Congratulation to Oliver Mills-Nanyn who has passed his Advanced Car Test with Examiner Peter Doyle.

Oliver follows his father and brother who both passed their Advanced Test with West Pennine Group. This has to be quite a family achievement!

Oliver thanked all the Observers who worked with him to secure his success.

He can be seen here receiving his certificate from Noel Davies Chairman of West Pennine Group.

 

                 Paul Egan

Paul Egan had this to say about his experience with the West Pennine Group:-

I owe a great deal of thanks to all members of West Pennine, both the observers and other committee members who run a very successful group. I am very grateful to everyone who gives up their free time to help to make us all safer and better drivers.  
I have very much enjoyed coming along each Sunday, everyone has been very helpful and I think it is great we get to go out with a different observer each week. 
I would like to thank my examiner Mr Peter Doyle.Peter is based in Yorkshire and so I met him at j24 on the M62 on Thursday afternoon. 
 
The route started by heading back towards Oldham via the motorway, then through Ripponden, Elland, Sowerby bridge, Halifax and Brighouse.
During the test I was asked to do a parallel park, on this occasion it was probably the best one I've ever done, I just reversed into a spot and finished very close to the kerb, right in the middle of the space without having to adjust my position once - a feet I'm sure I won't ever manage again.
 
Thanks again to everyone and good luck to all associates. Paul

 

          It's another F1RST for WPG

Here is Roy Brown receiving his F1RST Test Pass Certificate from examiner John Williams

Roy Brown had this to say about his test:-

 

Firstly I would like to thank the West Pennine Group of Advanced Motorists, and all the observers who had taken me out on all the Sunday morning runs, for all the time and effort they have put in for me. I am aware that this November celebrates 40 years since the West Pennine Group of Advanced Motorists was formed, and I will probably get in trouble later for saying this, but between Beryl, Norma, and Peter, who have been volunteers with this group for over 115 years between them, all to encourage safer driving. I took my Advanced Driving Test with John Williams last Sunday, and passed with a FIRST. I have known that my driving standards have been deteriorating over recent years, and that is why I came to the group. I have always said to people over the years that I could drive to a good standard but do not always do so. I now am going to thank you all at the West Pennine Group of Advanced Motorists, for all the good work you have done over the last 40 years to promote safer driving.  

Vice Chairman, Pete Smithies and Andrew Reeves

 

Here’s Andrew Reeves receiving his FIRST certificate from West Pennine’s Vice Chairman Peter Smithies.

 

Yes…..it’s another FIRST.

 

Many congratulations to Andrew who took his Advanced Car Test with Examiner John Williams.

 

When Andrew visited the Group to receive his certificates he thanked all the Observers who had supported him during his preparation. Andrew added that he was hoping to continue and work towards other Advanced Driving qualifications soon.

We all look forward to seeing you again Andrew.

 West Pennine Group is delighted that Mimi Chilton has passed her Advanced Car

Test. Once Mimi had been given a demonstration drive by Noel Davies she never

looked back. Mimi didn’t continue her course straight away because of a series of

pre-arranged events but soon, with the support of Observers Dave Cannon, Colin

Watt, John Prince and Noel she was ready for her Assessment with Beryl Schofield.

Peter Smithies added the final touches to Mimi’s course and she passed her test with

Examiner Dudley Martin.

Here’s Mimi receiving her certificate from West Pennine Chairman Noel Davies.

Do call in from time to time Mimi, you’ll be very welcome.

West Pennine Group sends congratulations to Nick Cotterill-Waring after he passed the Advanced Car Test with Examiner Dudley Martin.

Nick made the decision to come along to West Pennine and prepare for his Test because he has a young daughter who enjoys being taken out in his car and he wanted to make sure that he was doing the very best that he could to keep his family safe.

Once Nick had been given a Demonstration Drive by Dave Cannon he never looked back.

Nick was supported throughout his course by Dave, Colin Watt, Noel Davies, Beryl Schofield and Peter Smithies.

