COURSE |
This course will prepare you for the ADI Standards Check, which is a check that all ADIs have to take periodically to ensure their tuition is up to standard. Don’t wait until your invitation arrives, consider taking training now so that you can begin using the new techniques in your lessons and be prepared for when the big day arrives.

COME AND JOIN THE ‘A‘ TEAM

Get that Grade A and take your career further.

Listed below are some I prepared earlier:

IT’S NOW 245 GRADE As [Including six superb results of 51/51 and eight of 50/51]

   • Will it be your first Standards Check?

   • Are you concerned about the new test?

   • Just qualified at Part 3 and concerned that you won’t pass the new Standards Check?

    Taken a Standards Check and got a low B Grade and now want to improve for your next one?

   • Already failed a Standards Check?

   • Down to your third and final attempt?

I’ve already helped many ADIs who fall into the above categories.

CONTENT |
This course comprises a detailed explanation of the Standards Check report form, with the emphasis firmly placed on Risk Management.

Mock Standards Checks will be conducted during the day in order to provide you with an even deeper understanding of the marking criteria, and to experience the examiner’s mindset when marking the form.

On the course you will be supplied with a set of printed notes, including the Standards Check form, an example of a reflective log and a CPD certificate of attendance.

DURATION |
The minimum period is one day, which is five hours: 09:30 – 15:30 with an hour’s break for lunch. You would be welcome to take more than one day, either consecutively or split – for example one day in the near future and then another day shortly before your Standards Check to ensure you are fully prepared.

COST |
The cost of this course is £365 + VAT at current rate, per day. Additional days, when booked and paid for at the same time as the first day, will be discounted.

NEED TO KNOW:
The ADI Standards Check lasts for 1 hour during which the examiner will observe you teaching a pupil. Your performance will be assessed under three main headings: Lesson Planning, Risk Management and Teaching & Learning Strategies.

To pass, you must score a minimum of 31 out of 51, and your score on Risk Management must be a minimum of 8 out of 15. If you score fewer than 8 on Risk Management it will be an automatic fail, even if your overall score is 31 or more.

There is currently no fee payable by the ADI for the Standards Check. It is funded from the registration fee that ADIs pay every four years. This system is likely to change and ADIs will self-manage the booking system for their own Standards Check and pay a separate fee.

PLEASE NOTE: Under the new legislation for the Standards Check you will need to provide a pupil. The role-play option that previously existed for the old ‘check test’ is no longer available. There are no exceptions to this.

So if you’re an ADI resident abroad, please contact us to arrange a bespoke package where we can help you with arranging a pupil, local test centre choice and route advice.

The same applies if you’re a UK resident and you’re perhaps not able to source a pupil. or your business has lapsed, or you’re taking a break from teaching for a while and haven’t got easy access to pupils.

NOTE: If you buy two or more training days together you will receive a discount.

Clients visit for training from all over the UK, from the Outer Hebrides to Cornwall and many places in-between.

“…Just finished my first day teaching today and I am absolutely buzzing… I have looked forward to this day for a couple of years and it was worth the wait!What a day! Too many highs and not very many lows… I only had 3 students, two were complete beginners and one has had several lessons a couple of years ago… The two brand new drivers I got to the moving off and stopping stage…  In fact, I got them to moving off, building up speed, road position (getting into 2nd) and safely stopping… They were both on cloud 9. The relatively experienced driver drove all the way home after thinking she couldn’t… She was delighted… I now totally understand the thrill of being part of someone’s development.

Thank you for giving me the skills I needed… ”
Janice, ADI

“…Just got back from test and it’s a great result – 46 and a Grade A… So pleased to be in the A Team… thanks so much for your support… I liked the work we did on risk management and Q&A which was my weakness… once again, thank you… “
Steve, ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 88%. Risk Management 13/15] 16.01.19

“…Yes, I’ve done it…passed today with a Grade A and a 47… your training is very professional and really helped me to believe in myself… it was reassuring to know that you believed in me and helped to improve my Q & A and Risk Management… “
MohammadADI, Grade A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 14/15] 19.11.18

“…Just wanted to thank you, and let you know that as of this morning I am a fully paid up member of the A Team… really enjoyed the training and it made me realise I had to change after many years in the industry… the key improvements over my first test were the doubling of my scores on lesson planning and adding 10 points on teaching and learning strategies… Thank you… “
Angela, ADI, Grade A [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 11/15] 30.10.18

“…You can put me in your A Team… It was a great lesson – I had a very good instructor… this was only seven months after I qualified at my Part 3 so I’m absolutely thrilled to get a Grade A 46 on my very first Standards Check… the training that helped me most was to do with planning… the mock tests really worked for me as well… the pupil narrative was superb and hit the spot to make it pupil-centred… the examiner liked that a lot and commented: ‘Overall a well conducted lesson using CCL [client-centred learning] methods]’ “
Adela, ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 88%. Risk Management 12/15] 29.10.18

