Down Trained Instructor Course : Successful completion of this 5 day course will enable you to deliver Compulsory Basic Training (CBT). All training and assessment is carried out in-house by one of our highly-qualified instructors. There's no test - just continuous training and assessment until you reach the required standard to deliver the CBT course.

Cardington Instructor Course : This 3 day course builds on all the skills taught for the Down Trained Instructor Course, plus the skills required to deliver CBT training to a higher standard, and supervise CBT instructors who have undertaken the Down Trained Instructor Course. Having successfully completed the course you are required to attend a two day assessment at the Driving Standards Agency's headquarters in Cardington, Bedford. Instructors who are successful can deliver CBTs, supervise Down Trained Instructors and deliver our 125cc and training sessions.

Direct Access Instructor Course: This 3 day course is a natural progression from the Cardington Instructor Course. All training is provided by one of ProScot's Direct Access Instructors, on successful completion of this course you are required to attend a half day assessment at the Driving Standards Agency's headquarters in Cardington, Bedford. Instructors who are successful can deliver CBTs, supervise Down Trained Instructors and deliver both our 125cc and DAS training sessions.

Very good and patient driving instructor. It took me a few attempts to pass but when I did I only had 3 minor faults. I couldn't have done it without Jim. Thanks for everything. Will definitely recommend.
