So, you want to know how many lessons you will need?
It is difficult to gauge initially how many lessons you may need. The driving tests now are more demanding than ever and a high
degree of skill is needed to pass the tests. If you were to ask many of the larger driving institutions and national driving schools then
a recommended amount would be approximately 30-40 hours tuition for a 17 yr old pupil. Some people learn much more quickly and
some people take more time and lessons to reach an acceptable standard. After a few lessons your instructor should be able to give
you a fair indication.
Your driving test will last anywhere between 38-48 minutes depending on various conditions and routes,during the test you will be asked to carry out ONE of the following manoeuvres.
