Cardington Special Driving Test:
qualified driving instructors are allowed to take this exam.
It is conducted at the DVSA training establishment close to
the village of Cardington in Bedfordshire. A very high standard
of driving is expected.
A permanent staff instructor will conduct the test. You will drive for 90 minutes around a varied route but there will be a predominance of higher speed driving.
Only three (3) minor driving faults are allowed, but not the same faults repeated. In other words, there must not be any patterns of error.
ADIs who pass this examination are recognized by the DVSA as amongst the most professional drivers in the industry.
CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD):
Teaching learners to drive is very rewarding,
but experienced ADI's should consider more training and other
qualifications. The DVSA recommend continual updating of knowledge
and skill through "Continuing Professional Development" (CPD).
We deliver a number of training schemes to achieve this and
issue CPD certificates on completion.
There is a strong possibility that CPD will become mandatory within the next few years with a requirement to record at least 7 hours per year.
