This Website develops the idea of “Safe Driving for Life” With the use of Training Note Course and Blogs

Learning to Drive

Since the beginning of the new millennium, I have been looking at changing and developing my methods of training when teaching my students to Learn Safe Driving for Life. After studying as an assessor coach and mentor I developed a training matrix and a set of training notes to help my students.

In 2015 the industry started to change the way driving instructors were expected to work then in 2018 the new driving test started. I then started to realise that the average driving instructor does not have time to cover the full the DVSA’s National Standard for Driver Training, which promotes Safe Driving for Life. The New Style of Instructor Training and Standard Checking requires Instructors to be more Customer Centred and Coaching based.

How the Training Works

I felt that the training has a lack of a definitive framework of written coursework to give the students a chance to do Homework between lessons, The DVSA has produced a leaflet consisting of a tick box of subjects called the Drivers Record that a student could grade themselves with. This I felt was not detailed enough so I created my own Training Matrix which I have found extremely useful when training my students

Since I started teaching I have been giving my students a copy of my Training Notes to help them do Homework between lessons and have found those students that bothered to do the homework took a shorter time to understand what Safe Driving for Life is

With the changes in the driving test and the style of teaching, I started to use my skills as a website designer to create a different type of website. It has developed the idea of using a Safe Driving Blog to promote Safe Driving as a Life Skill. and an Online Training Course. To help the student do homework between lessons, partly to revise what they have done and partly to give them a framework of what information they will need for the next lesson. This training should help them develop the idea of Safe Driving for Life.

I have created my Safe Driving Blog to develop the Idea of Safe Driving as a Life Skill. The Blog aims to cover many topics promoting Road Safety and Safe Driving as a Life Skill. Also, if any issues might crop up such as changes to the driving test or any other changes in the Law that might come.

I have created the Safe Driving Blog Site to share as much information as possible to help raise the idea of Road Safety Awareness for Life. My Blog Site aims to cover as many topics promoting Road Safety and Safe Driving as a Life Skill. Also, any issues that might crop up such as changes to the driving test or any other changes in the Law that might come. The Safe Driving Blog is built to promote the idea of “Safe Driving as a Life Skill“.

The Online Training Notes Course is designed to help prepare the student for Practical Test

Over the last 20 years, I’ve been building and developing my Practical Training Notes. The Notes have been designed to give the student a framework of learning which needs to have a coach to help build a student’s understanding of what Safe Driving for Life is

The 12drive Young Drivers Course notes and Training Matrix

has been designed to help the student, they can save money by doing some homework.  By revising what you have learnt and by looking ahead to future lessons the process of learning can be improved. Also, to help promote learning, students could be asked to write comments on what they feel they have learnt and what they feel they need to learn.

However, the TRAINING NOTE COURSE cannot replace the need for a Good Driving Instructor to guide and point out learning problems along with other training/safety needs. A Qualified and Experienced Driving Instructor is essential when learning to be a Safe Driver for Life and they are needed to direct the individual student’s needs when learning to pass the driving test. The Training Notes have been designed as an online Training Reference Source to Supplement the Driving Instructor. They are NOT intended to Replace any Driving Instructor in any way.

By using the Training Matrix, students can start to see what they have been taught. Then use a grading method to start them thinking how well they know the subjects taught them and which subjects they want to learn next. Hopefully, the Notes and Blogs will promote Safe Driving for Life. The Training Notes have been written in a bite-size form to help students understand what needs to be learnt, however, the student still need the services of a good qualified and experienced driving instructor
