Become an Honest Truth Driving Instructor

As an Approved Driving Instructor, you’ll know that each year 688,000 people in the UK pass their driving test and join the highest risk road user group: newly qualified drivers.  During the course of lessons, you will undoubtedly provide lots of practical information and advice about what will help them through the driving test and keep them from making many of the skill-based errors that could result in a collision.  However, despite the driving test focusing on skill-based manoeuvres, the vast majority of collisions involving new and young drivers aren’t as a result of poor driving skill.  What’s far more likely to lead to a collision is poor decision making and lack of understanding of the dangers faced by new drivers such as distractions, fatique and inappropriate speed.

As an ADI you have a unique opportunity to reach every new driver at a key point in their driving career – when they are still in the learning frame of mind and receptive to new information.

The Honest Truth is a road safety campaign that harnesses the power of your relationship with learners, by providing structured resources and guidance, helping you to quickly and easily deliver key road safety messages within the context of normal driving lessons.  In short, The Honest Truth is the road safety plug-in for driving instructors.


How is the Honest Truth delivered?

As an ADI you will probably we under pressure from learners to get them through their tests as quickly and as cheaply as possible, so spending a lot of time on road safety education is not always an option.  Therefore, we’ve put together a delivery system that ensures vital road safety education can be conveyed effectively, within just a few minutes per lesson.
