Pupil Record Sheets

When attending a driver training course with us, you will have a personal ‘Pupil Record’. This will be completed daily by you and our instructor It will hold details of your training dates, what training you are attending, progress and your feedback.

In addition identifiable information such as driving licence and contact number will be kept on this. This document is kept with your instructor/s for the duration of your course.

Once your course is finished this document is scanned and securely stored on our system along with (if applicable) a copy of any DL25 examination report and/or Pass Certificate. Any paper documents are destroyed.

If you have booked through a third party agent for your training, we will share your Pupil Record Sheet, a copy of your test pass certificate and/or DL25 with them.

We would like to retain these documents and your details on our computer systems for a period of 12 months from your finish date, for the purposes of confirmation of attendance and the fulfilment of our services to you/your employer/agent.

Social Media

We are proud of all our students who obtain additional licences and have trained hard to get them. On occasions our instructors may ask to take pictures of you whilst training or once you have passed your driving test. RSM will share these pictures on its social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+. We may also use the images for promotional material or for use on our website in future.

We will not take any pictures without your knowledge or consent. By allowing us to take a picture you agree your consent and that of your employer/booking agent (if applicable) that the image is the property of RSM and can be used in the capacity detailed.

 For the purpose of crime prevention, RSM’s training depot has CCTV surveillance operating 24 hours per day. Signs are clearly displayed. Requests to view footage can be made to the Office Manager.

Marketing Preferences

We feel its important to keep our customers up to date with news, whether it be from us, the DVSA or other industry organisations or to contact you to remind you of upcoming expiry dates of your CPC hours, but we understand that once your training with us finishes you may prefer not to receive such news and that’s why we will give you the option to opt in or out to this service. You can make us aware of your preferences by ticking the relevant box on your ‘Pupil Record’ sheet.

We only keep data for a year after training completion so we will contact you after this time to see if you still wish to remain on our marketing system if you have opted in.

You can change your preference at any time by contacting us.
