Re: driver record

Hiya Sal,
Speak to your instructor and ask them to fill it in  smile
Your instructor should keep their own records so they can monitor your progress & keep a record of topics covered.
I always fill in my pupils own record too so they can refer back to it and see their progress for themselves, i dont use the driver record supplied with the provisional, i supply my own which is more detailed.

Re: driver record

You don't have to show any kind of logbook or record at the moment.

If your instructor isn't filling a track record of some description in then they're not really working to best practice.

Is there a reason you haven't asked your instructor this question?

Re: driver record

I have a similar case with a couple of pupils, more-less what you've just said about keeping records..

I like the dsa's record (Drivers Record), fill in what is covered and I highlight what to do on the next lesson..

However the one that the pupil gets when they get their provoisnal through (Pupil record), I think is a bit limited, however for some (not all) it's quite usefull..

I wouldn't worry too much if your instructor hasn't filled it out, he must have a lot of confidence in you if he's trying to get you to book your test.

Not all my students have records, and after approx 15 hours they tend to become a bit useless.

However like timman & binty said, it is best practice to have some kind of record so you know what you've covered and what needs to be covered in your next lesson.

Re: driver record

well thank you for the info,  also what i would like to know is this.  my partner is disabled and so he uses hand controls in our car which is a mazda 3 1600 automatic which i am driving in with mt instructor.
it was his idea to do so as i will only be driving our car to help my partner out when we go on long drives away to visit my children.
and i found it a strugle to find a automatic car that i found nice to drive as i did start out using the instructors car what was a corsa/manual but was not happy so he suggested using my partners /after all thats what i will be driving when i do pass my test
what i worry about though ( my instructor said not to worry ) is that turning up for my test in a 1600 automatic will be frowned upon ? even though i use it with my instructor .....what do you think ?
as i said earlier it has hand controls and a steering ball on the wheel what i dont use i ust drive it as a able bodied person would  but it seemes pointless to me trying to learn in a smaller car as we go camping a lot so need a bigger engine .
do you think i am worrying about nothing ....i am no spring chicken ha ha i am 48 so what do you think

Re: driver record

There's no problem turning up in a 1600 auto - why should they frown on it?

You'll be restricted to driving an auto (not a problem for most people), but I would suggest you have a chat with the examiners about the extra controls which you have fitted. There may be an issue with having them fitted, which could restrict you to only driving other cars with the controls fitted.

If you start a new thread about cars with disability controls on test, one of the specialist instructors will know the answers on that one. It won't be insurmountable by any means, so enjoy your driving and your lessons.

Re: driver record

Assuming you have no disablities..

Mazda 1600 (assuming 1600 is the engine size) is not a problem, as long its a catagory B vehicle you should be ok, examiners won't frown on the vehicle, the only thing I would say its a day or two before the test give it a little Spring clean, impressions do last ;-)

The adapations will be set for the disablility of the driver, and will depend on the type of controlls if its acceptable for "normal" use, but please do check with your instructor, he should be able to give you the correct advice, if not he will know a man that will !

Re: driver record

big_smile well thanxs for your swift reply...my instructor has not said anything about the hand controls so i presume everthing is ok as nothing gets in my way, what i may do is tape the indicator switch on the hand controls so i have no chance of catching it and turning it on by mistake.
and i will take your advice and get it really clean for the day

No you don't have to have a record of achievement, but its nice to see where you are and the reason we use them is to avoid situations like this. You really should have a progress record marked every lesson, then when you come to booking your test you are able to do it in agreement with your instructor. Afterall when you are learning subjects in school or College you usually have some sort of hard copy to see where you are on the course and what you have left to cover. Seems quite reasonable for someone paying for lessons to have some sort of record. Ev

Re: driver record

From what I can read, it sounds like its a 50/50
He wants you to go for it, but you dont feel ready..
and at the same time
He wants you to pass before they close down, but you want to make sure you pass 1st time.
Its a difficult decision to make, I get this a few times.
What i'd do if i was in your shoes is at least book it, at very worst you can move the date or get your money back, 2-3 weeks before insist your instructor doing a mock test.
Then make your decision.

Meanwhile get him to print out a record and mark your progress.
Or even better
Print it out yourself:
http://www.dsa.gov.uk/Documents/leaflet … ructor.pdf
print all the pages out, its what I use, and find it very easy and usefull

Keep us updated

Re: driver record

well he said we will do a mock test in the next week or 2 see how we go so that may help but i think i may do what you say and put in for it anyway and if i fail well just put in for it again making lots of practice on where i went wrong if that be it

Re: driver record

I see people are saying on here about having a drivers record marked at the end of every lesson.
If you use the DSA own drivers record there are only 5 boxes to use. You will need more than 5 lessons so that ones a waste of time.

I use a a4 sheet of plain paper to write down what a pupil has done on a lesson and to write down what they will do next.

Re: driver record

I use my own drivers records which I had printed professionally, also give pupils lessons plans so that they have something to study for the next lesson. This also helps those who are having private practice, so that those accompanying them can see what has been done.

Also have a record myself of what has been done what has to be done, and where the weak areas are. I would find if very difficult to work without some sort of structure to my lessons, just how I work I guess, every one is different. Ev

It's not useless if used in the manner it was designed for.  Not saying it's the right or wrong way to record progress, we all have our own preferences.
