More about the Reigate driver training from Smart Drive

To become a driving instructor in the UK, you will need to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor examination. The exam has 3 segments. Part one of the test is a multiple choice question that tests your hazard perception ability. The first part of the test is similar to the one that those seeking their driving license have to pass, but it is a more difficult version. The part two of the test is where you take a practical driving test similar to the one that those seeking driving license take but it is much tougher. 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.

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.
