Learning to drive for the first time is exciting, but did you know the Driving Standards Agency reckons it takes from 55 to 70 hours of lessons before students are ready for their driving test? That’s a lot of lessons! Everyone wants to learn to drive much faster than this, so here are a few tips and tricks to getting out in your own four wheels in record time.
Don’t learn the theory just for the test
Learning to drive is not just about the car; you need to know the road procedures, road markings and sign posts when you are finally driving solo. Learning the theory may seem dull, but remember that once you have passed the Theory and Hazard Perception test you can concentrate harder on the practical side of driving. Knowing your theory and passing the test early is necessary for shaving valuable weeks off your learning.
Book lessons for more than an hour a time
To really see the benefit of your driving lessons, students should consider 2 hour sessions rather than 1 hour sessions, a few times a week. Those who want to learn faster can take advantage of a 2 hour session by learning a manoeuvre and practicing it all in one go rather than splitting this lesson into theory and practice in 2 separate sessions.
Practice makes perfect
It’s time to call in some favours or offer to do more chores for family and friends with a full licence. Being insured as a learner on a car to practice outside of your lessons is a sure-fire way to quicker success. Remember you will need a full licence holder who has three years’ experience and is over the age of 21 with you when driving at all times and L plates clearly displayed.
