Positives the examiner is looking for in this competency.
Keeping a respectful distance and not invading the pupil’s personal space. (Unintentail pitfalls here can include, putting a diagram on your lap for the pupil to draw on or look at. Have the diagram between you or give it to the learner.
Reaching behind for folders. Have them easily accessible or get out and get them.
Reaching across to help with button or switch. There may be times you have to reach across for safety reasons but these should be limited to emergency moments.)
Asking the pupil how they wish to be addressed. (Don’t make assumptions.)
Asking a disabled driver to explain what the ADI needs to know about their condition.
Adopting an appropriate position in the car.
Using language about other road users that is not derogatory and that does not invite the pupil to collude with any discriminatory attitude. (Avoid using any stereotypes and challenge your pupil’s stereotypes, use them as learning opportunities. Classic examples are bmw drivers, van drivers, taxi drivers, old drivers.)
