Understanding the Southwell driver training Journey

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. The exam has 3 segments. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. This part of the test is a tougher version of the one new drivers take to get their license. 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. 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.   It’s a comprehensive and difficult exam, as should be expected.

You will be playing a huge part in shaping drivers of the future and ensuring that our roads are safe so the exam is designed to test how competent you are.