“…It went like a dream… The structures and frameworks we spoke about really helped… during the training it was the risk management and coaching elements that were most useful… The examiner said it was a good lesson… Thank you so much for all your help and building my confidence, I really couldn’t have done it without you… “
Colin, ADI, Grade A [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 13/15] 10.10.18

“…My first SC today and I scored a strong B with 39… you emphasised the importance of having a clear plan and I followed that through in detail… your starter for 10 was ideal and got me off to a flying start… this settled me down and I then went through the lesson methodically… I realise now that I should have had another day’s training and I would have got the A… will definitely return for training on a regular basis to make sure I don’t slide… Thank you for making it happen… ”
Andrew, ADI, after a day’s training

“…Success!! Grade A 47…I am delighted and hugely indebted to you… I now understand how to ask rather than tell… and your advice to divide the lesson into blocks worked exceptionally well… So… This morning… It happened… From 27F to 47A… Hopefully, a convincing place in your ‘A’ Team file with grateful thanks for all your guidance and help.”
LisaADI, Grade A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 14/15] 04.09.18

“…I am pleased to let you know that I am now a Grade A instructor with a score of 46… The key things that helped most were when you gave me a structure for all parts of the lesson… and of course, the Risk Management… Thank you for all your help…  “
Mick, ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 88%. Risk Management 13/15] 16.08.18

“…I passed my SC today with a Grade A… the most helpful part of the book was the Risk Management and the Day of your test… I wouldn’t have been able to get such a good result without the information from your book… Very, very helpful… Thank You! “
Peter, ADI, Grade A [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 14/15] 06.08.18

“…So pleased to pass my Standards Check today… it was a golden moment… thank you so much for the training – it made all the difference … I particularly liked the way you helped with my Q&A which I know had always been a weakness, but not anymore!… again, a big thanks for your course – very professional and very enjoyable… “
SueADI, Grade A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 14/15] 26.07.18

“…Had my first SC today and passed it with a Grade A 50/51… Very, very happy!…Your book was key to my success and was my only point of reference when preparing for my test… I read the book through several times and began making changes to the way I was teaching… I liked the interviews with other ADIs which made sense and I could relate to… and the Risk Management chapter was really helpful… Everything then just fell into place… Thank You! ”
Martin, ADI, Grade A [50/51 = 98%. Risk Management 15/15] 19.07.18

“…Very happy to have passed and achieved the Grade A with a score of 46… as I said to you I’d become a dinosaur after more than 30 years as an ADI… the key elements of training that helped me most were the Q and A which became much improved… Risk management guidance and the mock tests were very helpful… Many, many thanks… “
ChrisADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 12/15] 25.06.18

“…I passed and got my Grade A…Thank you so much for your patience and most importantly for believing in me… I’d begun to doubt myself and you restored my confidence… that meant so much to me on the day… I liked the way you structured the coaching and gave me a framework for lessons… I now enjoy my work much more than before… “
PareshADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 13/15] 14.06.18

“…I’m a cynical old school ‘dinosaur’ and not easily impressed… However I was very impressed with your training and books… I’d read all the DVSA stuff [or guff as I call it] about the SC and couldn’t make head nor tail of it… after your training it was crystal clear what I had to do… it’s as if I’ve got a new lease of life and I’m looking forward to putting all the techniques into practice… I must say as well that your track record of 217 Grade As [it’s probably more by now] including six 51/51s, seven 50/50s and your own 51/51 is mightily impressive… and one of the reasons I made the long journey to see you…very well worth it! Now looking forward to the next training day shortly before my SC… from an old dinosaur butterfly I’m now changing to a tiger… ”
David, ADI, after a day’s training

“…Very pleased to have passed my ADI Standards Check with a Grade A… There is no doubt in my mind that this result was largely due to the recent one-to-one training day I had with Brian… The training was comprehensive and tailor-made to my needs and it was also immensely enjoyable… Brian is very efficient and professional, but he made me feel very comfortable and showed me plenty of support, all topped with a good sprinkling of delightful humour… With the magic combination of training and Brian’s book(s), I promise you that you will look forward to your SC with a lot more confidence… ”
Hilary, ADI, Grade A [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 15/15] 23.05.18

“…Thank you Brian…I’m so relieved it’s all over… I got 48/51… the aspects of training that helped me most were the structure and knowing all the sections… your training was precisely engineered to cover key aspects in clear detail… I went up for my SC knowing exactly what I was doing… I’ve made the A Team! Thank you so much… ”
Nicky, ADI, Grade A [48/51 = 94%. Risk Management 12/15] 21.05.18

“…Cannot believe my result of 50/51… many, many thanks for your help and input in helping me understand more about the SC… without your training I wouldn’t have got anywhere near this result… the most helpful aspects were the Risk Management and how to use coaching techniques… “
Steve, ADI, Grade A [50/51 = 98%. Risk Management 14/15] 18.05.18

