How Many Hours Will it Take Me to Pass My Driving Test?

www.adeptdrive.co.uk It depends on how many hours experience you have previously had,
for a complete novice aged between 17-20yrs old the national average is 40-50hrs on road experience this can be a combination of private practice and driving lessons.
These figures can be verified on the DSA website, If you really want a good chance of passing 1st time then you should target 50hrs, I would do longer than 1hr lessons the best length lesson lesson is 1.5hrs.
The longer lesson means you learn quicker, need less lessons,retain more and more importantly learn to drive at test standard for longer, this will improve your chances of passing 1st time.
The national average pass rate is 43% the 1st time pass rate is 33%, look for a driving school with a high pass rate don't just ask price. Our average pass rate is 60-70% our first time pass rate is 50%+ this is the type of pass rate you should be looking for, this will mean you found a top quality driving school.

How To Pick a Good Driving School

www.adeptdrive.co.uk Most people do not ask the right questions when choosing a driving school they only ask the price.
The questions you should ask are

1) Do you only use fully qualified Instructors not trainees?

2) What are your Pass Rates?

3) What is your hourly rate?

If you ask these questions and you get the right answers you should get a decent driving school.
The answer to question 1 should be we only use fully qualified Instructors.
The answer to question 2 should be 60-70% the national average is only 43% the best driving schools
only achieve 70% if you get a higher rate quoted I would be sceptical.
The answer to question 3 would depend on the area you live in, the average price in our area ranges from £20/hr - £22/hr just check prices in your area.
Do not assume if you pay more you will get a better instructor, for instance if you chose a national driving school you would pay more, but this would be because of their overhead costs, staff, call centers, managers etc, it is not because their Instructors are better in many cases you could get a trainee Instructor and still pay full price. Only one national driving school uses fully qualified Instructors and the name begins with A, the others do use trainees, B uses some trainees R is in fact owned by a driver training college so will have more trainees. You will find some very good local driving schools at a better price but do ask the above questions who ever you phone this should ensure you get a pretty good Instructor.
