What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Willington entails

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. The exam is in 3 parts. The first part is a multiple choice exam which covers hazard perception. The part one of the test is like the one designed for those seeking their driving license, but it is tougher. The part two of the exam involves a more difficult version of the one that those seeking their driver license have to pass. Part three of the exam tests your ability to instruct and coach. Here, the examiner assesses the student after you have demonstrated your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. The exam is intense and thorough, as you would expect.
