DrivingTutors/Graded  Members Training Day

Sunday 24th April 2016 



"Hopefully, apart from very new members, you will recall that last year I highlighted April (2016) as the month that we would be holding our next Tutors Training Day.  The committee have agreed on the  date Sunday 24th April 2016 and The day will start at 10 am prompt.

The venue for this will be:

The Osprey

Stewarton Road

Newton Mearns


G77 6NP 

The Osprey can be accessed from the South Bound M77 by taking the Newton Mearns exit. Other nearby landmarks are:Waitrose : The Castle Beefeater Inn :Small Tesco :Home Bargains: Isobel Mair School

The joint organisers for this event are Alasdair McCreadie and Ian Morton. 

The routes have been suggested and agreed, and your Diploma Holder Obvservers for the day are Bob Jaconelli and John Milne.

Morning coffee, a light lunch and a final coffee/tea break will be provided at The Osprey and this will be free to all attending members. 

The format of the day will be a welcome, short class room discussion of the format of the day and any driving matters that members would like to clarify or discuss. Then dispersing for hands on driving experience over the declared routes, hopefully everyone getting the chance to show their skills plus learning from each other. 

Back to The Osprey for a light lunch and back out again that afternoon to cover another route or matters that were found to be problematic in the morning session.

Finishing at 4pm back at The Osprey for a debriefing and tea/coffee. 

Because of lack of support we required to cancel arrangements twice last year so to make the organising of this worthwhile it is essential that we have your participation.  I should therefore be pleased to know whether you will be in attendance at this event. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards 


The days training drives are intended to cover two differing routes.
