First Pupil Nerves

Well I took my Nephew down to the Local graveyard carpark for his first ever lesson(and mine).Collected him from house and started putting everything into action,showing him steering and getting him to watch how I change gear(didn't go into anything in too great of detail).
Got to site and done safety drill,talk on foot and hand controls,then Recap.The next bit I really enjoyed and so did he,Moving off and stopping.The fella has never sat in the drivers seat of a car and I can't tell you how great it felt that after half an hour or so I had him moving away and also using Push/Pull ,we must have went round 25 times the empty car park,which is great as it has the layout of public roads,left turns on give way lines.
I must admit I did muddle through a little but soon got my confidence back and took control.I can see now the reward that ADI s get is not just financial,he told me at the end of the lesson he was buzzing and he didn't think he'd have what it takes,I will admit to myself I have felt the same in the last few months but no more,I am totally convinced that this is the career for me,absolute buzz when I got him using the clutch control correctly and steering pretty darn well for a beginner.
So even though I am not qualified yet(30 hours into Pt3) I think this a good set up,he gets free lessons and I get invaluable experience teaching what I have been taught..any views anybody???

Re: First Pupil Nerves

Hi mon.

I've been doing this for a while now, but still get the same buzz out of the early lessons as I ever did, I love it when you see them go from complete novices scared of their own shadow, to confident drivers, with the satisfaction of knowing it was you who took them there.

Well done and keep enjoying the job, the rewards are more than financial, which is a good job really  big_smile


Part 1 Passed April 07

Part 2 Passed June 07 3 Minors

Part 3 Delayed Success 05/12/07    3-3
