Your Car or Trainers Car....

for your Part 2 test...

I am able to use my trainers car for the test, but as its s Diesel it is extremely low geared compared to my car, for instance in my car would be happy in 3 gear going 20mph, but in my trainers car it likes to be in 1st up to 10mph, 2nd up to 20/25 3rd for 30 and so on, i have juggered it a few times. When i drive my car straight afer my trainers, my car is so light and smooth and quiet. I feel confident doing manuovers in my Trainers car but not so confident actually driving it.. I am thinking of therefore using my car for the Part 2 test..What have you guys done?

Re: Your Car or Trainers Car....

Most will use their own car for training sessions and the test. The main benefit is that you already know your car and will be using it on a daily basis so should be relatively comfortable with it.

Re: Your Car or Trainers Car....

Beware, there is also an insurance issue using your own car, it almost certainly will not be insured for the purposes of a TEST. This is a common problem,  you need to call your insurance company and ensure you are covered for this event. If they say no, contact waverney insurance and they can arrange a day cover specially for this. I would also always suggest you use your trainers car, both for training and test, your trainer will almost certainly NOT be covered training in your vehicle either.

Which only becomes a problem if when the trainer drives, which is unlikely unless a demo is necessary.

Re: Your Car or Trainers Car....

Ah, the point is, the TRAINER is not insured in the trainees car when giving paid instruction.

this is the point I was trying to make.

Same on fleet you need to be sure you are covered for the purpose of giving instruction in the vehicle you are using.

Is not insured to drive it?  What else does he need to be insured for?  Personally I have Public Liability & Professional Indemnity from the DIA which isn't car specific.  So I would only need to be insured in the client's car if I were to drive it.

Re: Your Car or Trainers Car....

Yes I know nigel and thats ok for your point of view if the guy trys to sue you, but the use of a vehicle for test and tuition is a different thing, I will try to find out facts cos I am blowing in the wind a bit here, will post again with specifics!

Re: Your Car or Trainers Car....

Insurance companies often exclude 'testing' in their policies.  I think, historically, that wasn't intended to exclude standard driving tests, though they did get included and a simple phone call can be all that is required to sort that one with regard to the standard L test or part 2.  Specific insurance may be required for part 3 though.

To give tuition in a client's car, what is the extra insurance needed for?  I agree it is needed if you wish to drive the car to give a demo (and I agree a demo can have huge benefits), but if you don't why does the client (or you) need any extra insurance?

Re: Your Car or Trainers Car....

Most insurers exclude 'on test' for the simple reason that learners are NOT under supervsion on test. You are not a learner!

Waveney is who I did my part 2 and part 3 insurance through. ONLY stipulation with them was that within 30 days I had to fit duals, which I did anyway. That may have changed now, but I really have found Waveney exceptionally obliging and will be renewing again with them this year.

OK, in 29 years of driving I have never had an accident so I have no idea if any of them are actually any good, hope I never need to find out, but as far as customer help and relations, Waveney have been good.

I would only use my car for part 2 as others have said.

Re: Your Car or Trainers Car....

Thanks Guy's for your advice. I shall call my own insurance to see if i'm covered for the part 2 test and if i'm not i'll call the recommendations you have suggested.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PART ONE AND GOOD LUCK FOR PART 2

I haven't actually passed part 1 yet, my Part 1 test is on Wednesday. I'm very excited about it. My part 2 training is going well, my instructer said as soon as i pass my test on Wednesday (hopefully) i should book my part 2 staright away, as i've only been driving for 5 years, i dont have to many bad habits smile.
