How many lessons do I need to pass my test in Aberdeen?

It really changes from driver to driver. When you book an Aberdeen driving instructor they will happily be able give you an estimate.

The national average is 47 hours with a driving instructor and an additional 22 hours of private practice with a family or friend are recommended.

There are a number of things you can do to help you pass your test first time:

  • Get a good driving instructor. This may go without saying, but make sure to pick a well reviewed instructor that you think would suit your personality. You're going to get on a lot better when you repect your instructors skill but can also get along with them.
  • Take lessons as close together as you can. We don't mean taking 6 hours of lessons per day (although some instructors do offer intensive driving courses), as that's not practical for most, instead we mean taking at least 1 lessons per week, but ideally 2 or 3. Take a lesson, reflect, take a lesson and continually build your understanding and skill.
  • Get out with your family or friends. The DVSA recommend learners do 22 hours of private practice on top of professional lessons. If you're considering doing this, you can get £100 discount on car insurance from MyFirstUK by quoting "GOROADIE". This can allow you to go out in your own car or a friend or family members on one policy.
  • Consider doing a mock test with a different driving instructor. The instructor you choose will likely know someone they would choose to give you a mock driving test. Don't worry, your instructor will be in the back seat the whole time.
