Have you decided todays lesson is on dual carriageways - but on approach to roundabouts, the pupil keeps asking is that left lane or right?

So therefore the lesson today should have been on choosing the correct lane on approach to roundabouts.

ADI Standards Check - Risk Management

Risk management

Another area instructors commonly fail on is not giving pupils enough feedback on any potentially dangerous situations.

As well as providing your pupil with timely and appropriate feedback, it’s important that if they make any serious or dangerous faults they know what they’ve done and why it’s dangerous.

The risk management is so important that all the other competencies on the marking sheet equals 35 points - with 31 being a pass

Yet if you get 7 or less on this section, its an automatic fail!

It’s up to you to make sure they understand this, so they don’t make the same mistake again.



Standards Check Marking Sheet - Teaching and Learning Strategies

Teaching and learning strategies

You need to be able to show you can teach your pupil in a style that’s suited for them. This means using methods that work best for them.

For example, when giving verbal directions, your pupil might find it easier if you referred to left and right as ‘my side’ or ‘your side’.

It’s important you give your pupil appropriate and timely feedback rather than giving it all at the end of the lesson.

Having regular discussions throughout the lesson helps your pupil understand what they might have done wrong.

You should encourage your pupil to analyse problems and take responsibility for their own learning.

For example, if your pupil forgot to check their blind spot before pulling out, you might:

  • ask them if they know what they did wrong
  • explain why they need to make sure they check their blind spots next time
