What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Knaresborough 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. The exam is in 3 parts. The first part deals with hazard perception and it’ a multiple choice exam. The part one of the test is like the one designed for those seeking their driving license, but it is tougher. The part two is a practical driving test that is tougher than the one students take to earn their driving license. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. Here, the examiner assesses the student after you have demonstrated your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. It’s a tough and challenging exam, as you can 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.
