Understanding the Gatley driver training Journey

To be legally permitted to tutor anyone on how to drive in the UK, you have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam. The exam has 3 segments. 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. 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. The student is assessed at this stage, so you must demonstrate your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. It’s a tough and challenging exam, as you can 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.
