I qualified as an ADI in June 2008 passing first time, and in February 2011 I passed my Fleet Instructors test, first time, and joined the Fleet register which enables me to offer coaching and assessments to fully qualified drivers in a corporate environment.
I am Pass Plus registered and a member of the Driving Instructors Association.
In July 2011 I attended a driving / coaching conference at the University of East London which has updated me in recent and upcoming changes in driving education.
Following on quickly from this I decided to study for my BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Coaching for Driver Development with the Tri-Coaching Partnership. I completed and passed this new award in driving education in September 2012
On my last assessment I was awarded a Grade 6 on all elements which is the highest grade an instructor can be given, (only 7% of instructors are Grade 6)
Covering the following areas:
I run my own successful independent driving company

Sorry for late reply. Manic at the moment.
Thank you for helping me to understand what the new Standards Check is all about. I enjoyed being part of the small group. Already changing my ways and preparing for my check in a couple of weeks.
PART 3 Passed
Kevin has helped me all the way through my driving instructor training and I can’t recommend him highly enough.
Kevin is calm, professional and fun and has a particular ability to draw out the skills in you that you don’t know that you have.
If you are serious about becoming a driving instructor Kevin’s listening, analytical and solution finding skills are what you need.
Great day one,
very Informative now looking forward to day 2
Hope your well?
I'm just sitting here having a bit of self reflection and just thought I'd let you know that since I started the BTEC 3 just over a year ago I've had 27 tests with only 7 fails all of which passed 2nd time and an average of 3 mdfs
Also gone from grade 4 to an A
Not bad eh !!
I'm still learning but definatly think my pupils are benefiting from my new found Ccl skills
Just thought I'd let you know
I signed up with TRI-COACHING to do their level 3 coaching course because I wanted to see if I really was coaching.
My tutor for the course was Kevin Field who I have to say was fantastic.
He coached me through the coaching process which made me realise that I hadn't really been coaching at all.
With his patient way of working/coaching he has helped me to start to my coaching journey.
I can tell you I won't be looking back as coaching is the way forward.

Brilliant course well structured, superb coach/tutor, thanks Kev for some very thought provoking skills, now the practice and the assignments.
Thanks Kev Field!
I've had a great couple of days! Anyone thinking of doing the aCCeLerate course just do it!
You won't regret it! You'll wonder why you didn't do it earlier!
