What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Heywood entails

You are required to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam before you can be a driving tutor in the UK. The exam has 3 segments. 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. 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 intense and thorough, as you would expect.

The reason the exam is so thorough is to ensure that you are ready to take up the task of teaching smart and safe drivers so that our roads can be safe.
