More about the Eccles driver training from Smart Drive

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. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. The first part of the test is similar to the ones that learner drivers take but it is tougher. The part two of the exam involves a more difficult version of the one that those seeking their driver license have to pass. The part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach and coach. 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.   It’s a comprehensive and difficult exam, as should be expected.

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.