Here’s Nick receiving his certificate from Noel Davies, West Pennine’s Chairman.

Well done Nick…come and see us again soon!

       CONGRATULATIONS

 

 Here’s Lauren Teasdale who has passed her Advanced Driving Test with Examiner

Stephen Bielizna. She’s receiving her certificate from West Pennine Chairman Noel

Davies. Lauren thanked all the Observers who supported her through the course.

Lauren is another of our younger members and she would be the first to admit that she

loves to go out on a Saturday night. However, she was determined to prepare for the

Advanced Test and so committed herself to the required number of advisory sessions

without any hesitation. Lauren set a fine example for others to follow.

Congratulations Lauren and thanks very much for the “Celebrations”. Do drop in to

see us again soon.

 

 

 

Congratulations to James Byrom who has passed his Advanced Car Test with

examiner Stephen Bielizna. James is seen here receiving his certificate from our

Chairman Noel Davies.

West Pennine observer Dave Cannon gave James a demonstration drive on his first

visit and Noel Davies, John Prince and Peter Smithies took James on his observed

runs. Beryl Schofield did James’s assessment.

It’s always refreshing to work with younger Associates as they prepare for their Test

and James, whose enthusiasm was infectious, was a great example.

Thank you for the biscuits James and come back to see us soon.....Observer Training

has been mentioned!!

 

 

Congratulations to Ken Vickers who has passed his Advanced Car Test with examiner

Chris Givvons.

West Pennine observer Dave Cannon gave Ken a demonstration drive on his first visit

and Colin Watt, Robin Unsworth, Peter Smithies, John Prince and Noel Davies

supported Ken during his preparation for test. Beryl Schofield did Ken’s assessment.

When Ken came back to receive his certificate----seen here with West Pennine

Chairman Noel Davies----he brought a selection of hand-made key rings for us. We

don’t think that everyone at West Pennine knew that Ken had made the keyrings

himself.

Come back to see us anytime Ken, you’ll be most welcome.

 

ANOTHER

 

 

F1RST

 

 

TEST PASS

 

 

FOR

THE WEST PENNINE GROUP

 

Well done to Phil Davies

Another F1RST Test Pass for the West Pennine Group, well done Phil

Phil Davies has achieved a FIRST on his advanced car test.  Congratulations Phil and 
very well done.  When chairman Noel Davies presented Phil with his certificate, Phil 
told us that during the first few weeks of guidance he felt that he was learning a 
completely new skill.  Eventually, Phil said it all just clicked and he doesn’t think that 
he can go back to the way he was driving before he started the course.  We think that 
many people feel a bit like that at the beginning but we know that as the course 
progresses it does just what Phil said--------it clicks.  Very soon it becomes second 
nature.
Phil thanks all the observers who helped him through the course.
We know we’ll see you again Phil...observer training beckons.

Chairman Noel Davies is presenting Phil Davies (no relation) with his Test Pass Certificate
Matt Rothwell seen here recieving his Test Pass Certificate from group Chairman Noel Davies

Here’s another test pass for West Pennine Group. Congratulations to Matt Rothwell

who has passed his advanced car test with examiner Dudley Martin. When Matt

received his certificate from Chairman Noel Davies he remarked that he didn’t feel

the DVLA test fully prepared him for driving in all conditions and circumstances and

so he looked to gain more experience and guidance from the IAM. Wise words!!

Matt thanked all the West Pennine observers who worked with him during his course.

Thanks for the biscuits Matt. Come in anytime for a chat or even a run out with us.

 

 

The smile on Tessa’s face when she received her certificate from group chairman Noel
Davies said it all.  Tessa Law has passed her advanced car test with examiner Chris 
Edwards.  She thanked all her observers for their patience and good advice.  Do call in
for a coffee one Sunday morning Tessa, we’ll be pleased to see you.

