What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Shepton-Mallet entails

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is a multiple choice exam. 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. The part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach and coach. The student is assessed at this stage, so you must 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.

The task of ensuring that our roads are safe is a serious one so the thoroughness and toughness of the exam are to ensure that you are ready for it.
