    Just want people to know.

    Please move this if it’s in the wrong place.

    I’ve recently given up being a Driving Instructor. I was in the area so I popped in to my local driving test centre in Peterborough to say hi and have a catch up.
    To my pleasant surprise I found an MNDA banner and collection box, the examiners collected £162 by making coffee for the instructors.
    Just wanted to give them a shout out.

        TB once said that "The forum is still the best source for friendship and information."

        It will only remain so if new people post and keep us updated on things that work or don't work and tips.

        Please post on old threads that are of use so that others see them and feel free to start new subjects and threads.

                Hi Jim. I cannot remember if I've already told you but I was a driving instructor until the end of January last year. It's great that you can pop into the test centre and ditto great that they've collected for MNDA. Lynne

                  My final test was my daughters boyfriend who passed February 28th, after 16 years of teaching, almost managed not to cry saying goodbye to the examiners on duty. When posted or our Facebook group and my schools page, I was overwhelmed with the replies, had me in tears for days.