“…I have just taken my Standards Check again today and passed with a mark of 46/50… Thank you once again the book was everything I needed… I thought the book overall was very helpful and not too difficult to to get through… being A4 made progress easier…. The page I found most helpful was page 32 the R pathway to success. I remembered them in that order and discussed each part. Explaining the the first 6 Rs took at least a quarter of the time up and it also slowed me down so I then had more time which then scored me a full 12/12 on the first part and then 13 on the risk management continuing to what I thought was quite a good 21 for the final section… “
George, ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 13/15] 24.04.18

“…Before the training it sometimes felt like I was in a rocky boat on stormy waters… your training gave me confidence and stability… really pleased with the Grade A 47 result… Many thanks Brian. you’re a Diamond! “
Phil, ADI, Grade A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 14/15] 18.04.18

“…The difference was your attention to detail… I thought my other trainer was good, but you take things to a whole new level… you gave me techniques and methods for all situations that work extremely well… ultra-professional and enjoyable as well… “
Kelvin, ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 13/15] 28.03.18

“…The Risk Management section was what helped me most of all… no way would I have got the Grade A without the book so a big big Thank You!!”
Clare, ADI, Grade A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 13/15] 15.03.18

“…Because I qualified under the old Part 3 system I was worried about this first SC in the new system… your book really reassured me and gave me the confidence to approach the test with a good level of knowledge… very pleased!”
Glenn, ADI, Grade A [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 12/15] 07.03.18

“…Jut got myself a 51/51!!!..I pretty much feel a 10 at the moment… Thank you so much for going the extra mile and helping me with today’s SC… ” “.. Next Day – I woke up at 5am, totally buzzing and ready to do another SC!… it all still feels a bit surreal… “
Lyndsay, ADI, Grade A [51/51 = 100%. Risk Management 15/15] 21.02.18

Don, ADI, Grade A [49/51 = 96%. Risk Management 13/15] 08.01.18

Eric,  ADI, Grade A [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 13/15] 08.12.17

KumarADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 13/15] 23.11.17

“…Yippeee!! I passed… can I be part of the ‘A’ Team?! Thank you! I’m so pleased… the training was superb and I learned so much, especially how to start and finish the lesson…  the advice to provide more in-depth recaps was excellent… your guidance on the Risk Management and balance of responsibility was an eye-opener and something I hadn’t been doing before… I used the techniques on test… the examiner was pleased with my lesson… ”
HelenADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 12/15] 01.11.17

“…I Got the Grade “A” today… I liked the recap section which gave a structure to my lesson… and I used the saying ‘minimise risk and Maximise safety’… the chapter about the day of the test was really helpful as well… the book was certainly money well spent… “
Clinton, ADI, Grade A [43/51 = 84%. Risk Management 12/15] 31.10.17

“…Got an A 50/51… Thank you believing in me… What helped most was the Starter for 10 and how to structure the lesson… Your explanation of the grades really helped as well… The mock tests were ideal and really set me up for the day… I never expected to get such a high mark… The examiner said: ‘A very good session observed -well done’  “
LauraADI, Grade A [50/51 = 98%. Risk Management 14/15] 18.10.17

“…A Team! Thank you so much… Your coaching helped me get the Grade A… I’m very pleased we covered most scenarios during our time together Brian with the training… Very thorough on all the sections… it was money well spent… And, I would do it again… I’ve a bit to improve on still… “
MikeADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 12/15] 17.10.17

“…We got the Grade A… thanks for your help and encouragement… what helped most was knowing how much things have changed in the four years since I took my last check test… your knowledge of the Standards Check over four years really helped… Risk Management was a concern and you clarified how it should be done… The examiner commented: ‘Overall good lesson pitched at the correct level… Well done! “

MartinADI, Grade A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 13/15] 19.09.17

“…Both books absolutely invaluable… Just had my first standards check and came away with 44 out of the 51. Grade A! All down to the info I gleaned from your books… In ‘1771 Driving’ I found the skill sets were a great memory jogger, for some things I may have been overlooking – possibly through complacency… Also the Driversaurus section and the one on 52 sayings… I found the ‘ADI Standards: Essential Information’ book gave me a far greater understanding of what was expected these days… The sections that really stood out for me were ‘Your Starter for Ten’ as that enabled me to structure lessons properly and also the risk management section was a great help… Thank you very much for two excellent publications… “
Brian, ADI, Grade A [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 12/15] 05.09.17.

