Re: I am thinking about sending congratulation cards well pupils pass test

I give my pupils a congrats card, a road map and some p plates, the p plates and cards are from RCM Marketing, and the road maps I buy from local supermarkets for £1.99

Re: I am thinking about sending congratulation cards well pupils pass test

I think its a good idea to do that because it will make sure your pupil remembers you and possibly recommends you to their friends. perhaps throw a few business cards in the congratulations card.

Re: I am thinking about sending congratulation cards well pupils pass test

yeah i think it'd be well received........... so it's not all just the pup to the ADI...

i know we're all grateful, but ADI being proud of achievment would be nice too 8-)

how ironic, couldn't think what to give to show my appreciation. so just bought him booze plus a nice card big_smile

Re: I am thinking about sending congratulation cards well pupils pass test

I usually send them a card (from any decent card shop), a few business cards to hand out and a key ring (from RCM or similar). I'm also thinking about designing a £10 off Pass Plus voucher and a "Recommend a Friend" voucher.

Re: I am thinking about sending congratulation cards well pupils pass test

I do a congratulations card, but with their photo on it.  I take a photo on a digi camera of them with the car, download it onto the laptop, and then print off the card on a portable printer. Only takes a few minutes to do but they all love it, and as I'm the only one around here who does it, they all show their mates, and hey presto, free advertising!
I also put the photo on my website in the 'Hall of Fame'.

Re: I am thinking about sending congratulation cards well pupils pass test

I have little black diecast mini's with my website address on.  I only give them to pass plus students at the moment though.

A little souvenir that they'll always have.

Re: I am thinking about sending congratulation cards well pupils pass test

I give a  congrats card with a few business cards inside, a motorway driving advice sheet and a keyring with "I Passed With Confidence" on one side and school name & phone no on other.

Like the mini idea though.

My mate took photos of all his pupils until one day a large gorilla appeared instead of the female pupil. the gorilla offered to arrange comprehensive facial reconstruction if my mate ever took photos of his wife again!

He no longer takes photos.

Re: I am thinking about sending congratulation cards well pupils pass test

As well as congrats catds I send a xmas card to all pupils who passed that year. Just reminds them I'm still around, might not have seen some of them for 11 months.

I get them from vistaprint and they work out at about £5 for twenty and are printed very professionally. Usually put a safety message in

"remember if you dont take your car to the pub....you cant drive it home!"

"have a safe and happy festive season"


They like being remembered

Re: I am thinking about sending congratulation cards well pupils pass test

that seems really nice Glenn.

i bet they appreciate that. it seems nice that you care in this way. i bet a lot of people would think highly of you-- to go out of your way in this way.

even the odd text now and again wouldn't be a bad thing, i don't think, to see how pupils are getting on with the driving. some may argue it's beyond the call of duty, but i think it's a nice touch really to show that you do care and are interested in how people are getting along.

Re: I am thinking about sending congratulation cards well pupils pass test

...so just bought him booze plus a nice card big_smile

(My edit)
Oooh! msdarcy can I take driving lessons with you? I like expensive premium beers, just for your info you understand.

This subject came up some time ago, I mentioned the 1st school I worked for before I went indie, the boss had bright ideas but was a menace to himself.
In this case, his "reward" was key rings, and big solid quality ones they were too, medallion size, thick, nicely made etc. Driving school logo enamelled on the front, plenty of room on the back to engrave the student's phone number etc (if keys are lost).

Only trouble was they came in Gold Silver & Bronze depending on the test score, a really stupid move on the boss's part. I wasn't going to give a lowly "bronze" to a worthy student who had the misfortune to not get stellar results on their test, and my fellow ADIs working for this school felt the same way.

After the while the boss realised his supply of expensive gold medallions were being depleted, very few silver and almost no bronze were given away at all. After a few shouting matches between himself & his ADIs he finally gave in and dropped the idea.
BTW our boss's attitude (he was upset if his student's didn't get 100%, he would hassle the test centres to get a 99% turned into a 100%) was instrumental in our testing system dropping percentage scores altogether in favour of a simple pass/fail (or Competent/Not Yet Competent) system.
