    my mama had a win at bingo and is using the whole lot to give me driving lessons, pay for my theory and test!! bless her :d hehe

    For all you that have passed how many lessons did it take you roughly?

    i want to set a realistic target to have passed by!

    I passed after 15hours of lessons, first time too, but I know alot of people who have 50hours worth and still failed their test 3 times. It's all very individual as to how quick you pick it up.

    A tip though, gert the interactive CD for the theory test It will help you with the 'Hazard perception' test too as you can practice it. Get a Highway Code book too. Usually only a couple of quid from a garage x

    It was sooooooo long ago as I am an old fart but I reckon I took about 10-15 I think and passed on the second attempt.

    Good luck :)

    I can't really remember, can't remember what happened yesterday let alone 12 years ago! :lol: but I think I had 10 lessons with one instructor, who was crappier than crap ( I asked him when he thought i'd be ready for my test and he said ' How should I know' !!!!!!!) so I changed and i've got a feeling I had about another 10 lessons with him and then passed first go :D

    Good Luck with your driving

    my mum had lessons every week for years and years and still never passed - she used to crap herself and stop the car whenever there was a car coming the other way. She gave up when they introduced the theory test so she still can't drive.

    I passed on my 17th birthday, first time, but I'd been driving with my dad on private roads since i could reach the pedals (he wanted a boy!!). My dad passed his the day after his 17th so i had to beat him :wink:

    Don't be nervous and you'll be fine. good luck!!
