What to Expect from our driver training in Painswick

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK. The exam has 3 segments. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is 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. 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. The exam is intense and thorough, as you would expect.

The task of ensuring that our roads are safe is a serious one so the thoroughness and toughness of the exam are to ensure that you are ready for it.
