Wow, so much has changed in driving instructor training over the years, I thought you may like to see a clip from the days of pre-set tests and examiner role-play. Nowadays, it is client-centred learning and goal-focused training that is far more engaging and effective for both the student driver and the PDIs, who are training to become driving instructors.

If they knew that they are around four times more likely to crash than the average driver, what would they want their driving ability to be like once they have passed their test?
What would be the consequences to them of having a crash? You could try getting them to mind map this question, making them aware of:
Coaching and client-centred learning techniques help you challenge the type of statements that learner drivers might make.
