The Green Room #9 - Examiners strike, should we? With Chris Bensted

This is a shortened version of the Green Room, for the full 90 minute episode and a load of extra content, check out The Instructor Podcast Premium at

Chris Bensted of The DITC joins me to discuss the latest goings on from within the industry with the main focus being on the decision of driving examiners striking. We discuss how this will affect driving instructors and driving tests. We also throw up ideas of how we can make the best of this situation.

We cover plenty of other topics too, including:

  • Why don't we offer more than the minimum standards?
  • Examiners strike, should we?
  • The impact of The DITC.
  • The latest stats for driving tests.
  • Does the inability to get fuel, mean there's a fuel shortage?
