More about the Saffron-Walden driver training from Smart Drive

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. 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 of the test is a tougher practical driving test compared to the one that those applying for a driving license take. The part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach and coach. At this stage, the examiner will be assessing you on your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. It’s a tough and challenging exam, as you can 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.
