The Maidenhead driver training experience with Smart Drive

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. 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. The third part of the test is designed to test you to reveal if you can test and guide. 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 challenging, as you would expect.

The reason the exam is so thorough is to ensure that you are ready to take up the task of teaching smart and safe drivers so that our roads can be safe.
