The Blackwater driver training experience with Smart Drive

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. The exam is in 3 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 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 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 challenging, 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.
