More about the Tyne-and-Wear driver training from Smart Drive

You are required to pass the DVSA Approved Driving Instructor exam before you can be a driving tutor in the UK. The exam has 3 segments. The first part is a multiple choice exam which covers hazard perception. 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 part three of the test is where you get to prove that you can actually teach and coach. At this stage, the examiner will be assessing you on your ability to demonstrate lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies.   The exam is tough and demanding, as is to 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.