KulbirADI, Grade A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 14/15] 18.08.17

“…Thank you for the book, the training and for giving me the confidence to change and believe in me… since achieving the Grade A I’ve increased my pass rate by 10% and have increased my charges to £29 per hour… I have a three month waiting list so people are quite happy to pay that… most of the work is recommendation… I’m also enjoying my teaching more than ever – pupils choose what they want to do so they’re happy… I’m still using the techniques you taught me – Excellent!”
John,  ADI, achieved his Grade A two years ago and now taking further CPD

“…Add me to the A Team Folder… Many thanks for all your patience… it all came together today… the examiner commented that I delivered a very good lesson… Many thanks again… your training really helped by highlighting those areas that needed fine-tuning… “

“…I just wanted to thank you for writing the book… There is no doubt that without it I wouldn’t have passed… I read it at least 3 or 4 times… It was the risk management that helped most, plus the coaching element which I really enjoy and I can’t wait to get to that stage with my pupils… I had been on a one day course but I found that nowhere near as good as your information… in fact, having read your book I knew more than the people running that course and I learned nothing new… I will definitely be recommending your book… “

“…You said: ‘May the Fourth be with you’ and the force was certainly there for me… can you now put me in your A Team… the recap checklist really helped and got me off to a flying start… the five easy pieces advice really worked… as you know I struggled with my Part 3 and it took me three attempts to get through that… so to pass this test first time with a Grade A scoring 46 is incredible… your advice regarding the Q/A technique was brilliant and worked so well… the examiner was very complimentary… many, many thanks for all your help… I couldn’t have done it without you… “

“…I have passed the test! Grade A, with a total score of 46 points. I am proud to join your A team and will do my best to stay there… Thank you very much Brian for all your advice and support… your training helped me so much, giving me confidence in myself… I was able to make the teaching perfectly pupil-centred – finding the correct glove to fit the pupil’s hand… you also advised listening properly to the pupil and making the pupil think… the pupil was making more mistakes than usual… it was heavy artillery but I didn’t struggle and kept my head above water… without your training I would never have got this Grade A or scored 46… Thank you so much… “

“…Thanks for your help… after a nerve-racking few weeks I managed to scrape an A today… The main thing about the training was the clarification… and your advice that if there’s an incident just deal with it straight away… The mock tests really helped… and your guidance about setting the balance of responsibility at the start and then reviewing it… The examiner said it was obvious that I’d worked very hard… “
Teresa,  ADI, Grade A [43/51 = 84%. Risk Management 13/15] 22.02.17

“…I’m over the moon, Grade A overall score 45… I’ve been to seminars which have been lots of writing and not enough doing… your training was the other way round… your starter for 10 is genius and gets you off on the right foot… your training is precise and very, very professional… everything is covered and it all clicked into place… and there’s no way I could have achieved this without your help… “
Mark,  ADI, Grade A [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 13/15] 16.02.17

“…I received an A grade with 46 out of 51 marks… I think your book helped me consolidate the CCL and structure of the lesson to be done… I would say the starter for 10 was soooooo invaluable to help me think things through… Many many thanks for your great publication… “
Bryan,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 12/15] 13.02.17

“…It was brilliant the way you explained the headings in just a word or phrase… it was instantly clear and de-mystified the form in a way that no seminar or meeting had done before… really enjoyed the training day and looking forward to the next one… I feel rejuvenated and I’m closer to 71 than 17… I’m enjoying reading the new book 1771 Driving and it’s providing more depth and information for my lessons… the rules, tools and expectations is genius and reading the ‘What Grinds Your Gears’ was very amusing… I’m not a great reader but it just flows and linked to the Standards Check: Essential Information it’s a superb combination…!”
Robbie,  ADI

“…Today was the day… Since our  training day I had more confidence  in doing my SC… I was not going to let you down… I know that the training day is more than just a training day… I know that you give consideration and care to all your pupils… I have taken on board all that I learnt from you on that day and also for the days after… I know you a person who likes to cover all angles and details on whatever job you have in mind… this has come across in meeting you and also the invaluable books you have written over the years… They also helped me when I passed my ORDIT test…Please continue your work and I hope all your pupils get the same rewards as me… Best wishes Billy [grade A]!”
Billy,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 13/15] 25.01.17

“…I am very pleased to tell you I passed with a B… So relieved! Your book was an amazing help, thank you… I really don’t think I would have got that result without you guiding me step by step… Your book is worth its weight in gold! I will be recommending it to all my friends when their dreaded brown envelope drops through their door – they’re certainly not having my copy!… What is so great about your book is that you give anxious ADIs a strategy… It’s like having a friend guiding you through the Standards Check process, regardless of what subject you end up choosing… Great book – so glad to have had your help on my Standards Check journey! Best wishes, Candy… ”
Candy,  ADI

“…Thank you for writing your book… it really helped me today… I got a Grade A… the really useful things were how to start the dialogue between the instructor and pupil and the way you explained risk management… would have got a higher score if I’d done more asking than telling… Thanks again… ”
Sally,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 13/15] 24.01.17

“…45 Grade A…So happy… the Risk Management chapter really helped… plus your advice to use questions to involve the pupil… in the forefront of my mind was the ‘what ifs’ and how was the pupil going to deal with situations… “
Toby,  ADI, Grade A [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 14/15] 17.01.17

“…I got an A and scored 44… I was a nervous wreck… it was the mock tests that helped and your role play… making sure I was questioning rather than telling… and being more positive and encouraging… Thank You!”
Richard, ADI, Grade A [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 14/15] 11.01.17.

