NOW A GRADE ‘A’ DRIVING INSTRUCTOR
Today was my turn to be in the hot seat, to sweat and stress while taking the driving instructors standards check. The standards check is taken by all driving instructors to ensure they are doing their jobs correctly and to a high standard. The test involves the driving instructor giving a normal driving lesson to a pupil, whilst a senior examiner sits in the back of the car and watches how the lesson is conducted by the instructor.
There is a lot a stake for any instructor on a standards check, as an instructor can be removed from the DVSA Instructors register if they do not meet the standard. A grade is then issued to the instructor to show how good they are and how well they did on the standards check.
I am pleased to say that today the examiner gave me a grade ‘A’, which is the highest possible grade possible, I am really happy with this result and hope that it will reflect well in the future with my pupils.
