How many driving lessons will I need?"
Learning to Drive How many driving lessons will I need? How many driving lessons will I need? This is a question that driving instructors get asked by most new pupils. The DVSA suggest that you will need around 44 hours of instruction plus 20 hours private practice. But every individual is different, we all learn in different ways and at different speeds. So, you may need far fewer or more. The important thing is to not put pressure on yourself to pass in a certain number of lessons. As this can cause anxiety which can affect your driving. No one can promise that you will pass your test in a certain number of lessons, there are far too many factors. Being prepared and ready for your test so that you stand a better chance of passing first time is far better and will save you money in the long run. You should…. • Make sure that you have the right driving instructor for you and how you learn • Take your theory test early in the process, this means you will be up to date on the latest rules and be more aware of hazards which will help you with your practical skills • Taking 90 minute or 2 hour lessons, you will learn far more in longer lessons that you will in shorter ones, although this will seem very expensive, in the long term this will save you money • Take regular driving lessons each week • If you can practice privately between lessons this will help you progress more quickly, discuss with your instructor what you need to practice.
