Understanding the Minchinhampton driver training Journey

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving 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 one that those seeking their driving license have to pass, but it is a more difficult version. 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. Part three of the exam tests your ability to instruct and coach. The student is assessed at this stage, so you must 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.

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.
