Driving School Management Systems are designed to make the task of managing your driving school easier. They are generally online applications that allow you to track students’ progress, track attendance, generate reports on student performance, and give instructors an easy way to grade their students.

How to Create Database for Driving School Management System – List of Tables

This article will give you with the list of tables and field/columns for every table in the design of database structure/schema of driving school management system.

tbl_student – this table of the project has 13 columns. The purpose of this table is to hold records of the students profile and personal information.

  • student_id – This column serves as the table’s primary key. Auto increment is the default setting in most circumstances (the database will automatically give this column a value starting from 1).
  • last_name – This column will store the last name of the student.
  • first_name – The student’s first name will be stored in this column.
  • middle_name – This column will contain the student’s middle name.
  • gender – This column will have the student’s gender.
  • date_of_birth – This will store the birth date of the student.
  • address – complete address of the student will recorded ad stored in this field.
  • contact – contact number such as the phone or mobile number of the student.
  • email_address – valid email address of the student.
  • profile_picture – official photo of the student and it will also be used for identification card.
  • username – desired username of student or in some cases, it is their student id number.
  • password – password of the student will be generated first by the system and they can change it later.
  • account_status – Accounts with admin or staff privileges can change a user’s status from active to inactive.

Create SQL Statement – the statement below is used to create the tbl_student, copy the sql statement and paste it in the sql manager/tab of your phpmyadmin.

Summary

Many driving schools are using Database systems to manage their operations. Such software includes accounting functions, student information management, customer service modules, and supply ordering. You must make an objective decision based on this knowledge to create a more informed decision on which type of software will best suit your needs. We hope that this article provided you with the details of different tables used for driving schools and how they can benefit your business.
