Understanding the Sutton-in-Ashfield driver training Journey

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. 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 simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. The part two of the exam involves a more difficult version of the one that those seeking their driver license have to pass. The third part of the test is designed to test you to reveal if you can test and guide. At this stage, the examiner will be assessing you on your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies. The exam is challenging, as you would expect.

You have an important role in ensuring that drivers learn to drive safely so that our roads are safe; and that is why the exam is designed to be so thorough.
