More about the Edenbridge driver training from Smart Drive

To be legally permitted to tutor anyone on how to drive in the UK, you have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam.  1) The exam is divided into three 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 one that those seeking their driving license have to pass, but it is a more difficult version. The part two of the test is where you take a practical driving test similar to the one that those seeking driving license take but it is much tougher. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. 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 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.
