Many potential driving instructors find it hard to get their head around this part
of the marking sheet, how can you ensure effective communication throughout your
test? The answer is simple, if you would like to come across as somebody who communicates
well (which should be a core quality of any decent driving instructor) then what
should you avoid?
- Talking in a low, quiet manner which comes across as low on confidence
- Vague instructions
- No eye contact
All of these undesirable qualities show bad communicational skills and will be frowned
upon by the examiner, think of every quality you would like to see from someone
who comes across as a confident person and use those qualities. If you ensure your
instructions are clear and concise, you seem like you believe in what you are saying
and make regular eye contact with your ‘pupil’, this will help when the examiner
marks the communication segment of the marking sheet. Additionally, maintain a good
posture in your exam and don’t leave any considerable moments of silences.
