Brockley Instructor Training TCIT Online
Brockley Instructor Training TCIT Online consists of twelve practical in-car driving instructor training sessions. Evaluating your own progress and recognising your strengths, limitations and development needs is the key to being self-aware. This means you can set your own goals, knowing exactly what it is you need to do in order to improve your driving skills and driving instructional techniques. The in-car sessions focus on your driving technique and help you develop this to beyond a DVSA Part 2 driving standard – along with your commentary driving skills and your driving instructional techniques – so that you understand all about lesson planning, levels of instruction, core competencies and feedback.
Working alongside your Brockley Instructor Training trainer, they will help you track and monitor your progress through the course, completing an evaluation form after each in-car session, thus triggering the next online materials. Our webinars and videos within the Brockley Driving Instructor Training (TCIT) Online Package contain valuable information that will cover a whole range of topics:
Communication and feedback
We look at different learning styles and how to build rapport; different questioning techniques and the importance of asking effective questions; the use of feedback for personal development, and for the development of the student driver; different feedback techniques, such as eliciting feedback and the use of scaling.
The overall focus is on client-centred learning techniques with a look at the theory and research that underpins and validates this approach. We focus on how to hold a coaching conversation in order to address the higher levels of the Goals for Driver Education (GDE) and how to develop thinking drivers. We use the GROW model to structure coaching conversations and essential coaching skills of questions, listening, feedback, rapport and intuition.
The GDE framework
The GDE framework sets out everything a driver needs to know and do in order to drive the car safely. It shows how the personality of the driver and the context of the journey impact on the choices and decisions the driver makes when dealing with traffic situations and controlling the vehicle. We look at the DVSA National Standards and show how they underpin the way we teach people to drive and the knowledge and information a driving instructor needs. The standards have a focus on client-centred learning and the new National Standards checks that every driving instructor has to complete, assessing that the ADI is giving value for money and ensuring learning is taking place.
Many driving instructors find the National Standards confusing and complicated. We help bring a dull topic to life and aim to leave you with a clear picture of what you need to know and do in order to address the standards and be an effective and successful driving instructor.

“My name is Natalie, and I am a driver!! Yeay! Gary has taught me everything I know (and a few things I didn’t strictly need to know thanks mate). He’s a funny, relaxed guy and always made me feel very comfortable. I noticed how important this was when he was on holiday and I went with one of the big companies for a few lessons and I was terrified the whole time!! Gary doesn’t drill routines or instructions into you, and isn’t sitting there with a checklist. I think he just waits until he feels safe in the car with you, and then sends you for your test!
He’s also really flexible and doesn’t get frustrated if you don’t get it: I didn’t understand reverse parking, could not do it to save my life, and he came up with seven different ways to teach me. In the end, we found one that suited me, and I can now park within a fag paper’s width from the kerb (his words!) Thanks Gary, you’re the best!!”
“Just to say thanks for getting me through my test and more importantly, teaching me to drive; having spent more than 60 hours with a very well-known driving school (of which I shall not name), I had lost all confidence; so it was refreshing to learn that contrary to belief. My previous instructor was actually at fault and he had very little to do with my ability to learn, as given the right instruction. 20 lessons later, I applied for my second test and passed with flying colours. My only regret is that I didn’t start with Gary in the first place, as money and time was wasted on an individual who drip fed information and quite literally took me for a ride. Gary wasted no time in steering me in the right direction and from the outset made it clear what skills were missing. He was focused and precise and genuinely took pride in his job. I have no reservations in recommending him to other would be students, I can only hope they take this advice and avoid the other two companies, (you know who they are!). Gary will teach you to drive and at your own pace, he is not, like so many others, simply trying to drag out the lessons to keep a consistent income, but because of this you may, as I did, have to wait to book as he does prove popular.”
