What the Smart Drive UK driver training programme in Ridgacre entails

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK. XXX1  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 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. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. At this stage, the examiner will be assessing you on your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. The exam is intense and thorough, as you would expect.
