Driving Lessons

How Many Lessons will I need?

This depends on your ability bearing in mind that your lessons will focus on each individual and specific needs. The more practice you have the better your driving skills will become. The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) recommend an average of 45 hours tuition for learners with an Advanced Driving Instructor (ADI) plus an additional 22 hours of private practice. We would recommend your first lesson being a 2 hour lesson as there is a lot to cover over on the first step of you learning to drive.
