Drivers Making Progress!

RoSPA East Yorkshire - E-YARD, ran another Driver Progressive Development Course on Saturday 6 October.

Again led by Group Tutor Andy Trevor, this time with assistance from fellow Tutors Julian Taylor and Jo Bowers.

The format was the same as previously with turns being taken to be tutored and then observing others being tutored

It also served as a peer-to-peer quality check for the tutors, feeding back on one anothers performance, part of the ongoing process to raise and maintain the quality of (E-YARD) training standards

Meeting point was McDonald's, Beverley, with Guy and Charlie who are car associate's.

It started by splitting the group into a 3 and a 2 for training. Andy was with Guy and Jo, Julian went with Charlie.

First thing was a legal check for Guy as he was driving, eye site check was also done.

Guy was asked about his car and about a moving brake test to get him thinking!

Initially straight into town and with 20 and 30 mph limits covered ,this crew left Beverley and covered 40, 50 and NSL roads.

They then also covered country, single track roads and national speed limit roads and on to dual carriageway.

Julian and Charlie covered the same mix of roads, this drive also serving as an initial assessment for Charlie.

Returning to the starting point after about 50 minutes of driving for a coffee and debrief, there were some very good points for Guy to improve on and some good discussion points Jo and Guy to talk about.

Charlie was debriefed after his first 'advanced' drive and given advice and pointers by Julian

A change of associate's with tutors, Guy to Julian and Charlie to Andy and Jo.

It was Jo's turn to drive with Charlie in the back to observe and write his observations down.
