Check test training testimonial.
After receiving a grade 3 on my first fleet check test you can imagine my panic when the letter dropped on the doormat for attempt 2.
After looking around for some check test training I was pointed in the direction of George.
My training with George was just what I needed. Clear, concise and well prepared. He answered all my questions with ease and put all my fears to rest. Our in car session was brilliant, helping me to understand the direction my questioning needed to take and ensuring my level of instruction remained at the correct level.
With many thanks to George I achieved a grade 5 today and I couldn’t be happier.
When asked “what have you learned from today’s training session” our clients replied :
