  • (1888PressRelease) September 13, 2010 - One approved driving instructor (A.D.I.) has been to 60 DIFFERENT driving test centres.This driving instructor is claiming to be the most test centre experienced driving instructor in the UK.This claim has been made over many years & has never been challenged. It is believed there are 45,371 driving instructors (A.D.I's) in the UK on (DSA) Driving standards Agency register.

    By way of information on Thursday the 9th September Kenny Whyte from Dundee of Fast Pass Drehvenskail the driving school, had a test for the first time in Ballater in Aberdeenshire. This was the 60th different driving test centre he has taken a student to for a driving test.

    Further information, Sean Batchelor from Dundee passed the theory test first time. On Wednesday the 8th of September in the morning after passing the theory test the only place in the whole of Scotland that had suitable appointments was at Ballater approximately 2 hours drive away by car. Practical test duly booked and passed the next day Thursday 9th September

    The average student nowadays takes 15 months of lessons, spends approximately 1500, sits the theory test twice & the practical test 3 times. Sean Batchelor passed both the theory & practical first time.These figures are set to increase as the new independent driving part of the updated practical test is introduced.

    The driving test pass rates are falling nationally in particular the theory test (used to have over an 80% success rate) has now fallen to more people failing than passing first time now. This is due to the majority of students getting no proper professional help & them erroneously believing they are saving money by learning the answers parrot fashion & by studying themselves.

    You wouldn't expect a driving school to teach you how to turn the car around in the road, then ask you to train yourself from a book on how to reverse around a corner.
    It is exactly the same when it comes to theory test training the idea that complete self study for the theory test is old fashioned & wrong.

    The new independent driving part of the updated practical test starting on the 4th of October 2010 confirms old fashioned training methods are not good enough & this new approach to the driving test is a great idea, as it will ensure drivers are taught to think for themselves.

    It is further forward thinking of the driving standards agency (DSA) to introduce new driving test routes & no longer make public the details of the actual test routes.

    The new test approach is superb as it is geared for more actual driving time on test with less time spent on the manoeuvres. This is more sensible when you think about it as when did you ever hear of someone being killed reversing around a corner ?
