What to Expect from our driver training in Minehead

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. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. The first part of the test is similar to the one that those seeking their driving license have to pass, but it is a more difficult version. 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. Here, the examiner assesses the student after you have demonstrated your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies.   It’s a comprehensive and difficult exam, as should be expected.

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.
