THE SUFFOLK SPECIAL TEST is an advanced driving test for ADIs. If you think about it, once we qualify as ADIs our own driving is never again tested.
So why not have your own driving assessed as part of your CPD – Continuing Professional Development? It will keep your own driving standards sharp and up-to-date, showing astute awareness and forward planning.
In terms of marketing your business, this reassures your clients that you’re at the top of your game, and one step ahead of the competition. It will also look good on your CV regarding career development.
