We all have a habit of putting things off, for what we perceive are good reasons. Opportunities to grow yourself, and your business, should not be put off to some future date. If you have an inkling of wanting to develop yourself, enhance your skills and grow your business in the process, then it's simple, what are you waiting for?
Being an approved driving instructor has never been so busy and in some respect, it looks like that won't change for some time, however this presents challenges for ourselves.
1. The DVSA will target under-performing ADIs.
Wouldn't it be nice if you became the ‘go to expert’ in your area for ADI training. ADI’s need to be able to teach people to drive safely and lose the test focused approach. That becomes essential if you are going to continue enjoying your work
.2. Having a fear of under-performing clients taking tests.
This reflection on you has been driving fear and anger amongst some ADI’s. The way you were trained may still have some bearing on your own training approaches. The repeated lesson planning of a topic eg. crossroads; a briefing about crossroads and then a full talk through when your client attempts crossroads for the first time, is outdated methodology of what is effectively a one size fits all approach. If you want to train people to become driving instructors than you need to have a syllabus and a structure to deliver your training.
We have just that and in the process, you will gain a great opportunity to learn mores skills and techniques, making you an even better ADI whilst helping you become a trainer.If you want to know more about our train the trainer course, then follow this link .........https://cx255.infusionsoft.app/app/storeFront/showCategoryPage?categoryId=148
Has the DVSA created a fear of failure because of:
Our BTEC level 4 professional award in coaching for driver development has changed lives. It has re-invigorated many ADIs and more fundamentally it gives you those subtle skills to teach 'safe driving for life' and takes you away from a test focused approach to your training.
The DVSA has recognised this course.
The DVSA has said, they will be targeting you with a Standards Check if your pass rates fall; if there is an increase in the examiner taking physical action during your tests; or if your average number of driving faults and serious faults increases.
You can use this link to find out more about the scenarios that could trigger your Standards Check.
Whilst this might not be a real possibility for you, why take the risk of being targeted with an early Standards Check when you can take some positive steps to avoid that happening in the first place. Attending one of our Standards Check workshops before you have heard from the DVSA, is a great way to avoid triggering an early Standards Check.
Here are two reassurances:
If you take our Standards Check workshop and you do not find if of benefit, we will give you your money back.
And, in the unlikely event you fail your Standards Check after attending our Standards Check workshop, we will give you your money back plus a free consultation with us at Tri-Coaching Partnership to get you back on track.**

** Terms and Conditions - offer only available for Standards Check workshops purchased during the month of March 2022. If you fail your Standards Check after attending one of our Standards Check workshops, we will refund you the cost of the course and offer you a free consultation, providing you send us a copy of your failure sheet, and proof that you used Route 51 and completed the reflective logs.
We have all had those clients that are like pulling teeth, who choose to ignore all the advice you can give them. Here are some tips that might help you overcome the most difficult client:
Learning to listen, probably the most underestimated skill, is essential for your communication. Encourage the client to help them understand that they have the ability to change, even those who continually say, 'I cant’! As you adopt these changes in your training style, you will find you no longer have disagreements with your clients, you will enable the client to make their own choices therefore creating an equal relationship; you will also stop feeling the need to coerce your client into taking action.
If you want to improve and develop your skills in the art of coaching and client-centred learning then we have courses that have developed thousands of ADIs. Our next BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Coaching for Driver Development starts on March 28th.

This industry has never been so busy - and we would know, each member of the team at Tri-Coaching having been an ADI for at least 20 years - and some of us, over 35 years.
The problem with being busy is that there are times when you need some support or would like a bit of diversity by taking on another driving instructor or two to help share the load. But you will quickly realise that it is a challenge to find someone, who teaches like you do and shares the same values as you. And, because you are busy you haven't got time to write a great training course for potential driving instructors.
Well, Tri-Coaching has solved that problem for you.
Our Train the Trainer course comes with guidance notes on how to deliver 12 development modules that cover the 40 hours necessary to put your PDI onto a trainee licence (pink badge) as soon as they pass Part 2; and a 13th module (pink badge PDI) that supports you as you take your PDI through the training requirements when they are on a pink badge.
Plus, your clients receive a course that is getting exceptional results and focuses on becoming a driving instructor - rather than just passing the exams.
It helps you teach them, not only what to teach but, more importantly, how to teach.

