Understanding the Longridge 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 of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. The part one of the test is simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. 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 part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach and coach. Here, the examiner assesses the student after you have demonstrated your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. It’s a tough and challenging exam, as you can 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.
