It has been an interesting week of contrasts for me, the highs and lows(?) of being a driving instructor.
On Thursday I took a pupil, John, for test. He passed with zero minors which, depending on the statistics you believe, only 1 in 250 or 1 in 5000 people do. Either way, he was my 43rd pass so 1 in 43 for me is pretty good!
Conversely on Wednesday I had to tell a pupil to postpone his test, because he simply wasn't going to be ready and I was concerned about his standard of driving. I hate delaying tests because I don't like to disappoint pupils and therefore find it difficult to do. However, in this case I made the right call and was happy with the way that I did it. The justification was plain and clear and ultimately I made the right decision.
I've also had a chance this week to enjoy the sunshine, have taken on a couple of new people and have some other prospects in the pipeline. I've also ordered my new car, a brand new Citroen DS3 - arrives 1st October.
Next week I may not be so satisfied but this week has been good!
