How many hours you need to pass your driving test depends upon a number of factors.

What are they?

It depends on how quickly you pick up new skills, what standard your driving is at before you begin your lessons and the quality of instruction you receive.... That is where we come in.

"Research shows that learners who have a combination of professional instruction and private practice do better at the driving test. On average, those who pass have had 44 hours of professional instruction and 22 hours of private practice."

1 hour driving lessons

This is the traditional method of learning to drive. The advantage is the low weekly cost but, with only one hour of practice at a time, progress can be slow. We see a higher dropout rate amongst students taking one hour lessons and, in our experience, it ultimately costs more to get to test standard.

Typical training duration: approx 9 months - 1 year based on one lesson per week, or 4 - 6 months based on two 1 hour lessons per week.

1½ hour driving lessons

If you feel that 1 hour is too short and 2 hours is too long, our 1½ hour lesson is the perfect solution. Timescales to reach test standard lie between those quoted for 1 hour and 2 hour lessons.

2 hour driving lessons

Our most popular training method, with a much lower dropout rate as students can see how quickly they’re progressing. A higher percentage of the lesson time is productive and a discounted hourly rate is also available to help keep your costs down.

Typical training duration: approx 4 - 6 months based on one 2 hour lesson per week, or 2 - 3 months based on two 2 hour lessons per week.

10 hour block bookings

This method of learning to drive enables you to take advantage of our Block Booking discounts. Lessons are paid upfront and can be taken in five 2 hour blocks.

ProScot Semi-Intensive Courses

Learn to drive in 6 weeks

This style of course is becoming increasingly popular with our students, especially those who find that a 1 or 2 hour lesson each week is not enough but our intensive "Learn to drive in a week" courses are too much. Instead, why not opt for a semi-intensive approach to learning? By taking a 2 hour lesson at least three times per week, you should be able to learn to drive in about 6 weeks.
