DIAmond Special Test

DIAmond Special Test

Driving Instructor, Uncle Joe, has passed the DIAmond Special Test

The DIAmond Special Test is aimed at drivers and professional driver trainers who want to take their driving or riding to the highest level.

Going beyond the DIAmond Advanced Test, and adding new elements such as commentary driving, it is the perfect springboard on to opening up your career as a driver trainer.

Perhaps the most demanding driving qualification outside of the emergency services, the DIAmond Special Test proves you’ve got what it takes.

The test lasts for 90 minutes and is assessed over various driving conditions which will include town, country and motorway driving. The control of the vehicle must be extremely smooth and a high level of skill must be shown throughout the drive. You need fewer than two faults to pass.
A fault must not be repeated. The Special Test also includes a commentary driving element and candidates are expected to have a thorough understanding of eco-safe driving.

The DIAmond Special test is recognised and approved by the Driving Standard Agency.The special test is seen to be higher than the advanced Driving Test for Driving instructor by the DSA.

“I passed the DIAmond Special Test on my first attempt with only two driving faults. These faults were observed in the last five minutes to the end of the 90 minutes test. Consequently this has improved the quality of the driving and tuition given to my students. There have been remarkable results by way of experiencing and recording more first time passes achieved by my pupils upon completing the Diamond Special Test.”

"Hooray! Have just passed my driving test yesterday. A massive THANK YOU to Uncle Joe. After a painful experience with other instructors, I was on the verge of giving up. Then Alas! came across Uncle Joe's driving school website. I decided to give him a call and book lessons. I have not regretted that decision. Uncle Joe is just amazing. He immediately recognised the best way to get me through the journey. Despite his busy schedule, Uncle Joe showed genuine interest in helping me pass. He was able to instil confidence in me, which in all honesty I did not have. Uncle Joe is my answered prayer. To anyone going through what I experienced, then I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed. Learning with Uncle Joe is certainly an exciting experience. ONCE AGAIN. THANK YOU UNCLE JOE DRIVING SCHOOL"  Read More
