For an average 17 year old DSA research shows that about 40 hours of professional tuition plus additional practice provides the best chances of passing the Practical Driving Test.

All figures assume the pupil has no previous driving experience

All figures assume reasonable continuity of lessons (at least two hours per week) and no private practice.

The chart must be used as a guide only and that there is no implication that any individual should achieve the quoted figures. Some pupils will need more than others, continuity is a factor in the number of lessons needed.
