The Ripon driver training experience with Smart Drive

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. It’s a three-part exam. 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 of the exam involves a more difficult version of the one that those seeking their driver license have to pass. The third part of the test is designed to test you to reveal if you can test and guide. 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 tough and demanding, as is to be expected.

You will be playing a huge part in shaping drivers of the future and ensuring that our roads are safe so the exam is designed to test how competent you are.
