More about the Surbiton driver training from Smart Drive

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. The first part tests your hazard perception via a multiple choice questions. The part one of the test is simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. 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. 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 intense and thorough, as you would expect.
