What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Kenton entails

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK. The exam is done in 3 parts. The first part deals with hazard perception and it’ a multiple choice exam. This part of the test is a tougher version of the one new drivers take to get their license. Part two of the test is a practical driving test that is also similar to the one that those seeking their driving license take, but this one is tougher. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. 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 challenging, as you would expect.

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.
