Understanding the Rickmansworth driver training Journey

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. The first part deals with hazard perception and it’ a multiple choice exam. This part of the test is a tougher version of the one new drivers take to get their license. The part two of the exam involves a more difficult version of the one that those seeking their driver license have to pass. 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 intense and thorough, 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.
