The Church-Stretton driver training experience with Smart Drive

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK. It’s a three-part exam. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. The part one of the test is like the one designed for those seeking their driving license, but it is tougher. 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. 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. 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.
