ARDS stands for Association Of Racing Driver Schools and is the licensing body for all UK Instructors. ARDS operate a grading system for instructors that goes from C (lowest) to A (highest). There is also an S Grade which is more of an organisational grade.
I have been instructing since 1991 when I started working for Jim Russell UK at Donington Park. ARDS was not around in those days but came in during the late 90s. At this time I was mainly working outside of ARDS doing private driver coaching.
I joined ARDS in 2001 and am currently an A Grade.
