How long does it take to learn to drive

The following information has been released by the DVSA

How long does it take to learn to drive

There’s no minimum number of lessons someone must have or hours you must practise driving. How many lessons someone needs will depend on how quickly they learn. 

45 hours

of driving lessons with a driving instructor on average to pass

22 hours

of extra private practice without a instructor on average to pass

Research shows that, on average, it takes people 45 hours of driving lessons with a driving instructor plus 22 hours of private practice to pass their test. But those who manage 100 hours of driving lessons plus practice are much safer on the road after their test.

51 out of every 100 

driving tests were failed 

in Great Britain during August 2023

If your not ready to pass, it’s best for you to get advice from your instructor about moving the test back. 

It’s the best way of getting your independence as soon as possible
