Re: check test upcoming

Take her for a lesson before the test and find out what she needs to improve.
Every thing I have read about a check test has said not to do a general drive.
You need to teach something based on the last lesson you had with the pupil.

Re: check test upcoming

Have to agree with last post, a consolidation type lesson is not right for a C/T although it is what you would do in the real world.
The EX is looking for a lesson aim, so that he/she can see that you have achieved what you set out to do.
Find a weakness on a pre C/T lesson and use it as your subject.

Failing that, you could always do role play.

Good Luck.

Re: check test upcoming

I would think as long as you split the lesson into sections it wouldn't prove a problem for a CT.
Start with questions about her thoughts on her skills.  Any particular worries, concerns or know weaknesses?  Any particular strengths, things she enjoyed, would like to start back with.  Anything to avoid today?
From all that find a couple of aims and agree them with her.
Then go do a short 10 mins drive to appropriate area, assessing the picture as you go.  Does it match what she's told you ie. your assessment of her skills and what she said.  Any glaring omissions in practice?
Get to the 'start' and feedback on drive so far.  Confirm aims and objectives or discuss and evolve new one(s) based on assessment.
(Keep It Simple!)
Get to work on whatever it is.  Standard stuff on the infamous Core Comps etc.
End up back at base for good debrief.
So, we've assessed where you are - how was it getting back behind the wheel? Better than expected? (hopefully!)
So, we identified x,y,z and we worked on a and b while we were out.  You seemed to get a and b sorted but maybe still a bit more b would be good.  So, that leaves us with the other items to move onto.  etc etc.

Not necessarily an entirely easy lesson to manage for a CT but, hell's teeth, if you did all that well surely an Ex would be damned impressed!
Probably hard to get a 6 but who cares about the grade!  tongue

As long as you're confident about your ability to handle a slightly unknown situation, and to dig some nuggets out of a pile of stuff, then go for it.  Just make sure you follow some structure and verbalise your thinking so the Ex knows what's happening, otherwise the novelty will confuse them.    roll

Re: check test upcoming

What happens if she performs faultlessly on the 10 min assessment, where do you go from there. You may say it's unlikely, but it's possible. I think its risky for a check test, I would do the assessment a few days before, because 10 mins does not always reveal problems, whereas 45 min is more likely to show up weaknesses.

Re: check test upcoming

Tell her to get her test booked!
Do a mock.
Do a Show & Tell lesson!
Send her home with a a 50% refund!
Lots of options in the very unlikely event she's perfect.  tongue

Ex can see that you do know what 'good' is, and you're not ripping off clients with unnecessary lessons. Client's confidence given big boost, and goes off to book test happy in the knowledge she's ready.
Sounds like a damn fine 'lesson' to me and the Ex has witnessed someone demonstrating their competence and professionalism - so a big 'win' all round.

Job done.   cool

Assess on the way to the test and deliver the training accordingly - if you are concerned try and get some training before test day. smile
