Understanding the Warlingham driver training Journey

You have to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam, to become eligible to teach driving in the UK.  1) The exam is divided into three parts. The first part of the exam that deals with hazard perception is 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. 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 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 tough and demanding, as is to 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.
