more of an update on my driver training

well since passing the driving test last month i have been back into the classroom and having incar training on how to instruct. This has been very interesting and funny at times when out in the car as you are in pairs as well with a qualified instuctor playing the roll of a new driver and you must teach him to drive well as you can emagin we messed trhings at time ......
any way i have now finished 40 hours of training and can apply for my trainee liciance and strat putting what i have been tort into practice but i still have a ferver 20 hours of training to do before iam ready to do my test..

the good news is i have been sponsered by BSM and they are taking me on as a trainee instructor and i start with them on the 30/10 this has been a long hard struggle for me what with having a hear inpairment as well as made it even harder at times
i am so looking forward to not having to drive a coach anymore and all them unsocial hours as well and having a propper routeen again
