This structure will help to assure value for money and your consistent driving development.
How many lessons will I need to pass my driving test?
It can vary greatly but current Diving Standards Agency statistics show that learners take an average of 45 hours tuition, combined with 22 hours Private Practice before they are ready to pass the driving test. This statistic often causes a reaction from those who passed their test some time ago.
In the past the Driving Test was simpler and far less challenging than it is today. Back then a learner may have passed in 10 to 20 lessons. Nowadays, the Government are committed to reducing road casualties and the test has become consistently longer and more challenging. Please do not be put off by claims of "I passed in 10 lessons." Maybe they did, but today's roads are far more complex and the test is far more demanding.
How long will it take to pass?
Statistics show the more frequently driving lessons are taken the sooner the learner driver will pass. Those who take a two hour lesson or two 1 hour lessons a week will not only pass quicker, but take less overall hours than those taking one hour a week. That is not to say a learner taking 1 hour a week will struggle to pass, it just takes longer. "Really Good Driving School" offer 1,1.5 and 2 hour lessons and you can book more than one session per week.
Are intensive courses suitable for me?
Intensive courses can reduce the time it takes to pass greatly. They can be spread from 1 to 4 weeks. Course are normally 20, 30, and 40 hours, but can vary to suit the individual learner. After a free assessment hour, your instructor will help advise you on this.
20 Hours: For those who have perhaps failed a test recently or have been near test standard.
30 Hours: For learners who have reasonable car control and can manage to negotiate simple junctions.
40 Hours: This course is more suited to beginers.
Got your Provisional Licence? Now all you need is sensible footwear!
When you come along for your lessons it would be advantageous to wear sensible footwear. Big heavy boots or high heels will make controlling sensitive foot pedals really difficult to master. Please remember if you wear glasses to bring them along as your instructor is required to give you an eyesight test which involves reading a vehicle registration plate from a distance of 20.5 meters. Don't forget to bring along both parts of your Provisional Driving Licence too.
