Preparing for your driving test- using driver's record

Learner driver must take the training from the professional, about 45 hours of professional training combined with 22 hours of private training. These will not only help in passing driving test but it will also help you in future. You can use driver's record to plan your learning.

Driver's record -

Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has produced a Driver's Record to help the learner driver's in an ordered and in a precise manner.
A learner driver receives a Driver's Record along with their provisional driving licence . Driver's Record supervises learner driver's progress. Driverís record can be obtained from driving instructor or from the local driving test centre.

Before learner drivers starts driving, they need to learn the skill and then implement or apply to get the experience and for this they need to learn both theory and practical driving at the same time.
Learner should carry a driving record which is pocket-sized booklet while learning driving lessons .

Structured learning -

The Driver's Record keeps a record of progress when learner drivers learn to drive. This record is kept with your driving instructor which helps learner drivers in their way. The Driver's Record contains a list of 24 key skills which is covered in the practical driving test. There is a separate space which has to fill in as their progress through the five levels shown on the record by their instructor. Driving instructor should initial and dated the level one to four, and full details added when you reach level five. Learner and instructor both will able to see which skill the learner driver needs to improve and where is the door of improvement.

What are the five levels?

The meaning of each level is:
  • the skill is introduced
  • it can be carried out under full instruction
  • it can be carried out correctly when prompted
  • it seldom needs to be prompted
  • you can carry it out consistently without any prompting

The Driver's Record also helps to remind where learners need to improve, how to improve and how far you will improve.

Practising your driving skills-

In simple words whatever you have learned in driving lesson, structured learning is implementation of all those. Learners should get along with the instructor and the individual who will be guiding them to practise and examine what learners should practise.
To get a varied driving experience, you should try to practice
  • on as many types of road as you can
  • on all sorts of traffic and weather conditions, even in the dark
  • on dual carriageways where the national speed limit applies -you may be asked to drive on this type of road during the test.
  • You should try to keep a record of your practice using the driver's record.
  • This will help you to identify your weaker areas in driving.
You should also record any concerns you may have about your driving and then discuss these with your instructor.
