Instructors on mobiles when teaching

Should instructors use mobiles when instructing, even on loudspeaker or hands free ?  I can't see how they can be 100% aware of what their pupil is doing if they take calls

Re: Instructors on mobiles when teaching

No of course they shouldn't! How can they be in control of the lesson whilst taking a phone call?  I have seen newspapers being read, cigarettes being smoked, and phones calls taken whilst "teaching".  But on the positive side those of us that don't do that get the business off them for providing the right customer service and will get the recommendations in months and years to come to help us build our business smile

Re: Instructors on mobiles when teaching

Well it seems of course to me, but when I learnt they had not been invented & times change smile So no how never ? Would you ditch your kid's instructor if you found out they took calls during the lesson ?

Re: Instructors on mobiles when teaching

What exactly do you mean by "took calls during the lesson"? If the instructor has got his client to pull up at the side of the road and switch the engine off before answering its hardly illegal but not very professional. If it was on the move its both illegal and most unprofessional.

I'd be changing instructor if it was the latter.

Re: Instructors on mobiles when teaching

I believe whilst driving. Even if it was pulling over, it would be cutting into the time paid for. I'll be trialling another instructor then sad It is expensive enough as it is without wasting money ! (not that I don't think the price is reasonable instructors have to live, but it is still expensive)

As a matter of interest , I also supervise  on my licence in my kid's car, (the reason I found out about the calls when they said it's nice you are concentrating on me !) so they are getting one plus hours a day, just in that car, would you expect this to cut down on the hours of instructor time needed & would you suggest taking the test it their own car or an instructors ? If we change it is yet another car to get used to , not that that is a bad thing, after all once you start driving alone  it is a whole new car. My eldest jumped straight into an escort van after his test & much to my horror now I was sent to pick my sister up with a horse trailer the afternoon I pased mine !

Re: Instructors on mobiles when teaching

mobiles NO. expensive NO
a brand new car cost £11000. thats £230 per month it costs the business, to buy, not on credit

1st we have to buy the car, then when we have bought that we have to save like mad to buy another in 2 years after this one is out of life. so we have an 11k car and now have to save like mad to get another.
petrol has doubled, so sat in an 11 k car £5 of petrol, wear and tear, tax insurance, advertisements, and at the end we get about £8 an hour, yes we have a new car. and we are our own boss, and I would'nt give it up for the world
driving instructors are like nurses, we do it because we enjoy it, certainly not for the money. I do think today we should charge more, but people will revolt, and sadly we have people doing lessons for £99 for 10 hours.
its like importations, it spoils it, we always opt for the cheaper version, then moan when the wheels fall off, and then
we have to pay for a better version, so buying the cheap one did not serve its purpose.

Re: Instructors on mobiles when teaching

I did actually say that I still thought it was worth the cost. But never the less it is still expensive to pay for, because like instructor parents (or kids) pay out of taxed income and £100 plus per month has to be found from something else, few people just have that spare, to me it is an investment in my kids future. I don't resent the cost IF the instructor does the job he/she is paid to do. For the record I'm paying £23 /hr which is pretty middle of the road here, if I was paying peanuts (£99/10 lessons) I'd be less surprised to get a monkey !

So NO I rarely opt for the cheap version, I prefer quality meat, quality good whatever, but I will complain if I pay for quality and don't get it !

I have seen somewhere on the internet where a supervising driver on the phone got a FPN for it
