What the Smart Drive driver training programme in Oxted entails

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 deals with hazard perception and it’ a multiple choice exam. The part one of the test is like the one designed for those seeking their driving license, but it is tougher. 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 is designed to test you to reveal if you can test and guide. 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 intense and thorough, as you would expect.

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.
