Second Check test - Fleet

There was some interesting info that the SEADI gave me about Fleet check tests so this post is also in the Fleet thread. It wasn't really a "check test" as such. Viv, the examiner, had travelled up from Swansea to Bletchley to do CTs & PT3s for two weeks, so sitting in a car with a fellow Welshman was a nice for him (probably me too as I got a 5).

It was very informal and relaxed, company car driver (obviously) been driving about 15 years, mainly motorways but also A roads & countryside. Up and down the country on business. (when we go in the car I was about to do my in car presentation when he told me "You don't have to. You can just pretend you did it at the offices yeaterday or it's based on a previous assessment you're following up or do the presentation.") I did it anyway, waste some more time (we had to wait for lots of learners to leave first), his mirrors were great, observation at junctions perfect which I tought would be the obvious ones but, he kept driving below (yes below) the speed limit and disrgarding road signs for speed, miniroundabouts etc in town. We then went out onto the "grid system" (if you know Milton keynes at all it's a grid of roundabouts linked by mainly national speed limit roads) and again he was driving well below the speed limit and second guessing the speeds, when dealing with the roundabouts he constantly cancelled his signals early.

Pulled over after about 15 minutes, Q&A on what he was looking for in the road, so much to look for he was missing signs etc. talked about scanning the road to pick up roadsigns, knowing what's in the road ahead early and plan for it. This would also allow him to see speed limit signs and adjust his speed accordingly, maintaining progress with traffic flow, cancelling the signals early, atleast he was using them but he could cancel upon leaving the roundabout but had to ensure he cancelled them.
Coached him on these as we headed back to the test centre, had to take a detour due to all the learners returning but in all was probably out for 40 minutes. The only thing he said I hadn't done well enough was during my debrief I didn't put the problems we'd discussed into a "risk" order. Afterall it's a risk assessment. He also told me they don't expect you to drive on every road type or have your client do a commentary drive, which I wasn't told in my training.
