What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Stamford entails

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK. It’s a three-part exam. The first part is a multiple choice exam which covers hazard perception. 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 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. At this stage, the examiner will be assessing you on your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. The exam is challenging, as you would expect.

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.
