PDI driving instructor TRAINING PART 2

Part two of the PDI training focusses on how you would approach all aspects of the practical driving test from start to finish.  In order to be successful you will be required to show that your driving ability and judgement, car control and awareness, road-craft, manoeuvre execution, and an exemplary understanding of the highway code, is translated into a competent, safe and effective driver.  Ultimately the practical Part 2 test is all about showing that you understand how a student should be coached to have a life of safe driving.  The way you demonstrate this is ultimately how you drive in your Part 2, it shows the examiner how you expect your students to drive and approach all aspects of driving.  How you drive, will be a true reflection of how you plan to coach your students, and how they will approach their driving career, as you are providing them with the building blocks from the very start.
