The Longbridge driver training experience with Smart Drive UK

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK. The exam is done in 3 parts. The first part is a multiple choice exam which covers hazard perception. The first part of the test is similar to the one that those seeking their driving license have to pass, but it is a more difficult version. 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 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 comprehensive and difficult exam, as should be expected.

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.
