Frequently Asked Questions
There is a lot to take in when considering learning to drive. Below are a few of the most commonly asked questions we are asked. If you cannot find the answer you are looking for or have any further questions, please get in touch to speak to a member of our team.
How Many Lessons Will I Need?
Those who pass their driving test have had, on average, about 45 hours of professional training, combined with 22 hours of private practice. Candidates who combine professional instruction with private practice are also more successful on the test. Some people need more lessons and practice than others. If you’re not getting it right all the time without your instructor’s help, you’re not ready to take your test.
How Long Are Driving Lessons?
Lessons can be as long as you like. The minimum is one hour tuition, but you will probably find it most beneficial if you have a lesson of two hours or more. The reason being quite simply is that you will be enjoying what it is your doing and before you know it, times up! To get the best out of your learning we would say that at least 2 hours of tuition per week is the best route to take.
Are Block Bookings A Good Idea?
Block bookings are a great idea as you will be saving money in the long run as block bookings are generally cheaper by the hour than an individual lesson.
Is The ''Till You Pass' Offer Worth The Cost?
Very much indeed it is! The Till U Pass method of unlimited driving lessons is worth every penny. This way you can budget for your exact needs. You know exactly how much its going to cost for you to learn to drive.
Now if you think that 46 lessons is not enough, which is what the D.S.A. say is the average lesson length, then you don’t have to worry about paying for more lessons. Even if you don’t need the full 46 lessons, you’ll not be far from it.
Learning to drive in the UK is one of the safest nations to learn to drive in and that is down to the high standards set by the D.S.A.
How Come I Have Seen More That 2 People In One Of Your Cars At Any One Time?
No, we do not car share our learner driver lessons. If you have seen more than 2 people in our learner cars that’s because some student learners do not speak English and require a translator to sit in the back. The translator is also permitted on the test if required for the UK driving test.
Other reasons why there may be more than 2 people in our cars is that we also provide Driving Instructor training. These lessons are often conducted in this way to allow potential ADI’s to develop their skills to becoming a driving instructor.
