‘Tri-Coaching Partnership would like to welcome you to our workshop that will be educational, enlightening and, most of all, enjoyable. We will be reconstructing a crash in the workshop, which will prove interesting.
After picking up the casualties - none too seriously-injured - we will be showing how effective training techniques could be used to help reduce the likelihood of similar incidents ever happening. We will be inviting you to help us analyse the findings from the crash and incorporate these findings into delivering a great lesson that will not only match the Standards Check but help you to see how the Goals for Driver Education have informed the DVSA National Standards.
If you are looking for a fun, interactive workshop that will help you develop your training delivery, please come along. We look forward to meeting you all either in the workshop or at the trade stand where we are happy to discuss anything regarding your own ongoing training and development.
We will be giving away a free e-book to everyone, who attends.’

BTEC 4 Course Infomation
BTEC 4 Stoke-on-Trent Book HereBook online using the link above or call 0800 058 8009Have a look at what ADIs around the country have said about their experiences on the BTEC 4 course....
I done a standard check test course about two years ago now and was well impressed with what I learnt from Graham and Susan. I went on to do the Btec4 in driver development, still impressed, so I didn't stop there, went on to do train the trainer course. I only have good things to say, as I learnt so much from each course that I did I definitely got value for money. It helped me put my prices up.
I have studied with Tri-coaching and now work with/for them. The training I have received and the continuous support and training I get from them have transformed the way I work, made me so much better at my job, and allowed me to deliver client centered learning to anyone I train. On my Standards Check I got 49 out of 51, all thanks to Tri-Coaching.
I can't recommend the Tri-Coaching partnership highly enough. My life has literally transformed into what I always wanted it to be but had no idea how to achieve it. I had already been an ADI for 17 years when I did my first training with them at which point the clouds parted and I never looked back. Susan and Graham really are the best of the best. Invest in yourself and do 1 of their courses.
The best course I ever been to. Thanks guys. Keep up the good work.
I found Tri-Coaching partnership through Hermes report and looking for coaching training. Talked to ask researched former Adi's who completed the Btec course who recommended it to me. Found the course challenging and insightful I am still learning and adapting my lessons on a daily basis even though I completed the course over a year ago.
I did BTEC3 with Tri Coaching Partnership and gained invaluable knowledge and advice whilst working with great coach who encouraged, pushed us to think out of the box and who made us feel confident in using different methods with great results. Now looking forward to studying for BTEC4 with them.
I can't say enough great things about Tri Coaching Partnership. The training I have taken with them has transformed my business. You have two of the most respected and knowledgeable trainers in the industry at the helm to help and support you. The courses on offer are second to none and perhaps more importantly you can trust them to deliver quality training every time.
A great training provider. So good I became one of their trainers. The level of support and encouragement for me to be able to achieve my goals was simply the best.
Excellent training services, not cheap, but defo the best around by miles!!, Don't waste your time and money on inferior products, you only get what you pay for in life and this training establishment definitely is the best.
Quality training. The Tri-Coaching's BTEC 4 really is the gold standard for client centred learning in the driving instructor training sector. Completing it has taken my business to new levels, with much greater job satisfaction.
Quite simply, unique in the driver training industry. Highly recommended.
0.5% of those ADIs, who achieve 31 or more in the Standards Check, achieve 51 out of 51.
1.13% of those same ADIs, who achieve 31 or more, achieve 50 or 51.
3.2% of those same ADIs achieve 49, 50 or 51.
If the failure figures were included as well then these percentages would be far lower.
The figures have been taken from a Freedom of Information request, which produced a breakdown of scores obtained by ADIs in their Standards Check on a month by month basis between 7th April 2014 and 31st December 2014. The mean average of each score was calculated. This showed, for example, that an average of 4 ADIs each month scored 51; 5 ADIs scored 50; and 16 ADIs scored 49. An average of 36 ADIs each month scored 43 (Grade A) and 30 ADIs each month scored 42 (Grade B).
37 out of 51 was the most common score with an average of 62 ADIs gaining this each month.
Overall, an average of 28% of those ADIs, who passed the Standards Check, gained a Grade A.
We are happy to announce that Susan McCormack co-managing director of Tri-Coaching Partnership had her standards check today and achieved the magic score of 51/51. Her description of the lesson she gave is below:
I took my 23 year-old son, who hasn't driven for two years but prior to that owned a car and did a lot of driving in and out of London.
I carried out a brief assessment before my Standards Check and identified that he approached situations too quickly and did not give himself enough time to assess the hazard and decide on the best course of action. I privately wondered if commentary would help him with his forward planning. I didn't really discuss this assessment with him until the Examiner was sitting in the back of the car.
We set the goal and agreed to focus on planning the approach to roundabouts. I asked him how he would like to do this and we agreed on me asking questions on the approach around what he could see, why it was a hazard and how he was going to deal with it. I divided up the responsibility for risk and told him I would give him directions.
At one roundabout he pulled out in front of a car unsafely. I questioned him on it but then had to take action because he was clearly distracted. It was unsafe to leave the roundabout so I told him to go round again and put his right signal back on. Then I reassured him and said we would discuss this in a moment.
When we pulled up we discussed the risks involved and I highlighted that this was the goal we were working on anyway. I helped him then approach at a better speed using 'brakes to slow, gears to go'. Then I left him to it. We pulled up again and I suggested that he talk himself through roundabouts and was thrilled when he did so because the change in his driving was dramatic.
At the end, I asked him questions so that he could reflect on the goal and how well he thought he had done. He agreed that talking himself through had really helped him time his approach and start looking earlier.
DVSA Registra Mark Magee said 'Last September, I told you about the proposed changes we’re making to the ADI part 3 test. I explained why we wanted to make these changes and the main differences in the test.
In summary, it will more closely reflect the ADI standards check to give a better assessment of the trainee instructor’s ability.
We've been busy since September, and in this short blog post, I want to tell you about what's happened and what you can do to prepare.
When we plan to make the changeWe're still on track to introduce the changes in autumn 2017 as we'd previously set out.
We're aiming to introduce the changes for the start of October, following further discussion with the industry.
Ahead of that, we’ll publish the new assessment form and accompanying guidance.
Providing quality trainingMany official register of driving instructor training (ORDIT) organisations have told us they’ve already started to change their processes for the new test. You can read more about this in a research report we recently published about the impact of replacing the ADI part 3 test.
It'll be up to trainers to decide what the change means for trainee instructors based on their progress to date.
I’d also like to encourage trainers to keep a record of their trainees’ progress and subjects covered. This will help develop the range of skills and knowledge required to provide effective training.
This record will also be essential for giving evidence of progress and subjects covered when applying for a trainee licence.
Keep up to dateWe’ll keep you updated on this blog and confirm the date as things progress.'

