Understanding the Grantham driver training Journey

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK. The exam is in 3 parts. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. 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. 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 tough and demanding, as is to be expected.

The task of ensuring that our roads are safe is a serious one so the thoroughness and toughness of the exam are to ensure that you are ready for it.
