The Handsworth driver training experience with Smart Drive UK

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 is done in 3 parts. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. The part one of the test is simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. The part two is a practical driving test that is tougher than the one students take to earn their driving license. In part three of the test, your ability to tutor and instruct is tested. 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.

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.
