What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Clapham entails

You are required to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam before you can be a driving tutor in the UK. The exam has 3 segments. The first part tests your hazard perception via a multiple choice questions. 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. Part three of the exam tests your ability to instruct and coach. Here, the examiner assesses the student after you have demonstrated your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies.
