This is a question that is often asked! There is no definite answer, it really does
depend on the person.
On your first lesson your experienced instructor can give you a rough estimate of
how many lessons you might need.
The DSA published statistics which show that the average person needs 45 hours of
professional tuition and 22 hours of private practice until they pass their test.
A lot of people will not need this much, where as others might need more. It depends
on how fast you are at learning new skills.
If you want to pass your test quickly, it is highly recommended by us and the DSA
that if you are able, you get as much private practice as possible. This means going
out and practicing with your parents/friends etc. Your companion must be over 21,
have had a licence for at least 3 years, and of course you must be insured to drive
the car you are driving and display legal sized L plates front and back.
Some insurance companies will insure learners weekly on another car such as Collingwood,
(click link below for more details).
There is a lot to learn in order to not only be a safe driver for life, but to pass
the British driving test. It will take effort by you as the learner as well as by
your driving instructor, but anyone can learn to drive, so what are you waiting for,
