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

There’s no way to predict, but the national average is 47 hours worth of lessons with your driving instructor. That might seem like a lot, but many instructors deliver 2 hour lessons, so you could mean only doing around 24 lessons and if you have 2 lessons a week, you could pass your test within 3 months.

It’s also recommended you spend 22 hours practicing with a friend or family member. You can find out more about driving lesson private practice here.

Here's how to help you pass your test first time:

  • Get a good driving instructor that fits your style. A well reviewed instructor that you think would suit your personality will give you a lot more confidence when you're behind the wheel.
  • Take lessons as close together as possible. Ideally 2 or 3 lessons per week will give you plently of practice, as well as giving you time to reflect on previous lessons.
  • Get out with your family or friends. The DVSA recommend learners do 22 hours of private practice on top of professional lessons.
  • Do a mock test with a different driving instructor to get a feel for what it will really be like on the day. Ask your driving instructor to set this up when you're getting close to sitting your test. Don't worry, your instructor will be in the back seat the whole time.
