Re: On pink now,nervous times

Waveneys are a very reputable insurance company, and very competetive, so you can't go far wrong with them.
Good luck for tomorrow, that is if the weather is not against you, but I do have one question : How do you know your lad tomorrow is at test standard, you only have an hour before the test to assess his capablities?
Don't feel pressurised by your trainer to take candidates to test if YOU don't think they are ready, don't be afraid to say "No!"

I would echo exactly what Vanda has said.

Don't forget that the SE at your test centre will be monitoring the standard of candidates that you present for tests. It may well be that your trainer has given you a pupil who is suitable, so I wouldn't worry too much. But worth bearing in mind for the future.

We are all here to help so please let us know how you get on. There can't be many problems you will encounter that at least one of us hasn't dealt with!

Good luck...

They don't need to sign the licence, not anymore  wink
Hey, learn from this experience, I did.  Always ask to see the appointment letter as soon as you can,  that way you have double checked time/date/location, alternatively, check online, you should have the info to hand to be able to check on their behalf.  wink(You will need driving licence number, application reference number/theory test pass cert number, 2 out of 3 are required)

Re: On pink now,nervous times

Do you meen the lad forgot what time his test was at? Or that you miss calculated how long it would take to get to the test centre from his house?
I always ask for all there docs as soon as I pick them up for test and have a quick check through them. Put them in glove box after that so they can't get lost between house and test centre! smile
If the lad was daft enough to forget what time his test was at there is no way I'd offer to take him free next time (and I also hope you were paid today)!

Re: On pink now,nervous times

Hi Faz
A little bit of advice i was given when i was a PDI was;never accept a pupil for test if YOU havn't assessed him first.
This was given to me as the EX was walking back. yikes
