There’s a lot of change afoot (or should that be awheel?). From April, the theory test will use video clips instead of written case studies. These aim to make the test more accessible, particularly for people with learning disabilities, reading difficulties and developmental conditions. DVSA has also published new versions of the driver’s record. It is hoping the changes will help encourage learners to broaden their experience before taking their test, particularly in regards to driving in the dark.
Welcome to Driver Trainer. We’ve renamed and redesigned the magazine to reflect the wider remit of the modern driver trainer.
This month we have a new column from road safety charity Brake. We also have Phoenix Motorcycle Training laying out the pros and cons of becoming a franchisee. Adrian Coucher discusses his career as a fleet trainer, Karen Bransgrove tries eco-driving with the Energy Saving Trust and Carly Brookfield lays out her vision for the industry in 2020 and opens the DIA casebook.
