What to Expect from our driver training in ThornabyonTees

You are required to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam before you can be a driving tutor in the UK. It’s a three-part exam. The first part tests your hazard perception via a multiple choice questions. 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. The part two is a practical driving test that is tougher than the one students take to earn their driving license. The part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach and coach. Here, the examiner assesses the student after you have demonstrated 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.
