How Many Lessons

How many lessons do I need?

This is the single most common question that is asked to a professional driving instructor who is teaching someone how to drive a motor vehicle on the busy UK roads – please visit the link here to view our guidance chart.

Our average lesson time frame for pupils beginning to passing their test in 2014 was approximately 37 hours, 35 hours in 2013, 33 hours in 2012, 34 hours in 2011, and the previous years did follow a similar pattern. The largest factor of lesson increase is not the practical test being harder, but the traffic conditions and volume of vehicles on the road being substantially bigger.

There is no definitive answer, but there are guides, statistics and information for guidance on the subject:
According to the Driving Standards Agency (DSA), the average person / learner will require around 40 hours of professional tuition, which is combined and ran parallel with approximately 20 hours of private practice.

If a driving instructor tells you he or she can easily get you through in 20 or less hours they are being economic with the truth. The fact is that unless you have driven previously and have some experience, control and ‘savvy’ on the road your expectations will be massively exaggerated.

So be realistic and honest with yourself – safety is paramount when learning to drive ….
