Understanding the Ilminster driver training Journey

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. The first part is a multiple choice exam which covers hazard perception. The part one of the test is simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. The part two of the test is a tougher practical driving test compared to the one that those applying for a driving license take. 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. 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.
