The 1 day Standards Check course in the classroom was beneficial as we covered issues in all 17 competencies. In my experience you learn more from taking the actual SC itself, but the time in the classroom is good preparation. Keep It Simple and do it very well. Just received a grade A on my SC yesterday.

Complete a course yesterday to prepare me for the new standards check. Pleased to say I left feeling much more prepared and relaxed about the check test than I did before.

Dave explains everything in a simple to understand format in a relaxed atmosphere

A BIG!!!! Thank you to Dave Foster for the Part 3 rescue on Monday.
I remember doing this course back in the day when I was qualifying and it was in no small part on my resulting pass!
The theories given simplify everything into segments that make that big step much less daunting as you come away knowing you can pass.
My PDI Moh came along not quite knowing what to expect, but after his words were “thank you so much for taking me there I know I can do it now!”
The course is interesting, full of anecdotes, stories and other people in the same boat, its also very pleasant as an ADI to meet other instructors who have the same worries and similar stories to share as this is an awfully lonely choice of careers!
So thanks again and I look forward to bringing many more PDIs to you as the Beeline ‘buzz’ continues to get louder, thanks in no small part to 1st 4 Driving!
PS I got a grade A yesterday (13th January 2016) in my standards check, coincidence?

Attended a course on 11/1/16 part 3 rescue course with 2 of my PDI s , both my PDI s came away from the course feeling confident and happy. Dave foster ran the course which was professional interesting and fun , we enjoyed a lovely lunch and was made to feel very welcome. We had a 4 hour journey from Southampton to Callington nr Plymouth but it was well worth the journey and we felt it was good value for money. I am sure when my PDIs pass there part three exam it would be a direct result from attending this course so any PDIs out there make sure you get on this part 3 rescue course run by Dave Foster 1st4driving. Many thanks Dave for all your help

When I took the plunge to leave drive dynamics and go independent back in October I had some doubts as to whether I was doing the right thing.
What if I don’t get enough pupils? What if I can’t compete with the big guys? What if I struggle on my own? It was all “what if’s” and i had big doubts. Well here I am 5 months later with a full diary and now having to turn pupils away.
I can’t thank Dave Foster and his team enough for giving me the confidence, support and direction I needed to leave an expensive hassle filled franchise and go it alone. Dave has been there since before I even qualified in 2009 when i was still doing my training. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be doing this job now. He believed in me even when I was beginning to doubt my own ability.
I can’t thank him enough.
I am doing that well now that i desperately need another instructor to come work for me. Will even give free training to someone who wants to become an instructor. I’m turning too much work away, I’ve never been so popular!!

We use 1st 4 driving, Love them to bits, unlike other call handling services they are in the industry, they offer a personal service and don’t sound like robots like others i have in the past. Dave Foster even talks to driving instructors wanting to join the team, he managed to persuade 8 driving instructors to join our company in the 6 months we have been with them ( may have another who he spoke with yesterday) my business has more than doubled since taking up their service (23 currently) and I owe this to them, our driving instructors are in contact with Dave foster who advises them on topics such as Standards test, Ordit or just general questions to do with being an ADI, his daughter Ashleigh has just joined the team and is brilliant, Highly recommended them

Having known Dave for some yrs through my previous franchise in a driving school I always knew that I would b in safe hands when I decided to go out on my own , I’ve now been running my driving school SDrive4Success since August and I couldn’t be happier, I always considered myself fairly busy but in the short time I’ve been an associate of 1st 4 driving I’ve now got enough pupils to have a diary booked up full for a month ahead of myself, the guys in the office are all really friendly and are always on hand to help and the website that I have now is better than I could have ever thought, my only regret is that it took me so long to pluck up the courage to go out on my own in the first place, best thing I ever did thanks to everyone over at 1st 4 driving
Cheers Steve 🙂

What a difference a year makes…. with help from Dave Foster & the team!!

After taking the plunge & leaving a franchise that I was very disheartened with I am now the proud owner of LA-Driving School.
Dave Foster & the team have done an amazing job with building & promoting LA-Driving School’s website, which more than meets my expectations. The online diary & booking service are a great tool, its reassuring that there is always someone who is available to answer phone calls & online bookings from potential new students at my virtual office & leaves me free to do what I love doing of being an instructor & not worry about chasing up missed calls & inquiries…
In the past 6 months I have passed my ORDIT with help & support from Dave Foster. I know have 1 ADI working with me, delivering driving lessons in Weston-Super-Mare. Plus a PDI on his trainees licence delivering lessons in Taunton & Bridgwater & a new PDI just starting his part 1 training, if all works out well will be delivering lessons around the Shirehampton area of Bristol.

My little empire is expanding & giving me such a buzz. I know none of this would of happened if it wasn’t for the expert support & guidance I’ve received & continue to receive from Dave Foster & all the team at 1st4driving.

I want to say a few words of thanks to Dave Foster and his team for the great support they have been for me since I know them. I started my driving instructor job in Plymouth less than two months ago, with typical fears and insecurities that everybody can have when start running a business. From the beginning I have had all the help from Dave Foster, a great professional and excellent person who has been done everything to be easier than I expected. Advising me all the time and helping me build a successful 1st 4 driving Plymouth has grown by leaps and bounds and today has a considerable number of pupils. Thank you very much Dave. Thanks for your support, thank you for your perseverance, thanks for your experience.

I would like to say at this point that since using the new booking / diary service our bookings are up around 40 % and most of our instructors are either on hold or virtually fully booked.
