What is effective communication?
Effective Communication is all about a balanced, equal relationship between both parties: the driving instructor and the student, where communication is authentic, neutral and non-judgemental.
At Ladybird Driving School, our aim is to encourage learners to take responsibility for the driving task
so that when they pass their driving test and are independent, they know how to self-evaluate and avoid risky situations.
Our Ladybird Driving Instructors learn how to develop self-evaluation skills in learner drivers by tapping into underpinning beliefs and values.
What is Feedback for Development?
Driving is a task that involves a high level of reflection and self-evaluation if it’s to be carried out safely. At Ladybird, our instructors are trained in the process of effective feedback which facilitates the development of the student driver so that they can evaluate and reflect upon their driving after they pass their driving test and are unsupervised.
This encourages self-awareness and self-responsibility, two cornerstone life skills.
Research shows that the process of reflection reduces crash involvement in that if a newly qualified driver is involved in a “near miss” incident and has been coached to develop self-evaluation skills, they will be able to reflect on this incident and determine how to prevent a similar one occurring in the future.
What is a Coaching Conversation?
At Ladybird Driving School we train our instructors in how to structure a coaching conversation during a driving lesson to help achieve raised awareness and self-responsibility on the part of the
The aim of the coaching conversation is to ensure the ownership for the learning remains with the learner and that learner stays at the centre of the process.
What is the GDE?
The Goals for Driver Education (GDE) is a framework that sets out the competencies that should be achieved for newly qualified drivers to remain safe and crash-free on the roads.
Traditional driving instruction focuses on the core competencies of fault correction and levels of instruction to prepare student drivers for the driving test.
At Ladybird Driving School, our instructors are trained to consider how the personal beliefs and values of a learner driver or newly qualified driver might impact on the way they handle the vehicle.
What is Check Test Training?
All RSA Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) are required to undertake a Check Test every two years.
All the team at Ladybird Driving School wholeheartedly supports the Check Test scheme as it ensures that all instructors maintain a minimum standard of training delivery.
All our instructors receive Specialist Check Test Training to ensure that not only do they achieve success but also that our ongoing exceptionally high standard of training is maintained for all
customers of Ladybird Driving School.
