Patrick. A.A. Garner

I have held my full car driving licence since 1983, have been a qualified ADI since 1995 and have been a qualified Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) driver since 1993. I am currently graded 6 by the Driving Standards Agency which is the highest grade available to Approved Driving Instructors.

My experience is extensive. Prior to becoming an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI), I worked in the Metropolitan Police Force as a Police Officer where I had experience of high speed driving. I then went on to a career in the London Fire Brigade, experiencing life as a fire appliance driver, progressing to the London Fire Brigades Driver Training School. In this driving department I teach fire fighters to drive fire engines. I am also a qualified skid-training instructor, 'one of only a few' in the world, simulating various different skids on fire appliances and skid car.

I regularly teach Emergency Fire Appliance Driving (EFAD) as based on police road craft. This entails speed exemptions, legally allowing me to exceed the speed limit and contravene red traffic lights.

I am an Aerial Ladder Platform (ALP) instructor and examiner, training fire fighters to operate the London Fire Brigades biggest fire fighting appliance and in addition to this I am a delegated Driving Standards Agency (DSA) Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) examiner and regularly conduct driving tests for candidates for rigid lorries, Category C.

I am ORDIT (The Official Register of Driving Instructor Training) qualified as recognised by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) which allows me to train people to become Approved Driving Instructors (ADI). I have now done this for a number of years and am considered a trainer of trainers.

I am a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorist (IAM) for both cars and commercial lorries.

I am a registered Pass Plus instructor as are all of the instructors of the >> In~Control << Driving School. This allows newly qualified drivers to take a course of positive driving enabling them to gain further experience on the road as well as insurance company discounts.