“….Thanks very much for your help in getting me the Grade A on my Standards Check… I could not have done it without your help… The structure really helped, plus the work we did on the positive feedback and allowing the pupil to drive independently… also giving more reasons to change… ”
Zaf, ADI, Grade A [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 12/15] 09.01.17.

2014 – 2016

“…Really enjoyed my training day with you… all extremely useful but I’d pick out the mock tests as the key thing that worked for me… having done the first one you advised which aspects to improve, and how to do it… result was the second test was a transformation… thank you for being so supportive – you really boosted my confidence… ”
Neil, ADI

“…All of the training was so helpful… the mock tests, the Q&A – everything… I couldn’t have done it without your help… the examiner said the difference [between this and my first one] was absolutely amazing… and commented that the ADI had taken training which vastly improved his understanding and awareness… well done!”
Ady,  ADI, Grade [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 11/15] 21.12.16

“…I found your book to be really helpful… particularly how to deliver the lesson… the structure… talking about risk… all of the examples really helped as well…
Alan,  ADI Grade [50/51 = 98%. Risk Management 15/15] 21.12.16

“…I’m seriously pleased… I was astounded at my result and didn’t think it was possible to go up by so many marks in such a short space of time… after failing my first Standards Check I was feeling down – it knocked my confidence… I feel so fortunate to have met you… you are obviously someone who knows his subject inside out… I really appreciated the thoroughly professional sessions from start to finish and keeping to time… the structured format was very professional and precise but flexible enough that I could ask questions and get extra advice at any time… the mock tests really helped and got me in exactly the right frame of mind to do it properly… I’ve been really impressed with your coaching… ”
Jonathan, ADI

“…I’d been to meetings about the standards check but didn’t find them very helpful as there was no specific information just general stuff… also people kept asking questions which weren’t really relevant… with your one-to-one course it was ideal… you took the time and patience to answer all my questions… we could pause the session at any time to discuss elements in more detail… very helpful… ”
Harpreet, ADI

“…I really liked the fact that you said, ‘I’m on your side’… I’ve now started using the phrase on my lessons… it gives confidence to the learners – as it did to me when you used it… “
Joginder, ADI

“…Thanks for a great training day… I feel so much more confident about my Standards Check… The warm welcome was much appreciated, as was the offer of a cup of tea, especially after my long journey… Seeing my name in lights was a really nice touch and you put me at ease straight away… All of the things I was worried about you reassured me and provided helpful and thoughtful replies… Before attending I had reservations about travelling some distance for the training but would have driven twice the distance! I drove home feeling positively recharged, almost as if I’d had my batteries replaced! Thank you!! ”
Linda,  ADI

“…I took my third SC today… I passed, so close to an A… What a difference your training made… I went from 28 to a 41 and I was a whisker away from the Grade A! Your training was superb and very professional… I liked the fact that we started and finished on time, and there was no side-tracking, it was very focused… I liked that you were open to any questions and gave me clear, constructive answers… the practical training really helped and brought the whole thing together… I particularly liked the ‘Starter for 10’ and your technique of the ‘Magnificent 7’ certainly rode to my rescue… So relieved to pass and the 41 was beyond my expectations… I am very happy – thank you for all your help… ”
Andrew,  ADI

“…I had my Standards Check today and got an A, scoring 46… Thank you so much for all your help… The book is very, very helpful… I followed all the advice in the book… The chapters that really helped were the Risk Management and the Dialogue… The examiner said it was a good overall lesson… ”
Kula,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 12/15] 09.11.16

“…Very Pleased! Got an A and scored 43… There were two examiners in the car, so no pressure! Thank you so much for all your help! I am so happy! I liked the structure you gave me and advice on how to make it client-centred… Very helpful… The advice you gave me about the topic I’d selected was also extremely useful and gave me more information to help my pupil… ”
Vicky,  ADI, Grade A [43/51 = 84%. Risk Management 12/15] 03.11.16

“…I’m pleased to say I achieved an A… The examiner said it was a very good lesson and one of the best he’s seen recently… Thank you for your help… the training made me very confident… I liked the mock tests and overall it was a really good coaching session with you… I also read your book cover to cover several times… ”
Wendy,  ADI, Grade A [48/51 = 94%. Risk Management 14/15] 03.11.16

“…Passed today with a Grade A… Mega-pleased… I couldn’t have done it without you… The training was superb and really focused me on the Risk Management and coaching… ”
Phil,  ADI, Grade A [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 13/15] 31.10.16

“…I took my Standards Check today and got a 46 Grade A… my gratitude to you, Brian … I do recommend you and your books…  ”
Levi,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 12/15] 28.09.16

“…Grade A – chuffed to bits… Thanks so much for the help… The advice about structure worked really well… also being thorough… I worked on putting more detail into the lessons… The examiner said: ‘A good lesson, well done, Grade A… ‘ ”
Matt,  ADI Grade [43/51 = 84%. Risk Management 10/15] 15.09.16

“…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!!!” The examiner said that it was perfect, and he wrote on the form: ‘…Very well done Louise, keep up this high standard… ‘ ”
Louise,  ADI Grade [51/51 = 100%. Risk Management 15/15] 01.09.16

