Dan Evans is a 100% reliable trainer, who went above and beyond to ensure that I passed my ADI course. His knowledge and experience were invaluable in building up my own confidence and knowledge on how to instruct pupils. His training is challenging and rigorous and that prepares you well for the Part 3 test. Dan is also easy to get along with and you can share a joke even though the training is serious. He helped me through Part 2 and Part 3 first time. I highly recommend Dan as an ADI trainer.

It was a really good experience training with this company. My trainer was very professional with each session, having a structured method to reach the learning requirements. We developed over time a relationship where I can still ask for help, if I need it. I learnt from his various teaching methods that I still use today and how to adapt my teaching methods to each student. I would say that training with this company would be a worthwhile experience for any PDI looking to become a driving instructor.
