What to Expect from our driver training in Purley

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. The exam is in 3 parts. The first part deals with hazard perception and it’ 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 is a practical driving test that is tougher than the one students take to earn their driving license. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. 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 challenging, 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.
