huge part of the issue is to what I refer to as “Alphabet Training”
Many ADI trainers offering ADI part 2 training will teach you in a way a child is taught the alphabet, you know, a,b c,d,e,f etc.
That style of teaching encourages you to memorize a question and the answer, which is fine until you are asked to solve a problem…
So, what are you going to do when the examiner asks “what should have happened?” “How could that have been done differently?” “How would you rate that?” “What are your thoughts concerning..?” When you go through Alphabet Training and you are asked questions like this, that is when you become unstuck.
For The Part 2 Driving Instructor Test Training
I Recommend The Tri Coaching Partnership.
The Tri Coaching Partnership help you in a different way, rather than using the analogy of the alphabet I prefer to use the analogy of spelling. You are no longer committing to memory a question and answer but now have the skills to work out answers. Therefore when the examiner asks you a question which requires some thought, and not just a memory quiz, you have every chance of meeting the standard required to pass become a driving instructor.
