The South-Yorkshire driver training experience with Smart Drive

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK. The exam is done in 3 parts. The first part tests your hazard perception via a multiple choice questions. The first part of the test is similar to the ones that learner drivers take 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. 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.   The exam is tough and demanding, as is to be expected.
