How Many Hours Of Driving Tuition Will I Need?

 How many hours of driving  tuition will I need?

It depends on a number of factors that only you can answer.

▪︎Have you ever driven before?

▪︎How good is your knowledge of the road?

▪︎Have you read up on the highway code, done your research and completed your theory and hazard perception test?

▪︎Do you have access to a car for extra practise?

▪︎How confident do you feel about learning to drive?

▪︎How committed are you in putting in the hours?

▪︎Have you read or made use of our blog to familiarize yourself and are willing to self reflect on your progress?

According to the figgers from the DVSA, you’ll need around 44 hours of professional training to pass your driving test if you are learning from scratch. This is just an average figure – it’s important to remember that everyone’s different.

Top tip: Take an Assessment Lesson with 4front Driving School and find out how many hours you might need to take, especially if you have had previous experience. This will give you a rough base line and some targets to work on. We will discuss with you your possible weak points that you need to work and set some targets for you to work towards.

Did you know that if you have ridden a motorcycle before learning to drive then you tend to be more road savvy, but you tend need to overcome other problems like using your feet to react rather than your hands?

What might affect the number of lessons that I might need?

The number of driving lessons that you will need varies from person to person.

How frequently you have lessons can be a positive. You have less gaps between lessons and retain more of the things you have learnt. At 4front Driving School our lessons are usually 2 hours long and most pupils will have one 2 hour lesson a week. Some opt for more to get to test standard quicker.

Remember – You can’t book a practical driving test until you have completed your theory first. So get it done and out of the way as soon as possible.

Learners who get extra private practice tend to pass quicker and more likely to pass first time as they get more regular sessions and a chance to practise their targets. These sessions don’t have to be full on and could just be driving to the supermarket and practising parking.

There are companys out there who offer Learner driver insurance that won’t affect your parents or partners insurance if you make a claim. It can be taken out as a temporary insurance for a week for example. Check out some of our suggested insurers via our website.
