Ratings and Reviews
At time of writing I cannot give 5 stars simply because it’s still in BETA phase. What I can say though, is that the My Drive Time Team have really pulled out the stops to create an app for Driving Instructors that does everything you could possibly want. There are a few things still to come which will be the cherry on top of what is a quality piece of software. It’s a diary, an accountant, a route planner and recorder. It’s flexible when it comes to creating your own syllabus and creates greater interactivity between the ADI and student through the use of an excellent student version and reflective log. If you sat 100 ADIs down in a room and asked them what they want from an app then My Drive Time has delivered. True to form, there will be those that think it’s not all it’s cracked up to be but I think that’s down to ignorance or lack of understanding. Sure, there’s a few bugs, but they are quickly looked into and resolved either though an email or an update. What I do know is that the team will look at any criticisms and work their socks off to win over the nay sayers, but, you, still never please everyone. As with all new tech, you have to play with it for a while to get the true feel for its capability. I’ve been using it for a month now and I’m still finding things that make me go “oooooh” and “ahhhh”. Quite simply it’s awesome. I loved My Drive Time 1 but MDT2 is in a completely different class. Synchronisation between my iPhone 12 and iPad Air is smooth and almost instant, literally a few seconds. As for tech support. If you do as they ask and simply email the support team you should get a response within a day, although I have to say, it’s generally no more than a few hours and certainly better than having a whinge on the Facebook group. Thank you for creating this. It should be on everyone’s must have list when starting out on their ADI journey.
Change is good.
Having juggled; paper diary, online diary, excel spreadsheets, pupil records and resource links, within a franchise MDT2 has consolodated and clarified all these and more.
Who doesn’t like more time to chill. The feeling of security when u lift ur phone and know all the data is there.
No more juggling the piles of paperwork on the way to the car.
No more filing, no more rummaging for those contact details. No more duplication to keep your ‘office manager’ appraised of your whereabouts and plans ;-)
U do have to trust the app and your phone to do the job, if your not able to do that and are going to continue your previous methods of record playing… well just don’t 😝
5 stars as a Beta, more stable than other leading apps, and very responsive to user questions.
Thank you for a more chilled approach to ADIing :-)
Full of potential
It’s really good for day to day running of business. BUT as someone with a life outside of Driving I need this to sync with my day to day calendar, which it doesn’t at time of writing review. Also it would be great if I could set my “workday” availability and students could book via app online.
