Working with you

Let me give you some information on Go Green

We started off designing and writing a course and the more we did the more we realised what was needed. What we thought would be a simple task has turned into so much more than we thought!

After all, what could we leave out?
PDIs need everything!

Once we start leaving things out we are no better an alternative to every other training resource that lacks the detail…. so a year later, with 3 of us working full time in it, we literally put the final full stop on the last page of Go Green at the end of the last lockdown , knowing we had something we are so incredibly proud to put out there.

It’s designed EXACTLY to work alongside ADIs like you! We emphasis throughout the course the importance of quality in car support. The course guides PDIs in how to source that and make the most of in car time, yet leaves the independent ADI/trainer free to structure in car session around what is needed on an individual basis and to use your own methods too.

Our hope is that ADIs like you will have PDIs on ‘Go Green’ and be reassured by knowing that these PDIs are not just getting the correct knowledge and understanding but are also getting so much ‘stuff’ we know we just can’t provide during in car session, allows us (me included!) to focus on the practical in car training

The package includes the workbooks to use in conjunction with the online content to guide them through their journey – along with live zoom sessions (these training hours can count towards a trainee licence if the PDI wants to go down that route, visual aids, the 14 days mini course of questions, virtual real lesson recordings feedback and of course a Go Green point of contact – me, Blaine or Laura… this is regardless where or who they choose to receive any additional training with. So if they were choosing to train with you, you’d know they are having all that extra support and back up too.

If you’d like to put yourself on our Go Green Supporters map you’d be very welcome. It’s a map where we are plotting where ADIs we know are so we can direct Go Green PDIs to people local to them who are willing to be a friendly face, offer anything from a cup of tea and chat, or lesson observation, or part 2 or 3 support, or local info, or, if the ADI wanted, in car training or sponsorship… with us knowing that ADI totally gets the who Go Green ‘way’ and will complement what the PDI is self studying.

We are offering ADIs our complete package minus the zooms, point of contact, visuals aids and 14 days to wake up your questions with a large discount for their own use. If you would like more details of this offer and how you can promote Go Green to your PDIs at a discount please email us at