 

 

Tessa Law is seen here receiving her Test Pass Certificate from Chairman Noel Davies
Ramon Collins receiving his Test Pass Certificate from Group Chairman Noel Davies

 

Look who’s passed his Advanced Car Test.  Ramon Collins is seen here receiving his certificate from West Pennine chairman Noel Davies.

Towards the end of his course and with a test booked, Ramon contracted an infection which required quite a few weeks of recovery.  Nevertheless, Ramon returned with great determination for further observed runs to bring him back to Test ready standard and passed his Test with Examiner Chris Givvons.

Well done Ramon!

Ramon was supported by Dave Cannon who also gave Ramon his Demonstration Drive, John Prince, Colin Batchelor, Janet Boardman, Colin Watt, Noel Davies and Roger Petty.  Beryl Schofield did Ramon’s Assessment.

We hope that you’ll call in at the Clayton Green to see us from time to time, Ramon.

 

 

Here’s another success for West Pennine Group.  Many congratulations to James Barker who has passed his Advanced Car Test with Examiner Dudley Martin—well deserved!  Chairman Noel Davies is seen here presenting James with his certificate.

James was given Observed Runs by Colin Watt, Dave Cannon, John Prince, Peter Smithies, Noel Davies, Janet Boardman and Robin Unsworth.  Beryl Schofield did James’ assessment.  James has said that he will consider training to become an Observer.  We all hope so James!

Nina Corke

Congratulations to Nina Corke on passing her Advanced Car Test with Examiner Chris Givvons. Many thanks to Noel Davies and John Prince for preparing

Nina for her Test. Here is another example of how drivers keep the West Pennine Group in mind over time. Nina’s husband took his Advanced Car Test after his course with West Pennine in 1997. The picture shows Nina showing off her pass certificate.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s another Test pass for West Pennine Group. Congratulations to Lee Ingham who passed his Test with Examiner Chris Givvons. Group Chairman presented Lee with his certificate.

The Group is often impressed with the way drivers keep Advanced Motoring in mind as the years go by and Lee is a great example of this. Lee visited West Pennine Group for a Demonstration Drive in 1994. At that time it was not convenient for Lee to allocate the time required to preparation for the Advanced Test but he clearly kept it in his thoughts until recently when he returned and successfully completed his course. Lee has indicated that he hopes to begin training as an Observer soon.

Lee Ingham with West Pennine Group Chairman Noel Davies

Call in for a coffee or to have your driving checked Tony…we’ll all be pleased to see you.

It's so nice to get the family involved.

Eric Aldred has passed his Advanced Car Test with Examiner John Williams and has achieved a FIRST.

Before Eric joined the West Pennine Group he volunteered for a Drivecheck with the IAM and the Examiner recommended that he take the next step to prepare for the Advanced Test with a Group.  Eric chose the West Pennine Group and we’re glad that he did.

Once Dave Cannon had given Eric a Demonstration Drive he was given guidance from John Prince, Noel Davies and Colin Watt.   Peter Smithies conducted his Assessment. Eric thanked all his Observers saying he couldn’t have done it without them.

Congratulations go to Eric and he can be seen here receiving his certificates from Vice Chairman Peter Smithies.

Well done to Brendan Murphy who has passed his Advanced Car Test with Examiner Peter Haddock.  When Brendan first visited West Pennine Group he was given a Demonstration Drive by Dave Cannon.  His Observed Runs were guided by Colin Watt, John Prince, Colin Batchelor and Peter Smithies.  Beryl Schofield conducted the Assessment.  It has taken a little longer than most of our Associates for Brendan to reach Test ready status because he has had to put his employment with the emergency services and his call-out duties first,  therefore he hasn’t been able to attend as regularly as he would have liked.  West Pennine Group has admired the way in which Brendan has committed himself to the challenge of passing the Advanced Test.

West Pennine Group is thrilled to announce that Margaret O’Brien has passed her Advanced Car Test. 

Margaret was given a Demonstration Drive by Dave Cannon and Observers Noel Davies, Roger Petty, Janet Boardman, John Prince and Colin Watt helped her through the course.  Senior Observer Peter Smithies conducted Margaret’s Assessment and her Test was taken by IAM Examiner John Williams.

