More about the Bristol driver training from Smart Drive

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. The exam has 3 segments. 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 ones that learner drivers take but it is tougher. 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 is designed to test you to reveal if you can test and guide. 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 comprehensive and difficult exam, as should be expected.

Ensuring the safety of our roads will be part of your responsibility because you will be training future drivers. That is why the exam is tough and comprehensive.
