Understanding the Ilford driver training Journey

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK. It’s a three-part exam. The first part is a multiple choice exam which covers hazard perception. The part one of the test is like the one designed for those seeking their driving license, but it is tougher. 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. The part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach 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.   The exam is tough and demanding, as is to be expected.

The reason the exam is so thorough is to ensure that you are ready to take up the task of teaching smart and safe drivers so that our roads can be safe.
