Understanding the Watford driver training Journey

To be legally permitted to tutor anyone on how to drive in the UK, you have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam. The exam is done in 3 parts. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. The part one of the test is like the one designed for those seeking their driving license, 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. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. 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 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.
