Planning and recording how you learn to drive
The driver's record will help you to structure the way you learn to drive. Those who pass their driving test have had, on average, about 47 hours of professional training combined with 20 hours of private practice.
The driverís record
The driverís record is a way of helping both you and your driving instructor to:
identify areas where you need to develop your skills and understanding
keep a record of your progress while you learn to drive
a list of 24 key skills covered in the practical driving test
space for your instructor to fill in as you progress through the five levels shown on the record
You need to:
learn the skill and then practise to get the experience learn and develop the theory and practical driving at the same time What are the five levels?
The meaning of each level is:
level one - the skill is introduced
level two - it can be carried out under full instruction
level three - it can be carried out correctly when prompted
level four - it rarely needs to be prompted
level five - you can carry it out all the time without any prompting
Levels one to four should be initialled and dated by your instructor, and full details added when you reach level five.
The driver's record will help to remind you what you're trying to achieve, how to get there and how far you've got.
Practising your driving skills
Itís important to practise what youíve learned during your lessons. Get together with your instructor and the person who will be helping you to practise and discuss what you need to do.
Try to practise:
on as many types of road as you can
in 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 your test
Keep a record of any practice you do on different types of road and during different conditions between lessons. This will help you to remember how much practice youíve had in the different conditions.
You should also record any worries you may have about your driving and then discuss these with your instructor.
