Frequently Asked Questions

The average person takes about 20 hours of driving practice (usually with a family member or friend), in addition to about 45 hours of lessons with an instructor. It’s important to note that this is the average throughout the UK, and not something you should compare yourself to. It might take you less time, or more time.

Is 2 driving lessons a week enough?

2 lessons per week is the recommended amount, and for maximum impact, they should both be 2-hour lessons.

Are 1 or 2 hour driving lessons better?

2-hour driving lessons are the best, because you can learn more within this time and pass your test quicker.

It all depensd on the person, it can definitely be done, but will require you to put in a lot of effort and work practicing outside of your instructor lessons.

How much does a driving lesson cost?

A driving lesson typically costs anywhere between £40-50

How old do I need to be to learn to drive?

What do I need to start learning?
