How Many Driving Lesson's Will I Need?
One of the most common questions asked to any driving instructor is “How many driving lessons will I need?”
Our aim is to get you on the road as quickly as possible whilst ensuring that you are a safe driver and thanks to the high quality of all our driving instructors in South West London and Surrey, your driving instructor will be able to accurately predict how many beginner driving lessons you will need right after your first driving lesson which you can book for just £10.
On average a total of 45 hours, total driver training time/lessons are required, with half of those hours in private driving lessons. Should you wish to learn in the quickest possible time, take a look at our intensive driver training courses in London.
