The Thaxted driver training experience with Smart Drive

You are required to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam before you can be a driving tutor in the UK.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. The first part deals with hazard perception and it’ a multiple choice exam. 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. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. 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. It’s a tough and challenging exam, as you can expect.

The reason the exam is so thorough is to ensure that you are ready to take up the task of teaching smart and safe drivers so that our roads can be safe.
