Julia meets the ADI Registrar!

On 18 May 2010, Julia was invited to the Driving Standards Agency’s Cardington area in Bedfordshire, where the driving examiners are trained.  She was invited by Charles Morton, the Registrar of Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs), who has a daughter with Asperger syndrome.

Accompanied by Mac McDade, the director of  ‘Ideas4ADIs’ , a company designing products for instructors, and Barbara Trafford, head of the ADI Federation, Julia had a full tour of the training ground and examiner training areas.  She was presented with the ‘ADI Industry Achievement Award’ by Mac, the award’s sponsor, before taking a full tour of the site.  Charles, the registrar, is standing on the far right of the photo on the right.

Charles was ‘very impressed’ with Julia’s ability and qualifications as the UK’s most qualified ADI.

Because his daughter Fiona has AS, he fully understood the condition and was able to appreciate the effort involved to succeed.

The day at Cardington included a bus tour and a meeting with Brian, the chief trainer.
