What the Smart Drive UK driver training programme in Gilbertstone entails

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK. It’s a three-part exam. The first part is a multiple choice exam which covers hazard perception. The first part of the test is similar to the ones that learner drivers take 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 part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach and coach. 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. It’s a tough and challenging exam, as you can expect.

You have an important role in ensuring that drivers learn to drive safely so that our roads are safe; and that is why the exam is designed to be so thorough.
