What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Ponteland entails

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 of the exam that deals with hazard perception is 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 is a practical driving test that is tougher than the one students take to earn their driving license. Part three of the exam tests your ability to instruct and coach. The student is assessed at this stage, so you must demonstrate your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. The exam is challenging, as you would expect.

The reason the exam is so thorough is to ensure that you are ready to take up the task of teaching smart and safe drivers so that our roads can be safe.
