How many lessons will I need to pass my test?
Learning to drive is different for everyone. Some people may pick up the techniques and gain confidence very quickly while others may struggle to gain competence in certain areas. If you can actively listen and apply this knowledge in practice – then you can’t go wrong. Some determining factors include:
- How much driving experience do you have?
- Do you have a good road awareness?
- How much practice will you get between lessons?
- Roughly 12 – 16 lessons should enable you to pass your driving assessment 1st time.
