ADI Parts 1, 2 and 3

ADI Part 1 Theory & Hazard Perception

I would without doubt recommend 4Wheelz to anyone considering ADI training. They provided all the material needed to pass the part 1 exam, but more importantly the one to one in-class training & the opportunity to take a mock exam under test conditions ensured I passed first time.

I just wanted to write this note to thank you for all of the work you did with me over the past few months, and to let you know that I successfully passed my part 3. I have learned more in my 5 hours training with you H and Mark than I did with completing my whole course with ***. 4 Wheelz staff are very friendly and they make you feel welcome, they are always there if you need any help or advice. Thank you H and Mark again for helping me and building my confidence. I appreciate the time you took.

ADI Part 2 Test Of Driving Ability

After shopping around for a reputable training establishment I was recommended by a friend to try 4Wheelz. I wasn’t disappointed, from the moment I walked into their offices you could tell this was a professional business with excellent in-house training facilities. Thanks to Barry Vaughan for providing excellent training in order to pass my part 2.

I am so glad I chose 4Wheelz for my ADI part 2 training. My trainer put me at ease right from the start. Having passed my driving test 17 years ago, there were certain aspects that needed tidying up! H was patient, friendly & always really informative. Despite my hesitancy, H recommended I put in for my test – I passed first Time.

ADI Part 3 Test Of Instructional Ability

After researching many driving schools one name kept popping up (4 Wheelz). Finally I asked an examiner at my local test centre who also recommended 4 Wheelz, at this point my mind was made up as an examiner is not biased and it is a lot of money to part with. Yes I made the right choice! Firstly their instructors are first rate with a wealth of knowledge on tap. Don’t expect an easy ride though you do have to put some effort in to succeed. H Surti (Senior Training Officer) is a true professional and helped me attain grades 5 and 6 which is almost top marks. My advice to PDIs would be to work hard, listen to your instructor and take on board all the comments positive + negative but most of all be yourself even on the tests, it really helps. Examiners want to see genuine hard working PDIs not pre-programmed robots. Thanks once again to H and Richard, could not have done it without you guys. Thanks.
