Understanding the Thrapston driver training Journey

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK. 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 simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. Part two of the test is a practical driving test that is also similar to the one that those seeking their driving license take, but this one is tougher. Part three of the exam tests your ability to instruct and coach. At this stage, the examiner will be assessing you on your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies.   It’s a comprehensive and difficult exam, as should be expected.

The task of ensuring that our roads are safe is a serious one so the thoroughness and toughness of the exam are to ensure that you are ready for it.
