What to Expect from our driver training in Stroud

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK. The exam is done in 3 parts. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. The part one of the test is simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. Part two of the test is a practical driving test that is also similar to the one that those seeking their driving license take, but this one is tougher. In part three of the test, your ability to tutor and instruct is tested. At this stage, the examiner will be assessing you on 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.
