Understanding the East-Ham 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. It’s a three-part exam. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. This part of the test is a tougher version of the one new drivers take to get their license. 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. Part three of the exam tests your ability to instruct and coach. The examiner assesses the student at this stage, and you get to 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.

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.
