What to Expect from our driver training in Leighton-Buzzard

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. The part one of the test is like the one designed for those seeking their driving license, but it is tougher. 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. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. The examiner assesses the student at this stage, and you get to demonstrate  your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. The exam is intense and thorough, as you would 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.
