The Fairford driver training experience with 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. The first part is a multiple choice exam which covers hazard perception. The first part of the test is similar to the ones that learner drivers take but it is tougher. The part two of the exam involves a more difficult version of the one that those seeking their driver license have to pass. The third part of the test is designed to test you to reveal if you can test and guide. 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 will be playing a huge part in shaping drivers of the future and ensuring that our roads are safe so the exam is designed to test how competent you are.
