The Barking driver training experience with Smart Drive

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK. The exam has 3 segments. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. The part one of the test is like the one designed for those seeking their driving license, but it is tougher. The part two is a practical driving test that is tougher than the one students take to earn their driving license. The third part of the test is designed to test you to reveal if you can test and guide. The student is assessed at this stage, so you must demonstrate your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. It’s a tough and challenging exam, as you can 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.