“…What I found most helpful was your ‘Top 10 Ways to Be Successful’ and how to reduce the risk using the TRIMMEDDD list… Thank you for all your help… The examiner commented: ‘Overall a good lesson… ‘ ”
Dipa,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 13/15] 10.08.16

“…It was your ability to effectively convert my understanding of the old check test with the new standards test… This was achieved during in and out of the car explanations of new expectations… Your book provided great examples of how to phrase different things that were easily understood by pupils… The examiner commented: “Very good lesson, well done!”
Jeff,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 11/15] 10.08.16

“…I passed with a Grade ‘A’… The examiner commented: “ADI praised for constructing a good client-centred session ensuring the customer was focused… “… This is all due to your book… Thank you… ”
Rifat,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 14/15] 08.08.16

“I found your book to be really helpful… I got a 50A… The running order was most helpful as I was trying to do too much and so trimmed things down… The examiner commented it was: “A very good session, well done”
Sandy,  ADI Grade [50/51 = 98%. Risk Management 15/15] 03.08.16

“Really good training session, thanks… The aspect that helped me most was the 6 things to ask if things go wrong… I got the Grade A and it feels so good…”
Tim,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 14/15] 27.07.16

“The examiner said it was ‘Textbook’ and commented: “An excellent session observed, well done!”
Brian,  ADI Grade [51/51 = 100%. Risk Management 15/15] 20.07.16

“Just got home – passed with an A… Thank you! I wouldn’t have done it without your course… since the training I’ve noticed that my pupils develop much quicker and enjoy the lessons more – and so do I… ”
Andy,  ADI Grade [43/51 = 84%. Risk Management 13/15] 20.07.16

“Got an ‘A’… what helped me most from your training was getting the pupil to self-grade… plus using the post-it note… also how to adjust the lesson for an FLH… the mock tests were extremely helpful and preparation is the key… Thank you!”
Taz,  ADI Grade [43/51 = 84%. Risk Management 12/15] 19.07.16

“What I like about your training is that you’re a Grade A 51/51 yourself… this means that you’ve been there and done it… also the fact that you’ve helped so many other ADIs to get the Grade A… all ages and from all over the UK and with different abilities… very, very impressive… I’m already putting the techniques into practice and really enjoying it, so are my pupils!”
Tom,  ADI

“A very heart-felt thanks for keeping me on the register… it was touch and go and gave me the most worrying time of my career, knowing that it could all be taken away from me in a heart beat… I know I should have come to see you after my first fail but I told myself all would be fine next time, plus I was busy and didn’t want to take time off work etc, etc… I’d wake up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat having a nightmare about losing my job.. I’m still paying the mortgage and have the kids to provide for… And the pressure on the third attempt was like nothing I’ve never experienced before… So to anyone thinking they can wing it, don’t! Get training sooner rather than later… If you don’t have a green badge you won’t be able to work and it all goes horribly wrong… Absolutely recommend your training and thanks for supporting and believing in me – my confidence had been shot to pieces after the second fail…
Ed,  ADI

“My first Standards Check was a 26 and 5/15 risk management and I was very disappointed… after training I scored 41 and 11/15 – doubling that score… the aspects of training which helped most was the Q&A, I wasn’t involving the pupil enough… the risk management and risk factor explanation was a great help too… I’m sure that without your help I would have failed again… the examiner said: ‘What a difference!’ and was pleased with my performance… I just missed out on the A by two marks… my pupils are impressed with my new techniques and they like being involved… I’ve been instructing for a long time and over the years you get stuck in your ways… your training brought me up to date and I really appreciate all the help you gave me… ”
Ray,  ADI

“I was on my third attempt and you were able to help me stay on the register… it was a lot of pressure so many thanks for all your help and guidance… without your excellent coaching I’m sure it would have been a different result – doesn’t bear thinking about… what helped most of all was having a clear structure and your starter for 10… also the phrases and expressions to use, especially with a FLH… the stats you provided were helpful as well… using the learning outcomes and having a comfort stop also helped to structure the lesson well… thanks for everything and it’s such a relief to still be on the register and to be able to continue with my job… ”
Simon,  ADI

“Just a note to say a big thanks for the SC training day… your training is of exceptionally high quality and you deliver precision-engineered coaching in a way that is client-centred and designed to get the best out of instructors… my company treat me as a number and part of the furniture… by comparison, you treated me as part of the family, warmly welcomed me with a tea or coffee and my name in lights… absolutely top class… the ultimate in how it should be done… ”
Martin,  ADI

“Had the test and got an A, scoring 47… I wouldn’t have done it without your book… I read the book cover to cover and then concentrated on the Risk Management… I was miffed about the 14/15 just missed something which I ‘d normally pick up on… ”
Michelle,  ADI, Grade A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 14/15] 14.07.16.

