More about the Crayford driver training from Smart Drive

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 of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. The first part of the test is similar to the ones that learner drivers take but it is tougher. The part two of the test is a tougher practical driving test compared to the one that those applying for a driving license take. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. 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 intense and thorough, as you would expect.

You have an important role in ensuring that drivers learn to drive safely so that our roads are safe; and that is why the exam is designed to be so thorough.
