What to Expect from our driver training in Whitby

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 has 3 segments. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. 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. In part three of the test, your ability to tutor and instruct is tested. 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 challenging, as you would expect.

Ensuring the safety of our roads will be part of your responsibility because you will be training future drivers. That is why the exam is tough and comprehensive.
