Become a Street-Talk Defensive Driving Provider

Some things to consider before becoming a Street talk provider.

Do you have some experience in marketing and access to a reliable source of new clients? The minimum number of students you need to be able to run a course is four students.
Do you have an “I” Instructor endorsement to do the practical sessions in the course? If not,  you will need to get a qualified “I” endorsed Instructor to do the practical sessions for you.
Have you got good computer skills in the area of using Power Point and Excel as the course is run through these programmes. You may also need access to a data projector or TV monitor, as most presentation are done with these. 
Will you have access to a suitable venue?
