Re: What has surprised you the most about your pupils ?

When enquiring into lessons: how much is a driving licence: can I get one off you?

Just an aside: a new pupil this morning was talking herself through pulling in at the side of the road: a bit like this: 'check mirrors, off the escalator................' ;D pmsl

Re: What has surprised you the most about your pupils ?

Whilst we are on the subject of funny stories, have a listen to this one.

One of my lady pupils was just ready for roundabouts and so we went through a briefing complete with diagrams. I explained the '12 o'clock rule' again with the aid of a diagram. It was one of those that had a clock face in the middle of the roundabout, making it clear about the reasons for signalling right.

Anyway we practice a few quiet roundabouts without a hitch. Several lessons go by and still no problems with roundabouts. Half term comes and instead of picking her up after school I picked her up from home. For some strange reason we are no longer signalling right at the roundabouts when turning right. After having to remind her several times I decide to pull over so we can discuss the problem.

I ask why she isn't signalling when turning right at the roundabouts. See below for her reply.


"You told me to signal right if it was after 12 O'clock and it's only 10.30 so that's why I didn't signal" Dohhhhhhhhhhh
When I pulled myself together and trying not to laugh we went through the whole procedure again. Even then I'm not sure I got through.

Apparently all her other lessons were at 3.30 after school and that's why she thought she had to signal on those but not the morning lessons. I promise you I haven't made this up. (you couldn't, could you)

And before any bright sparks say it was my fault. I have never had anyone else think like this before that or after. big_smile

Re: What has surprised you the most about your pupils ?

Driving along a one way street which changes to a two way street. NO ENTRY is written on the road for the benefit of  oncoming vehicles who have to turn to their left.

Just before we got to the (upside down)  NO ENTRY road marking, we pulled up and stopped. “Why have we stopped” I asked, “It says no entry” was the reply.

Funny how many don’t see it, and the two no entry signs when they are facing them, but this guy spotted it and responded to it, even though it was upside down!

Re: What has surprised you the most about your pupils ?

To save her blushes I said it was my fault as I couldn't have explained it well enough. Even after another long explanation she still look puzzled. The same pupil gave me nightmares with steering. Every time I gave her an instruction she looked straight at me for a couple of seconds, meanwhile the car had veered left about 3 feet. Not good if you are only 2 foot from the kerb at the time.  big_smile

Re: What has surprised you the most about your pupils ?

I was expecting her to have a giggle when she realised what she had done. But no, I really don't think it sunk in, even by the end of the lesson. Funnily enough a couple of weeks later she cancelled her lesson and I never saw her again. Probably thought I was a rubbish instructor because I said you could signal in the morning and the afternoon.  big_smile

How come they don't realise it's raining? They know how to put the wipers on but don't until prompted!
I had one girl who refused to open the bonnet to learn show me tell me in case she broke her nails. When I asked her what she would say to examiner when asked to lift bonnet. She replied I don't do that I will ask a man to do it for me!

Re: What has surprised you the most about your pupils ?

I recall one of my pupils slowing down on the approach to traffic lights ( green ).

With a truck behind us I did not stop to smell the roses and just said. OFF BRAKE! GO!.

Afterwards a little Q&A, I discovered they read the ' KEEP CLEAR ' markings on the road and got confused by how they could keep it clear without going through the markings. :? :? :?

There's a  roundabout in Wallington where one exit is a no entry coming the other way, had loads of pupils read the no entry upside down and want to stop when going into the road  roll

I can understand how some of the things learners can do is quite comical as that what we are teaching them is easy. but for them to learn how to drive is like a 5 year old riding a bike for the first time. it second nature for qualified drivers and still some of them cant drive properly..My friend of 30 didnt even know what a camber  was... big_smile

Re: What has surprised you the most about your pupils ?

From when this thread was created what is noticeable is the decline in natural drivers, the increase in pupils with poor co-ordination, a decrease in basic knowledge and a diminishing maturity, also an increase in pupils who find it hard to follow very simple instructions.

Re: What has surprised you the most about your pupils ?

Down here, the road surface cracking badly due to months of dry heat followed by months of heavy rain is a big problem for maintenance crews who spray tar into the cracks to reseal the surface.
The result looks like crazy paving.
My colleague's student, an adult lady, complained bitterly about the "stupid black road lines" and how was she expected to make any sense of them and follow them?
She is a family law court judge, BTW.

Funny I had a girl ask the same yesterday, probably for the same reason.

Re: What has surprised you the most about your pupils ?

Had a Chinese guy ring for lessons. Booked and when I met him asked to see his licence. Stony faced he said, "That's why I want you to teach me so I can get one!". Eventually explained the provisional requirement and waited a week or so for it to arrive and then off we went. Passed first time. Quite a surly guy though. When he passed he said, "Why can't I drive home? Examiner just passed me so fit to drive!" and promptly got into the driver's sear. We made it home alright but these Chinese can be very forthright!
