Understanding the Staffordshire driver training Journey

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. The exam has 3 segments. The first part tests your hazard perception via a multiple choice questions. This part of the test is a tougher version of the one new drivers take to get their license. 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 third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. 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 tough and demanding, as is to be expected.
