The City-of-Westminster 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 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. In part three of the test, your ability to tutor and instruct is tested. Here, the examiner assesses the student after you have demonstrated your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. It’s a tough and challenging exam, as you can expect.

You will be playing a huge part in shaping drivers of the future and ensuring that our roads are safe so the exam is designed to test how competent you are.
