What to Expect from our driver training in Suffolk

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving 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 part one of the test is like the one designed for those seeking their driving license, but it is tougher. The part two of the test is a tougher practical driving test compared to the one that those applying for a driving license take. The part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach 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. The exam is challenging, as you would expect.

Ensuring the safety of our roads will be part of your responsibility because you will be training future drivers. That is why the exam is tough and comprehensive.
