Driver Testers Should Ensure That They
- Are punctual for all test appointments.
- Complete all documentation neatly and legibly, e.g. titles, names, times, dates, route no's., notes, Pass Certificates, ref no's. etc. Files should be kept in sequence.
- Issue all Certificates in sequence.
- Understand the need for regular in-car monitoring of tests, and engage in informed discussion on the test standards with the Supervisor.
- Conform in all respects with the instructions of the Supervisor in relation to test standards, marking of faults, assessment of applicants, test routes etc.
- Have adequate supplies of documentation - Certificates, Report Sheets, facing sheets, accident report sheets, routes, keys, name plate etc. for the efficient discharge of their duties.
- Secure files, documents, at all times.
- Ensure that files are posted at the end of each week.
- Allow the applicant to enlist the help of the accompanying person, or instructor, where brief or minor repairs are necessary, e.g. change of bulb, where time permits.
- Wear seat-belts in general. After the turnabout or reverse, testers should remind applicants where necessary that they may wish to put on their seat-belt.
- Do not rest their elbow on the vehicle windowsill in a way that may block the applicant's view.
- Do not conduct a test with an immediate relative, or with a personal friend.
- May only teach an immediate relative (son, daughter, husband or wife) to drive, and must inform head office in Ballina via the Supervisor, of the details, by way of a written note.
- Allow, where a tyre is punctured/flat on test, time to change it or pump it where time is available, at the discretion of the tester. The Tester should then wait outside the car.
- Testers should deal personally where possible with the applicant so as to establish the facts.
