The Godalming driver training experience with Smart Drive

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam to be legally permitted to be a driving tutor in the UK. The exam is done in 3 parts. The first part deals with hazard perception and it’ a multiple choice exam. The first part of the test is similar to the ones that learner drivers take but it is tougher. The part two is a practical driving test that is tougher than the one students take to earn their driving license. The third part of the test assesses your ability to actually coach and tutor. At this stage, the examiner will be assessing you on 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 reason the exam is so thorough is to ensure that you are ready to take up the task of teaching smart and safe drivers so that our roads can be safe.
