'To anybody reading this, believe the hype, Jon really knows his stuff. Forget about the large national training providers (mentioning no names) save your time and money and go straight to Jon'

When on the ADI part 3 test (the same applies when on a 'normal' driving lesson) try not to tell the S.E./pupil that they have done well unless you actually KNOW they have done well

It's quite common for a trainee driving instructor to give a direction to go, then do ALL of the MSPSL themselves because it feels safer to them and NOT watch the S.E. to see if she/he is carrying out the MSPSL routine correctly, then saying something like 'well done' when it is not actually known whether they did well.

Remember if you don't WATCH the pupil/SE when on your ADI part 3 exam whilst at the same time making certain that everything is safe, you can't ID a fault, without fault ID you may as well forget the Core Competencies!
