This information was provided by Greg Walsh, a CBT manager from the Driver Vehicle Standards Agency.


All covered to a very high standard, good use of Q & A and interaction with the trainees, all of the information delivered was clear & concise & pitched at the correct level for all the trainees.


Excellent element, Martin delivered the lessons to a “textbook” standard. I could offer no advice as to how the element could have been improved as there were no weaknesses in any area. The explanations and demonstrations given at the beginning of each module were clear and comprehensive, but without ever becoming overly long and complicated. Due to the high standard of the lesson delivery there were very few faults committed by the trainees, those faults that were committed were immediately identified and remedied. Also worthy of mention was Martin’s concern for the trainee’s welfare, insisting on the trainees taking regular breaks and drinks to ensure that they were not adversely affected by the very hot weather.


Again, this element was exemplary. The route started off in a nursery area, and the trainees were never pushed beyond their comfort zone. The level of difficulty throughout the road ride was carefully judged to be appropriate for the trainee’s ability level. All required traffic situations were covered, Martin’s radio work was clear, and there were lots of pre-emptive guidance when appropriate. His fault identification, fault analysis, and remedial advice were perfect in all cases.
