Understanding the Chingford driver training Journey

To be legally permitted to tutor anyone on how to drive in the UK, you have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. The first part deals with hazard perception and it’ a multiple choice exam. 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 exam involves a more difficult version of the one that those seeking their driver license have to pass. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. 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 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.
