How Many Lessons

How many driving lessons will you need? The number a new driver would need before reaching a standard to pass a practical test varies according to certain pre-learning to drive conditions & the method of driver training being used.

The Driver Vehicle Standards Agency [examiners authority] state that the average new driver will need 40/50 professional lessons plus plenty of private practice before they would be ready to pass their practical test. This may seem a lot of hours, but remember it is only an average, which means some people will need a lot more than the hours quoted and some people would need less.

The best way to look at those numbers is to plan for the worst & hope for the best. In other words plan financially for your lessons to cost more than you first thought and for them to take longer than you thought. That way you will not be disappointed, but you could be pleasantly surprised if you complete your lessons in less time.
