What happens at the standards check
A Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) examiner will watch you giving a client-centred driving lesson to one of your pupils for about 45 minutes.
At the start of the lesson, discuss the goals for the lesson and risk management with your pupil. This should take no more than 3 minutes.
Your pupil must drive for at least 40 minutes of the lesson.
You cannot spend the whole lesson teaching a manoeuvre, but you can include a short recap of one you’ve taught in a previous lesson.
At the end of the lesson, you should give your pupil about 3 minutes to reflect on their performance.
The examiner will look for evidence that you meet the national standards for driver and rider training.
