How Many Lessons Will I Need?

As a driving instructor one of the most common questions we get asked is: How many driving lessons do I need?

Some instructors forget what it is like to be a really keen learner wanting to pass as soon as possible, so they often come out with something sarcastic like how long is a piece of string? Obviously, an answer like that doesnt motivate the pupil and may even put them off trying.

At AutoDrive we can give you those answers you want to know after your first two hour driving lesson. We believe its important to let the pupil know what their driving level is and what they need to do to get to test standard. Below is a table that was released by the DSA a few years ago. This is all we have from the DSA to give you an indication to how many driving lessons you will need. Last year we kept a record of the average amount of lessons a pupil took with us, which was 35 driving tuition hours with private practice(22 hours).  

Age Outstanding   Fast Average Below average Slow
17 - 29  26-29 30-34 35-40 41-50 51-76  
30  + 32-39 40-49 50-56 57-69


Try Our Assessment Lesson...

No matter what level you are driving at, we will tailor the assessment to your current driving ability, so it won’t be a case of going over old subjects and wasting time. Once we can see you’re capable, we will keep moving on and challenging you in different areas of driving. Whatever you don’t know, we will teach you and see how quickly you pick things up. In 2 hours we will teach you whilst monitoring your progress. At the end of your lesson we will tell you how many hours you will need to get to test standard. Our driving instructors are all grade A. which is the highest  grade.
