My Standards Check
19 September 2019
My last standards check was in September 2019. I got an A... Again.
Big Thanks to Tori who was my learner driver for the test. And she passed first time in November 2019. The standards check is a great reminder to instructors how our customers feel on test day. For Instructors, we get 3 attempts to pass and if we dont, we have to re-train and take all our tests again. A grade A is not a measure of how good an instructor is, it is how well they performed on the day. Find out more about the test here.
