Whilst researching the final part of her Masters Degree in Driver Training, Lynne used her findings to write this guide for people preparing to take their Part 3 ADI exam. 'Pass Part 3' is a spiral bound book of 146 pages. It is full of useful information on the exam including the following:

    • An explanation of the exam.
    • A guide to lesson planning.
    • A section on each pre-set test, including a briefing for each; the structure of each PST explained; possible faults to identify; typical questions to ask your pupil; and a mark scheme for each PST.
    • A unique insight into how other PDIs performed in each test and special hints and tips.

This book begins with good advice on being realistic about your own training needs and fully explains the Part 3 test; how it is conducted and the different levels of ability role-played by the examiner in each of the two test phases. Lynne then takes us through the ADI 26/PT (the Part 3 test marking sheet), of which a copy of all ten is included, breaking down each of the three scoring sections: Core Competencies, Instructional Techniques, Instructor Characteristics and identifying what qualities the examiner is looking for. The section on Lesson Planning outlines the basic structure of a lesson including: Introduction; Aim; Recap and Link; Objectives; Lesson Brief; Practice and Feedback giving us a typical example of each step and advice on timings 4and visual aids.

The Preset Tests (PSTs)
All ten of the Part 3 PSTs are clearly identified by numbered tabs (1-10) and are covered using clear headings and graphics, which makes it easy to find what you want. The Phase 1 and 2 subjects are dealt with individually in some detail. Each Phase 1 subject has an introductory statement covering where and when the subject briefing should take place and some tips about how to get off to a good start. This is followed by the Lesson Plan which contains a list of Key Points, a Lesson Brief and a list of Typical Faults. Each of the Phase 2 subjects are covered in the same way except that the Lesson Brief is replaced by Suggested Questions, as a briefing on the subject is not required with the possible exception of PST 6 'Trained - Reverse Parking' which does have a Lesson Brief. The information here is well laid out using sub-headings and bullet points for each element. The Lesson Briefings and Suggested Questions are written out in script form for the PDI to read through, though Lynne does state that you should 'use them as a guide to develop your own style'. This is a great aid for those who struggle to get the information across without 'drying up'.

Each Phase 1 & 2 subject has its own set of ratings; firstly the 'Our survey said*' which shows us how the PDIs surveyed rated that subject in terms of difficulty - Difficult, Average or Easy. Secondly the official statistics taken from a DoT Road Safety Report, of almost 300 tests, showing the percentage of failures and the percent who passed scoring grade 4, 5 or 6. Finally Lynne gives her own opinion on the results accompanied by a smiley (or not so smiley) face and some sound advice based on her analysis.

This book is highly recommend for PDIs and trainers alike as it offers practical advice and guidance on how to fully prepare for the Part 3 exam. It also highlights those areas that you should focus your attention on in order to ace the exam.
