The Dorking driver training experience with Smart Drive

You are required to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam before you can be a driving tutor in the UK.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. The first part tests your hazard perception via a multiple choice questions. The part one of the test is simply a more difficult version of the driver license test. 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.

You have an important role in ensuring that drivers learn to drive safely so that our roads are safe; and that is why the exam is designed to be so thorough.
