How long does it take to learn to drive? That really is the million-dollar question!


It varies so much from person to person that it really can take anywhere from 20 to 50+ hours of professional tuition. An average novice driver probably takes around 40 hours to cover the full driving syllabus, as recommended by the DSA.


It is important to point out however that my job as a professional Driving Instructor is to teach you how to drive safely and competently. The driving test is merely a hurdle before you can get your full driving licence.


I will not allow anyone to sit a driving test if I do not consider that they meet the required standard.
