How many lessons will you need?
This question is hard to answer if you are part way through your training, but in general the Driver And Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) recommends 46 hours of training with a qualified Bournemouth driving instructor and 22 hours of private practice for you are ready to take your test. This ensures you have a solid understanding of the intricacies of road law and situational awareness, and not just simply being able to drive the vehicle.
It is always recommended to start your first driving lessons with our Bournemouth driving instructor, instead of private practice with the family vehicle or your own vehicle. This ensures that you don’t pick up bad habits from the start as undoing a bad habit is harder than not learning them at all.
The total number of driving lessons you will need to pass will depend on your ability to develop your driving skills – some find it easy and learn quickly, others may struggle and need more time. Our Bournemouth driving instructor will match your pace, so your abilities will be tested continuously to optimise development, but you will never be made to attempt a manoeuvre that you are not ready for or are not confident enough to try.
