Standards check videos

My standards check videos can help you to pass your standards check with ease.

The video boxes below each have a menu button at the top right. Click it to choose the video you want as each box contains several videos.

If you have any specific questions about becoming a driving instructor that are not covered here then see my ask an instructor page to send me questions.

Standards check marking sheet

In this 57 minute long video we’ll take a look at exactly how the standards check is marked using the SC1 marking sheet. I explain every single box on the marking sheet in great detail, telling you exactly what you should be doing and how your examiner will be marking you.

Mock standards check videos

Here you can watch driving instructors doing mock standards checks with me. I really want to get more of these filmed so please email me if you’re a driving instructor and want to film mock standards checks! Contact me today to film a free standards check video.

How to pass your standards check

In this epic 3 hour and 15 minute video we’ll take a look at the official DVSA issued examiners marking guide to the standards check – ADI1. This document contains vital information and many driving instructors don’t even know it exists! It tells you exactly what your examiner wants to see, how to plan your lesson and the skills you must demonstrate to pass.

Make yourself a drink and get comfy because this is the longest video I have ever made. I split the video into 5 sections and when you stop watching,  your computer should remember where you were.

Paul’s standards check diary

This series of 23 videos lets you watch my journey from the day I first got my standards check letter to moments after taking it. You’ll see how I prepared my lesson and the things I learnt along the way. Two disastrous events happen just before my standards check and nearly ruin everything!

There is around 1 hour and 54 minutes of video in this series. See what it’s like to experience the run up to a standards check and how to best prepare for yours.

Lucy’s lessons

This 42 hour series of videos shows me teaching a pupil to drive from start to finish. Each lesson is done at the standard required to pass a standards check.

You can watch these to help give you ideas of what to teach for your standards check. There’s even a motorway lesson included during which something very unusual happens with variable speed limits.

Each lesson is filmed with multiple camera angles focusing on the pedals, car interior and front/rear windscreens. You’ll be able to watch these videos as though you were teaching. Can you spot all the mistakes and teaching points? Can you spot things I didn’t?

You’ll see me using the latest teaching methods such as client based learning and coaching skills. Learn how an expert driver trainer uses techniques to not just teach a pupil but to develop their ability to gain independence for a lifetime of safe driving.

Whether you’re a learner driver looking for help leading up to your test or a driving instructor wanting to see the standard of teaching required to pass a standards check, this series has it all.

It’s like getting an entire course of driving lessons without even having to leave your home!