“I started on a grade 4 which then moved up to a grade A with your support and guidance… your study materials including the books are very helpful and I found them to be very useful during my training… I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to improve their grade… the examiner commented: ‘Good overall lesson, well done!’ ”
Shamsher,  ADI, Grade [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 12/15] 11.07.16.

“Not only did you put my name in lights but also gave me insights into the SC and hints to pass… The examiner was very pleased and said it was very pupil focused… kept in focus the risk management and coached as well… so pleased! Couldn’t have done it without you – thank you believing in me and giving me the confidence to do this… ”
Jonathan,  ADI, Grade [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 13/15] 22.06.16.

“My first standards check today and I got an ‘A’ with 43 points… thank you for your book, it was awesome!!! What helped me most was the chapter about Risk Management… Also how to plan the lesson with the 10 point check list… I only teach part-time and had no clue about the new Standards Check… Your book was a great help… Many thanks… ”
Pankaj,  ADI Grade [43/51 = 84%. Risk Management 13/15] 19.05.16

“I achieved a Grade A 49/51 today… I always used to get a Grade 4 for 17 years… So I am very pleased… The best bits of the book were were the examples of how to start the lesson… I liked the way you introduced meeting and anticipation and I decided to coach that topic… Risk management was also clearly explained… This new system makes much more sense… I understand it far better than I ever did the old system… I knew exactly what do this time and I felt very confident… It was well planned and organised… I’d previously only ever been a grade 4 and never thought I’d be a Grade A… The examiner was very pleased with the lesson and said: ‘Very well done, thank you!’ ”
Hakim,  ADI, Grade [49/51 = 96%. Risk Management 15/15] 16.05.16

“What I liked about your training was that you covered everything, starting with a full and clear explanation of the form… through to what will happen when you meet the examiner in the waiting room – what they say to you and what you should say to them… the mock tests were also much appreciated… Very professional and very client-centred… excellent… ”
Simon,  ADI

“Everything helped… the 10-Point-Check was really helpful and made sure I got off to a flying start… also the clarification on who’s doing what was a crucial part of it… Knowing what risk management is, and how to discuss it with the pupil also worked very well… the examiner commented that it was a good session and said well done! ”
Karen,  ADI, Grade [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 13/15] 12.05.16

“Really pleased with the Grade A result… your help with the training was invaluable… the advice and guidance you gave me made all the difference… I can categorically state that I would not have achieved a Grade A without your help… Thank you so much… The examiner said that it went very well and I was in complete control… ”
Bruce,  ADI, Grade [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 12/15] 27.04.16

“Had my Standards Check today and I got a Grade A… Your book gave me immense help, it was invaluable… I would have been lost without it… The examiner said: ‘Thank you for a customer focused lesson which was clearly aimed at ensuring that the pupil attained their goals’… ”
Marcus,  ADI, Grade [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 13/15] 04.04.16

“The training has really helped me get a handle on what the examiner will be looking for when I take my Standards Check… the mock tests really bring everything to life – it’s one thing to read about it but there’s no substitute for practical training… no matter how much you read about it on the internet – where you get so many opinions it’s very confusing – or attend seminars, it’s being out on the road in the car and doing it that really matters!”
Sophie, ADI

“Had my Standards Check and achieved an A… I do not think I would have got there without your book… The Risk Management chapter was particularly helpful… the examiner commented that it was a good client-centred session, meeting aims and goals… Thanks and best wishes… ”
Sean,  ADI, Grade A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 13/15] 17.03.16.

“Grade A today… the training was immensely helpful and I think the mock tests were most useful as it puts you in the mindset of the examiner… also the way you helped me set out the learning outcomes… And how to keep it all in perspective… Really, really good…  Thanks very much!”
Nick,  ADI Grade [43/51 = 84%. Risk Management 13/15] 09.03.16

“Passed today with a Grade A, scored 45… The result was better than I thought it would be… Thank you so much for your help, it made a massive difference and the future looks optimistic… The training was very helpful, especially how to plan, using the check list and the confirmation that you can still use the core comps… the mock tests were very helpful, and I was able to see my progress going up and this gave me even more confidence… the mock tests also prepared me so well for the test and it was almost as if I’d been through it already… Thank you… ”
James,  ADI, Grade [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 13/15] 03.03.16

“Just did my test, got 47 Grade A… Thanks for the book, very helpful… I felt I had lost confidence in my ability… I read your book and felt that I did most of the things you outlined and I felt a lot better… I feel happier now and understand the new system… The examiner asked if I’d read up about the new system and I said I’d read your book, and he seemed happy that I had done my homework! ”
Steve,  ADI, Grade A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 13/15] 02.03.16. 

