More about the Kingston-upon-Thames 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 is in 3 parts. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. The part one of the test is simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. 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. In part three of the test, your ability to tutor and instruct is tested. At this stage, the examiner will be assessing you on your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. The exam is intense and thorough, as you would expect.

Ensuring the safety of our roads will be part of your responsibility because you will be training future drivers. That is why the exam is tough and comprehensive.
