Why 2 Hours are Best
How can you save money by taking 2 hour lessons?
U Steer knows that learning to drive can cost a pretty penny, however here is a breakdown on how you can make your endeavour to learn to drive more affordable.
According to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), on average, it takes around 45 hours of lessons to learn to drive, with an addition of 22 hours of private practise. But don't take this to heart. Some drivers may need less, and some drivers may need more.
Let's say a person requires a total 50 hours of driving lessons. They have the choice of taking 1 hour or 2 hour lessons. If you look at the graph below, you will notice that each 1 or 2 hour lesson requires approximately 25 minutes of time where the lesson is not focused on the objective.
Therefore, if a person chooses 1 hour lessons, they will only benefit from 35 minutes of quality driving. Ultimately a person who chooses 2 hour lessons will have a greater advantage by experiencing 1 hour and 35 minutes of quality driving.
In conclusion a person who takes 2 hour lessons will have more experience on the road and we find that there is no subsitute for experience, which is fundamental to passing your driving test first time!
