Instructors who have recently passed the ADI training:
Hi Tricia, I would just like to thank you for first class guidance and tuition that I received during my preparation for the ADI examinations, which resulted in a pass for my ADI Part 3 at the first sitting. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with you, and can only say that your attention to detail, your commitment to student success, and your overall dedication to the driving industry are commendable, and that it was an absolute pleasure to be one of your students. I am now a DSA Approved Driving Instructor, trained by the best! Thank you! 🙂
I have always believed that in any line of work there is no substitute for experience.
When I began my training with Tricia to qualify as an ADI, that experience was evident throughout. Tricia has had many years in the industry and coupled with a friendly personality, enthusiasm and dedication to her work, she made the learning process easy and enjoyable from start to finish.
As a result, I am now enjoying a full time career as an ADI and continue to learn as well as pass on my new found knowledge to my pupils with the help of Tricia and the friendly, professional team at Tricia Moir school of motoring.
I have just qualified as an ADI ,what a wwonderful feeling !!
Thanks to Tricia ,she got me through it.It was hard work but she had a very positive attitude and was always full of encouragemnt.She had a great way of explaining and simplyfing things,she would alwaysfind a way for me to understand it.Thanks Tricia for all your help and lots of patience.

“Thank you Tricia for all of the time you put into my training, especially part 3. Having had a bad experience with a previous ADI trainer, I was relieved to find someone who knew her job inside out and had the patience and experise to help me achieve a good pass. I was particularly impressed with how you were able to adapt your teaching methods when required so that difficult or complex subjects were more easily understood.

“My experience with Trica was a very good start to my new career as a driving instructor. Tricia’s friendly and open approach to teaching meant she tailored her techniques to suit me and being able to contact her any time with questions that I needed answered was never any hassle. Tricia’s technique of teaching made it a lot easier to understand the whole picture of becoming a driving instructor. When you pass and start teaching Tricia is still there for any small questions you might have! Great Help – thanks again Tricia.

Started my adi training with Tricia over a year and a half ago. I was looking for a career change as I was a lifeguard/ duty manager at a local leisure centre. When I passed my part 3, I was elated. This would change my hours of working and let me spend time with my elderly mother. I would recommend Tricia as an adi instructor Trainer she is very patient and knowledgeable of the industry.??
Testimonial to come.David Stevenson
Having been qualified as an ADI for exactly 30 years this month, when the invitation to book a Standards Check dropped through the letterbox, I set about some preparation for the big day.
In the knowledge that a few things had changed, for example the name “Check Test” is now the “Standards Check” and that the words “pupil centred ” were being bandied about, it was a no brainer to get some first hand information and advice.
On talking to Tricia who I had already known for a long time, it was clear that as she’s in the business of training instructors from scratch, she also knew the systems for marking and evaluation of the Standards Check.
The first few sessions were one to one, to tighten up on terminology, some lazy instructing and the management of risk.
Then a few sessions with a live pupil, which is an eye opener in itself. Things are less predictable with a live pupil and if there’s a way to tighten up risk management, then that’s it.
From there it’s the big day and of course, nothing’s predictable. You turn up, adapt to what’s going on and do what seems right.
Then the Examiner goes off to mark up the sheet, tot up the score and re-emerges to do a comprehensive debrief, and there you are.
It so happened that I was graded as a A, funnily enough with the precise score Tricia had marked me on in the last training session.
You pays your money and takes your chance. I’d say, even with 30 years experience, a million learner miles and holding every driving licence available, that if you’ve a Standards Check due, or are finding the job seems now tougher now than before, then consider investing in some training. It’ll definitely not make your life harder. At worst you’ll do it and not be any worse off, but at best you’ll benefit from and easier job, better results and possibly a refresh of some old instruction techniques.
I’ll definitely carry on with updating training periodically, rather than waiting till there’s a deadline. In the grand scheme of things it’s probably a bit rich to be telling pupils about the value of paying for extra training from you if you’re not prepared to do it yourself.
