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 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.   The exam is tough and demanding, as is to be expected.
