More about the Hertfordshire driver training from Smart Drive

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK. The exam has 3 segments. 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. 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. 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 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.