Train the Trainer TCIT user passed his Part 3 this month! 5*
This was my first Zoom video course with Tri-Coaching, but I have been using them for the past year as I am following their Tcit driving training course. Excellent.

Train the Trainer TCIT 5*
Did the Train the Trainer course this month with Graham and I have to say it was brilliant! I did the old style part 3 and was hoping this would clear up question I had about training PDI’s and this course nailed it! The TCIT package itself makes so much sense and I can’t wait to deliver it! Just started on the follow up sessions this week and they are a massive help to really get to grips with everything. All in all, a fantastic course that looses absolutely NOTHING from being delivered via zoom and the help and support that’s offered really is second to none. Thanks to all the team at TCP for all the hard work that clearly goes into all of your courses!

I have just attended the 2day Train the Trainer course on zoom, fantastic course. It is so reassuring to see the very high standards set to become an ADI Trainer but also the quality of the course the PDI receives throughout their training. The support you receive after the course is second to none, the resources you receive are really useful all the way with journey to become an ADI Trainer. This course will be very useful to present ADI Trainers. Really looking forward to our follow up training sessions which you can attend as often as you like. Thanks Susan!!

What can we do to help our clients learn? Eight points to consider:
And here are four key principles that 'fit' all our clients:
1. Everyone needs to work things out for themselves.
2. The experiences that our clients have, are remembered longer and in more detail, when we make them unusual or emotionally strong - and not just routine experiences.
3. Our clients need to feel emotionally secure and psychologically safe.
4. Our clients become more motivated when they are engaged and have some control over their own learning.
At Tri-Coaching, 'our client' is 'You' and we know that these four key principles are all about you. Our BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Coaching for Driver Development gives you everything you need to work it out for yourself, feel psychogically safe, and be motivated about your learning.

How People Learn to Drive and how we can Teach them Effectively.So what does learning entail?Generally, we are looking to help our clients master basic skills; be able to deal with distractions and work at different levels across varied topics, from moving off and stopping to complex multi lane roundabouts. Our clients come to us at various stages of learning e.g. novice, partly trained, trained and full licence holder. We take the topics of learning to drive and apply them in a variety of weather and traffic conditions. We use mainly our verbal skills to help the clients learn, problem solve and make decisions - often under pressure from other road users.
We need to consider the most important factor - when it comes to learning, it is not what is learnt, but how it is learnt that matters.
Traditionally, we told people what to do and all that was required of them was to copy what we told them to do. This focuses on what the person needs to learn but doesn't consider how they need to learn it. For learning to be effective, the driving instructor has to adapt the information so that it is put across in a way that suits the individual.
This is precisely how times have changed - we meet the learner’s individual needs from a client-centred learning approach and, part of our role as driving instructors, is to understand how to help our clients learn.
There is a saying ‘a journey over 1000 miles starts with a single step', the problem, it should be in the right direction.
Now, we know that all learners are individual, however, there are similarities between learners, simply because there are similarities in how our brains work. Did you know, that we all have the same number of brain cells as Albert Einstein? Who’d have thought it!.
There is a saying: ‘use it or lose it’.
Our job, as driving instructors, is to encourage our learners to make new connections in the brain so that they learn how to apply the art of problem-sovling to a multitude of situations. We can do this by developing tasks that stimulate the learner to think and reflect, whilst at the same time, consolidating existing knowledge, so that learning is transferred from one task to another.
This is why the switch to coaching and client-centred learning has become so very important, and the traditional methods of straight forward instruction only have a place in keeping the car safe.
If you want to explore coaching for driver development we can offer you an introductory course. This course will help you develop and hone your coaching skills, increasing your capacity to give great learning opportunities for your clients. To find out more follow the links:
