How long will it take for me to learn to drive?

How long it takes for you to learn to drive will vary, depending on a number of factors including how often you have driving lessons and your own determination and confidence. The DVSA says on aver-age, it takes 45 hours of lessons to reach test level, and 22 hours of practising. If you would like to pass your test in a shorter amount of time, we also offer intensive driving courses.

You can take your theory test before you start your lessons or during, it’s entirely up to you. When you learn to drive with us, you will get free access to our theory study programme! We recommend doing plenty of revision before you take your test and you will need to pass your theory before you can book your practical test.

How often you have driving lessons is entirely up to you, but we would recommend 1-2 hours on a weekly basis. You can have more hours in a week or do alternate weeks – it all depends on your available time and budget. We can work around your lifestyle and availability to create a schedule that works for you.

If you book a block of ten hours, you’ll save £15 on the usual price – a great way to get your lessons locked in and to save money! Check out our prices to find out more.


I was taught by Geoff for about 2 months and I went to my test and passed the first time with this company and I would highly recommend Geoff and the company ad he teaches really well, he ensures that you end up being a driver and not a learner and i felt that is a really respectable quality when it comes to a teacher. I could not say any bad experience and was extremely happy

Alen Thomas

For any one wanting to learn to drive but not sure who to go with I definitely recommend Nayland, with his great help I passed first time and in just over three months, the lessons were great I always looked forward to them as Michael is a lovely guy and very down to earth, and up for a laugh 🙂 but he is also very patient for any one who is nervous about driving. 🙂

Harriet Osborn Davies

Thanks a lot to Dave, very calm and professional instructor. Passed after 20h, would definitely recommend.

Mikolaj Witkowski

I passed my test first time, I didn’t need to use any other instructor as Michael gave me all the advice I needed, down to earth, practical and easy to understand. While learning to drive can be stressful, Micheal made it so easy for me. I enjoyed learning and looked forward to the lessons as they were really enjoyable, if you want to learn to drive with someone that will make it enjoyable and practical Micheal is the guy! guy.

Peter Callaghan

Before having Michael as a driving instructor I was with someone else! I was given his number through a recommendation, and his lessons gave me the confidence to pass my test! Michael has great prices and deals, to suit anyone! I have now been driving a year, and I have recommended many people to go with him and they have gone on to pass very fast! 🙂

Amy Cowlin

Massive thanks to Suzanne! Amazing instructor! Helped to boost my confidence and pass my test quickly! Highly recommend!
