This is a book that all driving instructors should read who believe that their career doesn't necessarily have to begin and end teaching novice drivers to pass their driving test. It doesn't; the driver training world extends as far as the instructor's imagination and ambition allows. A successful career is one that fulfils that ambition. There are millions of people that need to be taught to drive all manner of vehicles efficiently. Other people will satisfy that need; some good and qualified: some bad and yet still hired to do the job.

The Turn in the Road is the lively account of the business life of a driving instructor capable of 'thinking outside of the box'. John Dennè's forty year career started when he joined BSM in 1962. As well as teaching novice drivers, he taught high performance driving, disabled drivers, and drivers of trucks, buses, aircraft refuellers and industrial plant. With the Road Transport Industry Training Board he was responsible for training and testing driving instructors and compiled the first comprehensive training manual detailing the task.

As a consultant he ended up in Hong Kong where he spent almost ten years responsible for redesigning and developing the training of bus drivers for the Kowloon Motor Bus Company. Upon returning to the UK he was recruited by the AA in order to help design and establish the AA's Driving School where he remained in a senior management position until his retirement in 2002.

John was also the Managing Director of Transport Training International Ltd. and provided driver and instructor training services to the Seychelles and Mauritius.

More and more nations seek to compete in this world and need efficient transport systems. Many of them are ex-British colonies that continue to adopt our driving procedures.
