How many hours will it take?
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 £1,000 to learn to drive and take up to a year to pass the practical driving test. With Learner driver's revolutionary System of driving tuition the average number of hours to pass the test is closer to 35 hours - a potential saving of up to 17 hours from the norm or about £450. This is why it is important to select the right driving school and training approach.

Weekly Lessons     £21 or £40 for 2 hour lesson
Learning to drive, can be spread over several weeks and lessons can be booked individually or in a block at a discount.
Lessons are 60 minutes long. Lessons 1, 1½, 2 hours or so long. For most pupils 2 hours is best. Lessons can start, from home, work, school etc. And can end elsewhere, but I would need to know in advance.
It is important to have goals to aim for. I like to get pupils to do the theory and HPT tests, within the first 6 or so lessons. I can provide everything needed.

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 less effective, 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 losses any urgency and lessons tend to drift off course reducing it effectiveness even further. This is why intensive and semi-intensive courses are now proving far more popular. However, to do such courses successfully the training needs to be carefully structured and expertly delivered so that no time in the car is wasted - hence the development of the revolutionary Learner Driver System of driving tuition.

A structured learner driver course is not only useful for intensive training it enables weekly lessons to be conducted in much the same way with clear targets to aim for thus saving time and speeding up progress. A structured course of lessons, also helps to overcome the "two steps forward one step back" problem of weekly lessons by allowing you to revise your last lesson while preparing for the next. This is particularly true if the materials are also properly used by a family member or friend to provide complementary practice in between less Contact

Booking a 2 hour lesson will save you money and speed up your progress. Two hour lessons cost less and are far more productive because of the continuous unbroken time behind the wheel.
