What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Leatherhead entails

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. 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. The part two is a practical driving test that is tougher than the one students take to earn their driving license. In part three of the test, your ability to tutor and instruct is tested. 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 tough and challenging exam, as you can expect.
