What are the benefits of using a driving school or an instructor?
The benefits of using a driving school or instructor include possibly passing your test faster, a higher standard of tuition, tailored lessons and the fact that most have already got the insurance side of things covered.
On average, it takes a learner driver around 47 hours of expert instruction (plus another 22 hours of private practice) to get to test standard.
A qualified instructor will have taken tough practical and theory tests. They're also regularly assessed to ensure they're able to offer a high standard of tuition.
They'll know exactly what you'll be examined on in the practical and theory tests and will be able to tailor your tuition to get you to the required standard efficiently. Importantly, they won't teach you any bad habits that could unwittingly trip you up in the test itself.
