More about the Swanley driver training from Smart Drive

You are required to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam before you can be a driving tutor in the UK.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. The first part is a multiple choice exam which covers hazard perception. The first part of the test is similar to the ones that learner drivers take but it is tougher. The part two of the test is a tougher practical driving test compared to the one that those applying for a driving license take. 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.   It’s a comprehensive and difficult exam, as should be expected.

Ensuring the safety of our roads will be part of your responsibility because you will be training future drivers. That is why the exam is tough and comprehensive.
