Understanding the Colchester driver training Journey

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. The part one of the test is like the one designed for those seeking their driving license, 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 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. The exam is intense and thorough, as you would expect.

You have an important role in ensuring that drivers learn to drive safely so that our roads are safe; and that is why the exam is designed to be so thorough.
