SO YOU THINK THAT YOU WANT TO BECOME A DRIVING INSTRUCTOR?

Findley's Driving School (UK) offers this article about things that you should know and consider carefully before setting out to become a qualified driving instructor. Findley's is based in the UK but this article is very pertinent to those thinking of instructing "down here".

DOWNLOADS:

For driving instructors - I've developed various training aids over the years. Some of them are posted on this site, you can download them for your own use. All files are in *.PDF format, requiring Adobe Reader® to view.

OBSERVATIONS and your driving test!

Good observation techniques - mirror checks, scanning and blind spot checks - are an mandatory part of "defensive driving" (driving to avoid crashing).
Your driving test examiner will be watching you closely to see that you perform correct observations throughout the test.
You can download a *.pdf file on OBSERVATION from this site to help you become a defensive driver (and to help you pass your test too!)

BUYING A USED CAR?

It might me be "encumbered" i.e. the seller still owes money on it - and if so it could be re-possessed by the bank or institution and you won't get your money back!
To find out if it's encumbered, visit the Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) site.     .
