Passing The test

If you want to pass your driving test you need some real insiders information

The test itself is just a safety test, nothing else. If you are safe and can show it then you will be going to pass. As we all know taking a driving test is not a straight forward formality.  The overall pass rate in the country from 2014 to 2015 was 49.1 %. So as you can see less than 50% of people pass their test.

One of the first questions an instructor is usually asked, is how many driving lessons do we need to pass a driving test? According to the driving standards agency their recommendation is around 40 hours with an instructor and if possible include more hours with family and friends.

There are many factors that can decide on how many driving lessons you actually need, to get to the driving test standard. For example your age, any previous experience or even riding a bike or moped, overall concluding if you have any road experience this can help you.  Hand eye coordination, determination are also factors on learning. Choosing a reputable driving instructor is recommended, as overall structured and planned lessons are very important and when you get to a reasonable standard your instructor should start to give you mock driving assessments, these will help you prepare for your driving test and will bring out your strengths and weaknesses and will provide an idea of what training is required. It would also be recommended to plan your  driving test in advance as there can be long waiting lists from 6 to 8 weeks for driving tests (in Leeds) depending on  where your lessons are based.
