How We Can Help Standards Check (SC) Preparation
Standards Check (SC) preparation because In April 2014. DVSA implemented a new assessment of ADIs to check their ability to give instruction. The Check Test, which had been around for 25 years, was replaced by the Standards Check. The criteria by which instructors were to be assessed would be aligned closely with the National Standards for Driver and Rider Training (NSDRT). Role 6 of the National Standards explains the knowledge, skills and understanding that ADIs and their Trainers must demonstrate to be effective in their role.
In December 2017, the final qualifying test for potential instructors (Part Three) was also aligned with the Standards Check and the same assessment criteria would now be used industry-wide.
Support & Preparation
For PDIs & ADIs
Standards Check Preparation is vital to keep up to-date with what is going on.
We provide training to help instructors prepare for their Standards Check in five ways:
A One-to-one, in-car training. Usually, a review of the instructor’s previous SC is followed by a discussion on the plan for the upcoming SC. A mixture of role-play training and demonstration on-the-move allows for an assessment of your teaching ability and written feedback.
So by watching the instructor deliver a one-hour driving lesson to a student driver is followed by feedback on performance and recommendations going forward
A cost-effective way of learning, not just from me but from other ADIs, is to attend a one-day, Standards Check group training event in North Yorkshire. A morning of theory and roleplay exercises is followed by an afternoon in-car putting the theory into practice. (See Events)
I also travel by prior arrangement to deliver one-day Standards Check training days for large groups and associations
Last, but not least, for those who cannot travel and would benefit from a client-centred lesson presenter that is aligned to Standards Check requirements, take a look at the Complete ADI Teaching System for the Standards Check (see Shop)
