Seem a bit high?

There are a number of things you can do to help keep the cost down:

  • Picking the cheapest driving instructor is a red herring. Does your chosen instructor have great reviews, do they seem like a good fit for you? An instructor that gives you confidence will a far greater cost saver.
  • Book bulk lessons. Many instructors offer discounts when you buy 10 or more lessons at once. Since you now know it takes around 47 lessons to pass your test, you know you can afford to get a few lessons booked in. Many instructors give refunds on any unused lessons if you pass early, too.
  • If you get our in your own time between lessons (check with you instructor to make sure they think you're ready), you'll find you gain more skill and confidence behind the wheel.
  • Aim to pass first time. Sitting the driving test is expensive and there's no limits on how many times you can take the test. That can sound good, but it also means you can waste money trying and trying when you should spend more time on lessons and practicing in your own time to make sure you're the best you can be.
