Re: 1st Check test

Hi Jeanie

I qualified the same time as you oct last year, and have my first check test the end of this month. I got just over a months notice so at least you get a fair bit of time to organise which pupil to take, not sure if thats the norm though?

Re: 1st Check test

I qualified Apr 2004, and have just been notified about my check test next month - not sure if I'm dreading it or looking forward to getting it out of the way :!:

Re: 1st Check test

I had mine within six moths of qualifying. I guess it just depends on area and SE availability.

Re: 1st Check test

Yeah during your check test remember no smacking the pupils on the back of the head saying "Hey stupid if I've told you once, I've told you million times don't do that AGAIN".  lol

The above info is free of charge from the goodness of my heart. Who knows one day I may even write a book.
THINGS WOT NOT TO DO ON YER CHECK TEST.

And remember all the bull you tell your pupils about overcoming pretest nerves. See if it works.  wink

Re: 1st Check test

friend of mine has his first check test in Oct - he only qualified abut 4 mts ago & is paranoid D.S.A is on to him because he appealed to have his pink badge extended & most other instructors local to us have waited 2 yrs for first check test  lol

Myself, I qualified Sept 01 & had my first check test Mar 02 - 6 mts  :!:

just curious now as what grades peeps got & what subject they covered for first check test  :?:
I got a 5 & covered rev park which i was quite happy with  big_smile

Re: 1st Check test

well it's all over with now  :shock:  wot a relief  big_smile

i took a pup that i knew that i had to work real hard with, and we worked on roundabouts bless her, its true wot they all say u do forget the the guy is in the back once you crack on yikes .

but glad to say that it is all over with, must admit may not be as good as some of other adi's out there but i quite pleased with my grade, thought that i would get an E and expected another one in 6 months, but got a 4 not bad for the 1st check test, but loads of room to improve. mind u the se made me laugh and said that the pup has not got 1 natural driving bone in her bod lol (awww bless her).

So will start again and get my grades up for next time any tips!

Re: 1st Check test

Well Done, Enjoy it and learn. Lot's of Grade 4 ADI's out there, some will improve to 5 and above, too many will settle for a 4, you will be amazed at the quality of teaching when you get pupils with plenty of hours under their belt and who  know absolutely nothing  about "Driving skills". 

Stay patient, reliable and you will progress.
