What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Thetford entails

To be legally permitted to tutor anyone on how to drive in the UK, you have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam. It’s a three-part exam. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. The first part of the test is similar to the one that those seeking their driving license have to pass, but it is a more difficult version. Part two of the test is a practical driving test that is also similar to the one that those seeking their driving license take, but this one is tougher. The part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach and coach. At this stage, the examiner will be assessing you on your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. The exam is intense and thorough, 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.
