no.

Not a petition I would sign that's for sure.
Nope
It's a no from me.
No, although it would be in an unscrupulous instructors interest to fail students to get a few more lessons?
Definitely not.
Tony - you could also argue that unscrupulous instructors would pass their pupils "for a small fee".
You could also argue that school teachers are open to the same criticisms. They were talking about zoom lessons the other day and one teacher was saying she'd heard parents whispering the answers to children to make them look good.
As a former Approved Driving Instructor I would definitely not want to examine pupils so will not be signing petition.
Tony, it would also be in their interests to pass more pupils to up their pass rate
Maybe bhg, but defiantly not a good idea either way
Tony - absolutely not a good idea. I'm not in favour of exam-less grades for school pupils either for all the same reasons.
Absolutely not.
looks like there aren't any ab learner drivers reading this thread . . .
radio rental!
You could argue, of course, that an instructor who spends many hours sitting with a pupil is in a better position to assess a driver's skill than an examiner who sits with someone for less than an hour.
It'd by like coaches awarding Olympic medals.
and teachers handing out GCSEs.
Not a good idea.

Conflicts of interest for the instructor.
Maybe bhg, when I was learning my driving instructor new all the routes used and we practiced on them + some serapticilly placed matchsticks in rear window rubber to aid reversing round corners. I passed at first attempt, but had been driving with my Dad on private land before old enough for provional licence for a few years.
Yes, providing they're from a different school.
