What to Expect from our driver training in Beckenham

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. 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 where you take a practical driving test similar to the one that those seeking driving license take but it is much tougher. The part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach and coach. The student is assessed at this stage, so you must 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.
