Re: Sacked my driving instructer

Well done on getting rid tho the getting petrol in your lesson is what a few ADIs occasionally do. My 1st one did but let me fill up each time 2nd one did but didn't get me to do it til about 3rd time.

Re: Sacked my driving instructer

thats not really on. good for u for getting shut!  big_smile theres plently who will give their all and avoid visiting the petrol station although once isnt a bad idea? try the instructors index on here and see who may be near you? then chat and see who "floats your boat" - lots of good instructors about so dont settle for any less - good luck

Re: Sacked my driving instructer

I try to give all of my students at least one go at refuelling because there is more to know about it than you might first think, and it can be a dangerous exercise if certain safety tips are not heeded.

Despite it being part of my normal teaching, I ask my student first, and add extra time to the lesson to cover the refuelling time. I make sure I never run the car close to empty, one of the reasons is so that a lesson can go on if a student doesn't want to refuel.

Refuelling during a lesson the way your instructor did is simply not on!

We have a lot of dodgy ADIs in my area (Darwin, NT Australia) known as "cowboys" and occasionally I get one of their ex-students who are fed up with short lessons, sitting in a car while the instructor shops or attends to other business, spending part of a lesson dropping off the previous student even if it means going to an area unsuitable for training, being yelled at for not correctly doing something they haven't been shown how to do - the list goes on and on.

Sadly though, a lot of learners put up with this treatment because they assume it is how professional driver training is normally conducted.

Re: Sacked my driving instructer

Good for you, I'm going to go through instructors like mothers go through prospective suitors for their children, I'm gonna keep on till I find someone good enough for me...lol

Seriously though stopping off for petrol seems a bit much, mine drove to his house on a couple of occasions so he could collect something/drop something off and on more than one time I was like errand boy driving him to the cash point "Just pull up here I need to quickly get some money out" and he'd often also scare the hell out of me by reaching over and tooting the horn on a busy road just so he could wave at someone who he knew passing by.

Re: Sacked my driving instructer

...reaching over and tooting the horn on a busy road just so he could wave at someone who he knew passing by...

Doesn't sound professional to me! warning devices are not for saying 'hello'.

I once had to share a house with 4 other men in a remote mining community, we all worked for the same huge training company. I was the only one doing cars/trucks and I also had the power to train & certify new driving instructors. The other trainers did earthmoving equipment & building construction.

Every evening after work we drove to the mining mess for a meal, I took them in my training car.
One of them was pestering me to "give him a bit of training (10 seconds, say) and issue his instructor's certificate".

He was a real pain, he insisted on sitting in the front passenger's seat, leaning across and tooting or shouting suggestive things to young ladies (we were in a liveried car and some of them were my pupils!!), or suddenly pulling the handbrake on while we were moving in traffic.

I refused to let him become a driving instructor, saying he was so childish and irresponsible I didn't think he should even have an ordinary licence let alone being allowed to teach.
Of course he got bitter & twisted over this to the point I had to move out of the house into single person quarters (aaaahh the bliss!).

As you can see we do things  differently down here and a lot of instructors get through the system and become a danger to road users.

From reading this forum the last few years i can see that the UK puts much more effort into training, certifying and monitoring ADIs (ours are not monitored at all, not in the NT anyway), but it looks like Miss Daisy & BroomBroom managed to get one who slipped through the system.