Here’s Margaret receiving her certificate from Noel Davies, West Pennine ’s Chairman.

Congratulations Margaret!

Examiner, John Williams, Des Conroy, Group Chairman, Noel Davies

 

 

Well done to Des Conroy who has passed his Advanced Car Test with Examiner John Williams.  On receiving his certificate from West Pennine Group Chairman Noel Davies, Des said that he had learnt a great deal from all West Pennine Observers and that you never stop learning.  Now most people would think that was a fairly unremarkable thing for Des to have said----but -----consider this-----

In the year that Des was born King George V was the reigning Monarch, the Prime Minister was David Lloyd George, the BBC was formed and the first Branston Pickle was produced at Branston Staffs.  Also, a new football stadium was being built at Wembley---the stadium which was replaced in 2007!! 

Call in for a coffee anytime Des, we’re missing you already.

We’re very pleased to tell you that Angela Hopkinson has passed her Advanced Car Test with Examiner John Williams.

We’re delighted to report that John Quinn has passed his Advanced Test.  When West Pennine Group held a fundraising event for Dr Kershaw’s Hospice,  John came across to our eezi-up shelter to find out how he could start the course and now he’s a full member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists .  Well done John!!!

John told us that it’s something he had often thought about but the time wasn’t always right.  After he retired, John was determined to put that right.

Here’s John receiving his certificate from Noel Davies our Group Chairman.

Another Test pass for West Pennine Group— many congratulations to Cran Kennedy who passed his Test with examiner John Williams.  Peter Smithies conducted Cran’s Assessment but not before Dave Cannon, John Prince, Noel Davies and Beryl Schofield had offered advice on Observed Runs.

Marie is very busy at the moment but has indicated that she would be interested to know more about becoming a Group Observer in the future.

CONGRATULATIONS and well done to Klaudia Klimbo who has passed her Advanced Driving Test with Examiner Peter Haddock. 

 Klaudia’s Demonstration Driver was Colin Watt and straightaway she was encouraged to prepare to take the Advanced Car Test. 

 Klaudia has had to fit Observed Runs around her work schedule which hasn’t been easy for her but she was determined to complete the course and take the Test.  West Pennine Observers Dave Cannon, Colin Watt, John Prince and Noel Davies took Klaudia through the course and her Assessment was conducted by Beryl Schofield.  When Klaudia, pictured, returned to receive her certificate from Group Chairman Noel Davies she thanked all the Observers who had given time to assist her and -------brought a tin of toffees for us all!  Many thanks Klaudia.

A big round of applause for Ron Bunting who has passed his Test with Examiner John Williams.  When Ron came to visit us at the Clayton Green he was given a Demonstration Drive by Peter Smithies and agreed straight away that he wanted to do the course and prepare to take the Advanced Car Test.  West Pennine Observers Dave Cannon, Noel Davies, Colin Watt, John Prince, Beryl Schofield and Janet Boardman took Ron through the course and his Assessment was conducted by Peter Smithies.  When Ron, pictured, received his certificate from Group chairman Noel Davies, he thanked everyone in the Group and also reported some positive feedback from the Examiner John Williams.

Test with IAM Examiner Steven Bielizne.

 

 

To All at the West Pennine Group

At first I was not totally convinced that I would gain hugely from completing the Advanced Driving course. However the benefits have been immense. Completion of the course has improved my driving confidence and skill and taught me professional techniques to make maximum efficient progress whilst not breaching speed limits at all. I would highly recommend this course with the professional team at the West Pennines Group. It is difficult at the start and requires practice but now I am reaping all the benefits of reduced insurance cost, safer driving, better anticipation and reduced likelihood of accidents along with the small matter of making great progress without running the risk of penalty points. For the sake of 1.5 hours on Sunday morning for some weeks, the benefits can aid your driving for a lifetime.

Thank you

Patrick
