Understanding the Durham driver training Journey
You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK. The exam has 3 segments. The first part tests your hazard perception via a multiple choice questions. The first part of the test is similar to the ones that learner drivers take but it is tougher. 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. The third part of the test is designed to test you to reveal if you can test and guide. 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.
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.
You need a good school that truly cares about you and the direction you want to go, to pass the exam. You deserve a personalized training programme that takes into account your learning style and level of competency – not just a one-size-fits-all training programme.