If you are already a trainer; or you would like to start training people to be driving instructors you might be interested in one of our Train the Trainer courses. These courses are proving to be very popular and sell out fast.
The Tri-Coaching Train the Trainer course lasts two days and gives you an instructor training package that you can use for your own instructor training.
Tri-Coaching Partnership has a complete online driving instructor training package with 12 in-car sessions and a Course Book, which you can sell to your trainee driving instructors and then use in conjunction with your own training programme.
When you attend the two-day Train the Trainer course you will take away a set of reference materials and we will organise for you the Tri-Coaching Instructor Training (TCIT) Package, which:

At Tri-Coaching we believe the proposed changes to the Part 3 test are positive and eagerly wait for them to be put into place. The changes are all about an 'assessment' that assesses whether the PDI is able to ensure learning takes place and is able to give value for money.
PTLLS - now, Level 3 in Training and Education - and all teaching qualifications on this level - have focused on a 'micro teach' as a means of summative assessment of the candidate's ability to ensure learning takes place. The candidate picks one topic and prepares this - structuring, planning and practising it before delivering it to a group of peers and an assessor. The new-style Part 3 will be no different and an excellent assessment of learning taking place, value for money being given and the ability to keep the car safe.
The Standards Check form consists of three higher level competences - Lesson Planning, Risk Management and Teaching and Learning Strategies - and 17 lower level competences, against which the candidate will be assessed. This is a far more comprehensive and thorough assessment of competence than the old-style Check Test or Part 3. The pass rate on the Part 3 is consistently less than 30% - often closer to 20% - and only 9% of those people, who sign up to become ADIs, actually complete. IMO this is because most people struggle to learn off by heart 10 PSTs and how to deliver them. This is not natural and is counter-productive. It does not give trainee driving instructors a well-rounded education that will help them teach safe driving for life. It prepares them for a test and then encourages them to prepare their learners for a test.
As is currently the case with the Standards Check certain topics will be discouraged. For example, if you cannot demonstrate your ability to manage the risk, because the car never moves, you will fail. Cockpit drill and controls, new manoeuvres etc. will not be suitable to demonstrate that the candidate can give value for money, ensure learning takes place - and keep the car safe. Some people have suggested that teaching a motorway driving lesson in an automatic to a FLH will be a 'cop-out'. I struggle to understand how this can be the case. How many gear changes do I need to make when driving on the motorway? Lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies will still have to be demonstrated. I really don't know that I could deliver a great lesson to a FLH on motorways in one hour. My goal setting questions and client-centred learning skills would have to be second to none. So good luck to anyone, who can pull this off. They would make a very good driving instructor.
ORDIT will need to change of course. The assessment will need to be based on the National Driver and Rider Training Standard - Unit 6.6, which is all about the role play. Role play is a training technique, critical to training someone to become a driving instructor and being able to deliver realistic, well-structured, risk-managed and effective role play is very important. This is my only hope - that all trainers will recognise that ORDIT is a worthwhile standard to attain. With this Standard in place, the training can at long last stop being about passing a test and, instead, all about becoming a driving instructor, delivering great lessons and giving value for money.
Since #DontStreamAndDrive Day 2016 the use of phones for streaming whilst driving has continued to increase across the world. Sadly there have been a number of fatalities. Many drivers are oblivious to the dangers and risks this presents. More worrying are those drivers who recognise the dangers but livestream anyway in the belief they are a good driver.
Driving is a complex operation and needs your full concentration all the time. Drivers need their hands on the wheel and their “eyes and mind” on the road too. The loss of one of these vital components, even for a fraction of time, can be the difference between life and death.
#DontStreamAndDrive Day 2016 reached more than 20 million people worldwide. #DontStreamAndDrive Day 2017 plans to build on that success and spread the message further and wider.
Road safety is the responsibility of every road user. Together we can make a difference and reduce the number of unnecessary and totally avoidable deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
Please support #DontStreamAndDrive Day.
The next TISPOL Bulletin will be issued on Tuesday 14 March.
