    I started driving lessons when Ryan was 6 weeks old (he's now 4 and a half months). I aim to take my practical the end of March/beginning of April, and took my theory in December. So assuming I pass first time, about 5 months ish...

    i started learning on my birthday when i turned 17, (jan 05)
    i didnt have any proper lessons.. my stepdad taught me. (we went out every day though for hours at a time) and i joined a learners forum which was a great help)
    then i passed my theory in march first time, then failed my first test in april, and passed my second in May.
    so 4 months in total

    this was the forum i used

    I took my theory in September 96 (was one of the first in the country to take it too as they were introduced in the July).. Started lessons in the October, and passed on the 20th of December 1996... first time.

    Mind you that was 11 years ago now.. :rotfl: :rotfl:

    My driving instructor was brilliant... but he was arrested a few years later for abusing little boys as he was a scout master..

    He never tried anything with me, but it was really shocking :shock: :shock: :shock:
