All our advanced driving courses come complete with a full driving report for each driver completed after the course. Not all driver training companies offer this. Some have no post course report, others have a simple tick box style report – both have their reasons for doing what they do, so we are not going to start saying otherwise!
However, we like to differentiate ourselves from other businesses in the advanced driver training market by offering a full driving report for each driver. Although it takes a little more of our tutors time we feel producing a report is essential for the following reasons:
1. It’s Proof! – Having completed Â an advanced driving course is one thing, but having actual proof of having done one, and what was covered on the day is something else. Many corporate clients find this very useful when training company car drivers, as it is something that can go in to their HR file and also records their overall road risk.
2. It’s Motivating – Â People like to have something tangible after receiving something non-tangible such as training. The report also places extra emphasis on all the positive elements of the training and driving, along with all the points which need further work on.
3. It’s a Benchmark – Having a written report is also a good benchmark. They can refer back to the report, and use it to remind themselves of the areas they need to work harder on.
What does our advanced driving reports cover?
We have a set format for all reports, although the tutors reporting style changes slightly depending on the nature of the training and the individual driver. Below are the key elements of the report:
1. Notes on the initial observed drive:
With our courses we allows around 30 minutes to start, for the driver to relax and to drive in a way they normally do, this is where we make notes on how they drive. This forms our platform for the training.
2. Vehicle Controls:
Covers steering, indicators and foot pedals
3.Â AwarenessÂ & Anticipation:
This looks at their levels of awareness and how they anticipate in a range of driving situations.
4. Attitude & Confidence:
This focuses on how they respond to different stresses in a range of driving situations.
5. Car Control & Technical Ability:
This looks at how they physically deal with driving the car, this is usually most accurately assessed when driving on demanding roads like fast B roads in rural locations.
6. Understanding of Law/Rules:
This not only looks at their knowledge of the rules and law, but also their attitude and adherence to them.
7. General Overview:
This gives the tutor the opportunity to give a final overview of the training, along with any areas for further improvement.
