Driving instructors who are members of the Engage scheme are being invited to join an online meeting later this month.

The Zoom meeting, on 21 April (10.40-12am), will provide Engage ADIs with the opportunity to touch base and discuss what support they may need once the coronavirus pandemic comes to an end, and the lockdown gradually begins to be eased.

The online meeting will be hosted by Ian Edwards who will provide a guided discussion on the current situation. He will be joined by Fiona Rose who will start an introductory topic on the challenges you may currently face with marketing. If there is an interest in this from the ADIs we will be arranging a more in-depth session.

It will be the first of several meetings to be organised over the coming months.

From 10:40 – 11:00 will allow people to sign into Zoom and get familiar with the app as well as provide support to access the meeting (for those who have not used the app before).

The meeting itself will then start at 11 am – 12:00

Developed by Cheshire and Merseyside Road Safety Partnerships, Engage provides ADIs with ongoing training and support to educate learner drivers about issues such as fatigue, peer pressure, drink and drug driving, speed and distraction. 

CCL training course postponed

Meanwhile, day two of the CCL training course – originally scheduled for 30 March – was cancelled due to Covid-19.

We are in the process of rescheduling and details of the new date will be released in due course.

We’re here to help

Many people across the country are going through difficult times right now, due to the unprecedented challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Driving instructors are no different.

But rest assured, there is always help at hand.

Local authorities in the north west are helping residents during this time and through the Engage Partnership, we are more than happy to direct ADIs to where you can find support in your local area.

So, if you need any help, advice or support, don’t hesitate to get in touch: info@engagedriving.co.uk
