Standards check lesson plan

Your standards check lesson plan is an essential element of your test. If you teach the wrong thing then the whole lesson can fall apart and result in a failed standards check. It’s easier than you might think to choose the subject that you’ll be teaching – the DVSA will tell you!

The DVSA have produced a help guide for driving instructors called AD1. You can download ADI1 by clicking here. In section 4.25 of this document you’ll see how examiners put pupils¬†into one of four categories. All you need to do is identify which category of pupil you are taking then the DVSA give you a step by step guide to what they expect to see you teaching that pupil. It’s easy!

My video below explains this in more detail and if you want more help then you can see hours more standards check videos on my website.

 

Remember the purpose of a driving lesson

The most important part of any driving lesson is that the pupil learns something. They should be able to do something at the end of the lesson that they couldn’t do at the start. If not they should at least have a better understanding of the topic or skill that you are teaching.

You can check whether your lesson plan is effective by questioning the pupil throughout the driving lesson. Ask them how they feel about what they are learning and if there’s anything you can be doing to help them.

A common mistake made by many instructors is to wait until the end of the lesson and THEN ask the pupil how it’s going. It’s too late to ask when the lesson is over and you have no chance to do anything about it. A good lessons plan will constantly evolve and adapt to meet the pupils needs.
