Understanding the Streetly driver training Journey

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. 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 of the test is where you take a practical driving test similar to the one that those seeking driving license take but it is much tougher. Part three of the exam tests your ability to instruct 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. The exam is intense and thorough, as you would 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.
