Who wrote it?
It’s been written by Brian M Stratton ADI, one of the UK’s highest qualified and most widely experienced ADI trainers. Brian is a Grade A [51/51] ADI and was previously a Grade 6 six times consecutively. He has written many acclaimed books for the industry and has also produced audio CDs and DVDs.
Why is it called 1771?
Because at 17 it’s the start of your driving career, and at 71 you can reflect on your experiences so far and look ahead to continued safe motoring. The ideal combination is an old head on young shoulders: a blend of experience and the correct techniques. It’s up-to-date and comprehensive.
Who is it designed for?
Learners will benefit by preparing for lessons and researching topics prior to attending for training. For PDIs and ADIs it provides essential information about risk management. No more grey areas or uncertainty about what is the best advice and current best practice. It’s the ideal complementary book to use alongside Core Competencies Made Even Easier and The ADI Standards Check: Essential Information.
What makes it different to other driving books?
It gives a fresh view on an old topic. With the driving test and ADI Part 3 changing in 2017, it’s an ideal opportunity to offer guidance on current best practice, both in driving and teaching. The book also offers a very wide range of comments from drivers at all ages and stages of their driving careers. It features the experience of not only the author, but numerous other drivers, instructors, trainers and former DVSA staff. They say you can’t buy experience. You can now. This book has insider hints and tips you won’t find anywhere else.
What are the chapters?
There are skill sets for all driving topics and they all have risks and consequences, rules, tools and expectations and hints and tips from a wide range of drivers. There are also chapters on: Risk, Phrases and Sayings used in Driving, Selfie Advice, What Grinds Your Gears?, Did You Know?, How Examiners and Instructors Become Qualified, The Driving Test, Are You Test Ready?, After The Test, The new 2017 Test, Night Driving and Adverse Weather, and Distracted Driving. It provides key information in order to minimise risk and maximise safety.
How has it been tested?
The book has been extensively road tested and read by learners, PDIs, ADIs, former examiners and supervising examiners, plus the general motoring public over its two year development. Hundreds of drivers of all ages and at all stages of driving were interviewed for the ‘What Grinds Your Gears?’ and the ‘Selfie Advice’ chapters.

Grade A and Maximum Score of 51/51 achieved by ADIs by Reading The Book: ‘The ADI Standards Check: Essential Information’
“…I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic publication which helped me greatly… I recently did my Standards Check and thought I would share my good news with you – I scored 51/51! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!” Shafiq ADI
“…So, yesterday I had my test and I passed with an A, I got 51 out of 51!! I was ecstatic and pretty shocked! I found the book very useful… I read it through and through… I’ve only been an instructor for 6 years… there were certainly a few things that I had to brush up on and also introduce to my teaching… I am convinced that I wouldn’t have got that score without reading the book first… So, I would just like to say ThankYou!!!” Louise ADI

INSTRUCTOR TRAINING & PUBLICATIONS
INSTRUCTOR TRAINING & PUBLICATIONS was founded by Brian M Stratton ADI in 1988 and is dedicated to delivering training which is constructive, helpful and clearly targeted at specific disciplines.
Outstanding results have been consistently achieved over the years at all levels: ADI, Cardington, ORDIT, Check Test and, most recently, the Standards Check where seven clients consecutively were awarded a Grade A, with fifteen [and counting] As having been achieved in just six months.
Initially offering training for the ADI Part 1, 2 and 3, the range of services has grown to include: Standards Check Guidance, Cardington Coaching, ORDIT Training, Examiner Preparation, CPD Coaching, IAM and RoSPA Preparation and, most recently, Media Training. Brian explains why this last element has been added: “There has recently been an explosion in the number of driving programmes being commissioned such as The Undriveables and Barely Legal Drivers.” Naturally, the production companies are always on the look out for instructors to star in such programmes and it makes sense to have some media training before you put yourself in the glare of the TV lights. Included in this arena is also radio programmes which often feature driving topics and need authoritative people to give advice and guidance. You could then be the ‘go-to guy or girl’ in your area when a talking head is required for motoring matters. This will broaden your network, enhance your CV and can provide another revenue stream.
Another avenue that could appeal is presenting Driver Awareness and Education Courses and for these it would be useful to have some training to enable you to present confidently and knowledgeably.
The first of the Publications was The ADI Part 3: Essential Information, and the most recent is The ADI Standards Check: Essential Information. In between those two, and spanning the intervening twenty-six-years, have been a variety of books about the L test, and learning to drive, most notably The Driving Test: Essential Information, Hill Start Blues and L on Wheels. Books about training followed, with the publication of 6 Steps to a Higher Check Test Grade and Core Competencies Made Easy. A range of audio CDs was the next addition to the range. The Blueprint Series is a set of twenty audio CDs which cover all aspects of the PSTs for ADI Part 3. There is also a set of revision questions for the ADI Part 1, presented as a set of ten CDs they cover all of the necessary bands and topics for the ADI theory test. DVDs were added to the range with The Driving Test: Essential Information, designed to help pupils prepare for their driving test by explaining exactly what is involved, and debunking the various myths about the test. The next DVD was The Check Test: Success in 6 Easy Steps, a comprehensive guide to the check test, covering all of the key aspects.
