How long will it take me to learn to drive?
Use the ‘rule of thumb’ calculator below to estimate an approximation of how many hours of driving lessons (on average) you’ll likely need in order to pass your driving test.
Please remember, that different people have different learning abilities, and the guide below is just that, it’s a guide. Some will learn to drive in a shorter time span and some might take longer.
NB For an average 17-year-old DVSA research shows that about 40hrs of professional training plus additional practice provides the best chance of passing. All figures assume reasonable continuity of lessons (at least a two-hour session per week) and no private practice.
