Understanding the Mitcheldean driver training Journey

To be legally permitted to tutor anyone on how to drive in the UK, you have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. The first part of the test is similar to the ones that learner drivers take but it is tougher. 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 student is assessed at this stage, so you must demonstrate your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies.   The exam is tough and demanding, as is to be expected.

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.
