More about the County-Antrim driver training from Smart Drive

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 has 3 segments. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. This part of the test is a tougher version of the one new drivers take to get their license. The part two is a practical driving test that is tougher than the one students take to earn their driving license. Part three of the exam tests your ability to instruct and coach. 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 will be playing a huge part in shaping drivers of the future and ensuring that our roads are safe so the exam is designed to test how competent you are.
