How many hours will i need to pass my test ?
This is a very hard question for any instructor to answer if we have never met you, we might be able to give you a rough idea when we have seen your driving and how quickly you pick driving up as every person is totally different with how they pick driving up, some people come to us total naturals and are ready in as little as 20 hours, than some will take longer, This also depends on if you have regular lessons or not as if you keep having a few lessons than a few weeks break than this will end up costing you more and it will take you longer to pick driving up so it is important before starting lessons to make sure you are going to be able to have regular weekly lessons.
DSA figures say for automatic learning to dr.ive can take between 30 and 40 hours and with manual between 40 and 50 hours.
