The Southampton driver training experience with Smart Drive

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK. The exam has 3 segments. The first part tests your hazard perception via a multiple choice questions.
The first part of the test is similar to the ones that learner drivers take but it is tougher. The part two of the exam involves a more difficult version of the one that those seeking their driver license have to pass.

Part three of the exam tests your ability to instruct and coach. At this stage, the examination officer acts the role of a nervous driving student and you get to prove that you can help such a driver master his/her nerves and learn to drive. The exam is challenging, as you would expect. The task of ensuring that our roads are safe is a serious one so the thoroughness and toughness of the exam are to ensure that you are ready for it. You need a school that is committed to your progress, and understands your goals, to guide you in passing the exam. We believe that driving instructor training must be personal to the learner, spending the right amount of time on each competency to ensure that you come out of the processes a well-rounded driving instructor.
