What the Smart Drive UK driver training programme in Faringdon 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 deals with hazard perception and it’ a multiple choice exam. The part one of the test is simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. The part two of the test is where you take a practical driving test similar to the one that those seeking driving license take but it is much tougher. In part three of the test, your ability to tutor and instruct is tested. 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 comprehensive and difficult exam, as should be expected.

Ensuring the safety of our roads will be part of your responsibility because you will be training future drivers. That is why the exam is tough and comprehensive.
