What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Bedford entails

To be legally permitted to tutor anyone on how to drive in the UK, you have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam. The exam has 3 segments. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. The part one of the test is simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. Part two of the test is a practical driving test that is also similar to the one that those seeking their driving license take, but this one is tougher. In part three of the test, your ability to tutor and instruct is tested. The student is assessed at this stage, so you must demonstrate your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. It’s a tough and challenging exam, as you can expect.

Ensuring the safety of our roads will be part of your responsibility because you will be training future drivers. That is why the exam is tough and comprehensive.
