Understanding the Buntingford driver training Journey

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. The exam is done in 3 parts. The first part tests your hazard perception via a multiple choice questions. The first part of the test is similar to the one that those seeking their driving license have to pass, but it is a more difficult version. The part two is a practical driving test that is tougher than the one students take to earn their driving license. In part three of the test, your ability to tutor and instruct is tested. Here, the examiner assesses the student after you have demonstrated your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. The exam is challenging, as you would expect.

You have an important role in ensuring that drivers learn to drive safely so that our roads are safe; and that is why the exam is designed to be so thorough.
