Barry Henser ADI, a driving instructor at Britannia Driving School, passed his test of continued and ability and fitness to give instruction (Check Test) on 25th February 2009 with the highest grade possible – a Grade 6. Barry done his instructor training with Britannia more than 14 years ago and has worked for them as a driving instructor from that time.
The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) carries out check-tests at regular intervals by sitting in on an instructor conducting a lesson with a pupil. The driving instructor is then graded on a scale of one to six with grade six being the highest grade. Approximately, only about 7 per cent of driving instructors are at the grade six level.
Barry Henser of Britannia Driving School said: “The key to getting a grade 6 is to continually improve your teaching skills and to stop perceiving the Check Test as a threat.”
