As soon as you turn 17 in the UK, you can start to take driving lessons. The aim of driving lessons is to give you the skills needed to pass the driving test.
Where can I take driving lessons?
You can take driving lessons anywhere in the UK, and the chances are there are a number of instructors operating in your town. The government has set up a website allowing you to find approved driving instructors, which you can access here.
How much do driving lessons cost?
There is no minimum or maximum cost for learning to drive, as most instructors set their own prices. However, the average cost of a driving lesson in the UK is £24.
We contacted the British School of Motoring (BSM) and RED driving school, two of the largest providers in the UK, for their average prices.
For a 10-hour package of tuition, RED driving school charges £276, while BSM gave us a quote of £230 for the same time.
According to consumer website safedrivingforlife.info, the average motorist will spend £2582 on learning to drive. Of that, £960 will be spent on lessons, while the other costs include getting a provisional driving licence, fees for taking the practical and theory tests and revision materials.
How many driving lessons will I need to pass?
This will vary from person to person. There is no minimum number of lessons, or minimum number of hours you need to spend behind the wheel in order to pass your driving test. How many lessons you require will depend on how quickly you learn the skills needed to pass the driving test.
The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) says that on average, you are likely to need 47 hours of instruction before passing your test, backed by up to 22 hours of private practice.
What about private practice?
Most driving schools recommend that you practice your skills in between official driving lessons. You can practice with a friend or family member who is over 21, is qualified to drive themselves, and has had a full driving licence for three years. If you’re practising in someone else’s car, you need to make sure that you’re insured to drive it.
You must also put two Learner or L plates on the car, one at the front and one at the back, to identify you as a learner driver.
Why do you need driving lessons?
Driving lessons are designed to help you pass the driving test, and without passing the driving test you are not allowed to drive a car in the UK, it’s as simple as that.
When you’ve passed your driving test, you might want to consider doing the Pass Plus scheme, which teaches you more skills to cope with different driving situations
For most people the answer is yes. At the end of your first day because you will be taking loads in you will be tired, but as each day unfolds you will find that you will feel more lively and everything becomes easier. Remember that intensive courses are proven to be the fastest way for learners of all ages when learning to drive and are now common place in the UK. Police drivers, the Armed Forces, LGV drivers, Bus drivers and even Driving Examiners will have been trained in this way.Learning with an intensive driving course means that your training will be over a few days not many months.Everything you learn will stay fresh in your mind encouraging a new confidence in your driving to grow.There are many ways to learn to drive; intensive courses are just one of them. Your course will probably be one of the biggest investments you make this year. You will naturally want the best that money will buy in driver training and vehicles.
Don’t think that finding the cheapest price is finding the best deal you can.
Many students think of their course only as a lump sum of money that is spent. If you compare the cost of learning with the first years insurance cover for a small car for a 17-18 year old male. To insure a car on 3rd party insurance the average cost will be OVER £1,200 for the year.
The learning to drive part is the cheapest part of your driving career.
Why choose an intensive course (Crash Course) ?
Intensive driving courses are becoming more and more popular within the learner driver. Recent government studies have concluded that such courses are the most efficient, convenient and cost effective method of learning to drive. The main advantage of using our structured driving courses is that you are condensing many months of conventional weekly driving lessons into a small period of time, usually within a matter of one or two days. Because you are out on the road all day, you spend much less time ‘picking up from where you left off’, and more time concentrating on your driving.
Excellent Driving School offers intensive courses with fully qualified and very experienced instructors. These courses run from 5 to 21 days. The last day of each course is just the driving test day. All our course prices include the practical driving test fee. This option is suitable for those students who have already passed their theory test and want to pass their driving test over a short time frame. For those that live a long way from the Worcester area, we can help you to arrange local accommodation for the duration of your course.
Everyone is different so we always insist you take a 2 hour pre-course assessment to help us assist you to select the most suitable course. Whether you are a total beginner or if you have had any on/off road experience then the assessment lesson will ensure you undertake the right course.
A normal days training for an intensive course includes 4 to 5 hours of driving tuition spread over the day and also time allowed for breaks. For those who are unable to take an intensive course due to work/college commitments but want to pass their test quickly then we can offer a semi-intensive course. Please ring for details.
There are lots of driving schools offering intensive courses. TheDSA say that on average a beginner requires 45 hours professional tuition combined with some private practice. We advise you to be very wary of any schools not offering courses that provide 45 hours or more tuition.
Although these courses are designed for those who have passed their theory test we can book out days in advance. This is ideal for someone with time off available that might want to put in a lot of hours. This pupil can then either book an intensive course once they have passed their theory test or return back to their weekly driving instructor.
Don’t leave things until the last minute to organise. Some candidates are left with no option but to do everything in a week due to their theory or license expiring. Many of these candidates resort to taking residential courses, where a test is promised at the end of the week’s training. Sounds perfect yes? Until you get there and find that, not only are you sharing your training time with another candidate in the car, meaning you only get half the training time you’ve paid for, but at the end of the week your test is actually in a different location altogether. What is the problem with taking your test in a different location, after all if you can drive you can drive anywhere right? To give yourself the best chance of passing your test it makes more sense to take your driving test around the area of where you have been taking your lessons, complex junctions will be more familiar and you will have practised your manoeuvres around actual test routes. No two towns / cities are the same, for example Sheffield and Manchester have tram routes, when you did your training in a small town or seaside town did they teach you how to deal with trams? Unlikely. Find out more information before you commit to taking such a course.
The first question we get asked time and time again is, “am I guaranteed to pass at the end of the course?” Many people believe that simply taking an intensive driving course is enough to get them a driving licence. In fact some people believe that at the end of an intensive driving course you simply receive a certificate to say you’ve taken the course, here’s your driving licence!
The truth, of course, is that ALL driving tests are conducted in accordance with the DSA and by a highly qualified DSA approved examiner. No driving school can conduct a driving test, naturally if they did every candidate would pass regardless of their ability and there would be a lot of dangerous drivers on the roads today! With this in mind then, absolutely no driving school can guarantee a pass at the end of an intensive driving course. You need to demonstrate to the DSA examiner that you are worthy of a licence and only then will you pass. Moreover, the driving test is exactly the same as any other driving test taken by any other candidate and so you will not be treated differently just because you have worked intensively.
A further myth centres round booking the driving test. Some candidates believe that driving schools can leapfrog the booking system and get driving tests quicker than the average person. This is sadly not true. The DSA takes data protection very seriously and has a fair booking system, where only one test per person can be held at any one time. This means that driving schools cannot hold driving tests on behalf of candidates in the anticipation of them taking a test, and it can only be assumed that any driving school who states they have a guaranteed test for you within a week is either booking tests under other candidates names and changing details, which is bad, or they are not guaranteeing that your test will be in your local area. Taking a test in an area that is unfamiliar to you is more likely to result in a fail as you do not possess local knowledge of the area.
