Last minute check list

It’s been a while! Many instructors are returning to work tomorrow (Monday 12th), so we thought a quick list might be helpful:

Insurance - A lot of people downgraded or changed their insurance during lockdown. If you were one of them, remember to contact the insurer. Even if you weren’t, a quick check on the MIB website might be a good idea in case there are any issues.

MOT and Tax - Again, worth an online check to make sure you are covered.

Water - Especially when wearing masks and talking lots, hydration is important to mental and physical health.

Pupil licence check including online check - It’s been a while, who knows what some have been up to! I tried to book a theory this week and found a licence had been revoked!

Eyesight - Yours and theirs. As much as anything you don’t want them failing before they start!

Toilets - After all that water, have you figured out what the current toilet options are. Check out the ‘Flush’ app for the latest.

**Pupil update - In challenging times communication is key. Like the Standards Check Risk Management make sure your pupil knows their responsibilities and yours, and how you will ensure a successful outcome together.

POWDER/FLOWERY or VOLTS/T-CLOCK for our bikers - Check your fluids, tyres, and wipers. Cars don’t like being sat around!

Brake check - BOTH SETS - While we are sure you will check your driver brakes, make sure you test your dual controls on or before that first lesson.

When is a window not a window? When it’s ajar!
Cleaning is key and ventilation is important. Have lots of layers in the car and leave yourself time to shine!
