How many hours will it take to Pass your Driving Test?According to the latest Government survey people learning to drive in the UK buy on average 52 hours of professional driving lessons. From this you will appreciate it can easily cost you over a £1,300 to learn to drive and take up to a year to pass the practical driving test. With the system of driving tuition that I use the average number of hours to pass the test is closer to 30 hours - a potential saving of up to 22 hours from the norm or about £500. This is why it is important to select the right driving school and training approach.
Weekly lessons versus intensive courses?Taking just one driving lesson per week will help to spread out the training cost but you will end up paying far more in the long run and take several months to pass your test. This is because the first half of the next lesson is often wasted getting to where you were at the end of the previous one - thus it is like taking two steps forward and one step back. Also if you are taking weekly lessons without any clear targets to achieve or set test date to aim for the training loses any urgency and lessons tend to drift off course reducing its effectiveness even further. This is why intensive and semi-intensive courses are now proving far more popular.
|1 hour driving lesson||£30.00||£--|
|2 hour driving lesson||£57.00||£3.00|
|Block booking of 10 hourly driving lessons (paid in advance)||£275.00||£25.00|
|Midway pass course||£550.00||£50.00|
|One week pass course||£855.00||£45.00|
Learning to drive, using the system I teach, can be spread over several weeks and lessons can be booked individually or in a block at a discount.
Test Booster Course (15 hours of driving lessons)
For those who are nearing test standard and who just need a short burst of lessons prior to the test we have the Test Booster Course. It is also ideal for those who have had an attempt at the test some time ago but haven’t had any lessons since. The in-car training is 15 hours on a one pupil to one instructor basis. (This includes 2 hours for attending the driving test).
Midway Pass Course (20 hours of driving lessons)
For those who have already learned the basic control skills of driving we have the Midway Pass Course.

Semi-intensive Pass Course (30 hours of driving lessons)
The Semi-intensive Pass Course is identical in content to the One Week Pass Course (i.e. 30 hours etc) except the training is spread over two or more weeks to suit you and my schedule. This is the most successful form of intensive training. It is designed for people who want to pass the test quickly but at a comfortable pace.
The in-car training is 30 hours on a one to one basis. (This includes 2 hours to attend the test).
One Week Pass Course (30 hours of driving lessons)
The One Week Pass Course is spread out over 5 working days. It is ideal for those who are in a hurry, who could not otherwise find the time. The driving test would usually be organised to take place at the end of the week or during the following week depending on your personal preference. If you want a test at the end of the course you would need to book the course and pass the theory test well in advance of the required start date (i.e. at least two months in advance).
The in-car training provided is 30 hours on a one pupil to one instructor basis. (This includes 2 hours for attending the driving test).
