Here are some of the more frequently asked questions. Please feel free to contact us if you require further clarification or if you cannot find your question or answer here.

Q- How long will it take to learn?
A- That depends on a number of factors. How frequently you take lessons, the length of lessons, how quickly you learn, how easily you can retain, recall and demonstrate that learnt information, will you be able to get private practise between lessons? All of these factors will make a difference to your driving progress. The DVSA state that on average, learners have 52 hours with a Driving Instructor, and a further 22 hours of private practise before passing the practical test. This is though, as it states, an average. At Learn2Drive we use a variety of resources to help people learn and pass as quickly as possible.
