What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Higham-Ferrers entails

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK. The exam has 3 segments. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. The part one of the test is simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. 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 is designed to test you to reveal if you can test and guide. 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.