“Just to let you know I had a pupil pass today with no faults at all – for the first time – this was due to using your methods… Thank you, and see you again soon for the next day’s training… ”
James,  ADI 04.02.16

“Just wanted to say thank you… The big day was today and I got a Grade A, 46/51… Your book was the only training aid I used and the Risk Management section was most useful, although it was all helpful… Thank you so much… The examiner wrote on the form’ Very Good Lesson, Thank You’ ”
Sarah,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 13/15] 02.02.16

“Had my Standards Check today and scored 46… Just wanted to thank you for writing the ‘Standards Check: Essential Information’ book… I found it really informative and it helped me understand how the risk management and the client centred learning was to be conducted…  Thank you for helping me achieve a grade A… ”
Catherine,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 13/15] 26.01.16

“Had my first standards check today… Happy with the result – Grade A – With the help of your book about the standards check which I bought a few months ago… I achieved 43 points… What helped a lot from the book was the emphasis on the risk management… I also had the courage to change my lesson plan from the one we had agreed to at the start… I told the examiner what I was doing… He liked that and he mentioned it in the debrief… Thanks very much!”
Warren,  ADI Grade [43/51 = 84%. Risk Management 12/15] 20.01.16

“Passed with an A! Thank you for tor encouragement… What helped most was using the sheet with each part of the process from recap to recap meant that I was kept on track all the way through… Thank you for your encouragement ”
John,  ADI, Grade [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 13/15] 20.01.16

“Found the book of great assistance, thanks… a great way to find all of the information required in the one place… the examiner said it was to an overall high standard… ”
Douglas,  ADI, Grade A [46/51 = 90%. Risk Management 14/15] 13.01.16. 

“Very impressed with your book as I’ve just had a grade A… the examiner said it was a very good lesson… ”
Dylan,  ADI, Grade [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 13/15] 13.01.16

“The training was most useful and highlighted the areas I needed to work on… this meant that I wasn’t going into the test blind but was fully prepared… I enjoyed the training – it was 1-2-1, friendly and a good five hours… the examiner said to continue what I was doing… ”
Brian,  ADI, Grade [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 14/15] 07.01.16

“What impressed me about the training was that you have clients from all over the UK… the sheer number of Grade As is also encouraging… looking through the report forms in your Success Folder I found a report form that my examiner had conducted… This was also encouraging to know that he’d already awarded at least one Grade A!”
Louise,  ADI

I scored 51/51… I thought I’d passed but never thought it would be this good… the examiner said I’d tackled every aspect and covered every single one of the 17 items on the form… he said he hadn’t seen a 51/51 since April [now December]… he commented on the form that it was ‘A very good lesson overall’… ”
Shafiq,  ADI Grade A [51/51 = 100%. Risk Management 15/15] 02.12.15

“The training was superb and made me realise that although I’m putting in the graft – 40 plus hours per week – I need to improve the craft… I’ve already started to put it into practice and it’s a revelation… I’m enjoying my job again – if truth be told I’d got a little stale, just churning through the day with little thought on what I was doing… Now, though, it’s like a new lease of life… “
Neil,  ADI 

“My other trainer was good for the nuts and bolts but with your training it’s the attention to detail that makes the difference… you’re the gold standard compared to my previous trainer who was silver standard… he was utilising your books in training but you WROTE the books, and that makes a huge difference… “
Steve,  ADI

“I am pleased to say I passed my SC today… without your book I would have struggled… a huge thanks… the examiner said the lesson planning was very good  and scored me 11/12 on that… On risk I scored 13/15 and he commented this was very thorough… he also said it was a very good lesson for my pupil… ”
David,  ADI, Grade [44/51 = 86%. Risk Management 13/15] 27.10.15.

“I never thought in a million years I would get a Grade A… it’s like a great big pat on the back from the examiner… the job can be quite isolating and you’re never quite sure if you’re doing things correctly… your book helped a great deal, especially with the structure and knowing what to expect… I was a grade 4 before so was absolutely delighted to get the A…”
Lynn,  ADI, Grade [45/51 = 88%. Risk Management 12/15] 01.09.15.

“It was the risk management that helped most and also the way to structure the lesson… your 10-point plan to get the lesson off to a flying start was inspirational and it worked so well… ”
Darren,  ADI Grade A [49/51 = 96%. Risk Management 15/15] 29.07.15. The examiner wrote about Darren’s performance: “…Excellent lesson overall…”

“What made me decide to take the training with you was the consistency of your results – it was 25 Grade As when I trained with you and I’m sure it’s more now – and the range of ADIs you’d helped… all ages from 20s to 70s and from all over the UK… seeing all the forms in the A team is very, very, encouraging… I came away from the training day feeling a lot more confident and with a renewed appetite for the job!”
Claire,  ADI

“Amazing feeling!! 47/51 level A! Never had such a high grade in my life and all this made possible thanks to you and your coaching skills… risk and consequences… risk management: all under control… the examiner was really impressed… ”
Vito,  ADI, A [47/51 = 92%. Risk Management 14/15] 08.07.15. The examiner wrote about Vito’s performance: “…Excellent lesson…

“Wow!! Thank you!! What helped me most was going through the check list of things to do… what to say… and also other hints and tips, such as how to involve the pupil… ”
Peter,  ADI, A [50/51 = 98%. Risk Management 15/15] 08.07.15. The examiner wrote about Peter’s performance: “…Excellent session!…”
