47 hours of lessons
Believe it or not, Noel Gaughan, director of Intensive Courses has people ringing up looking to book their test after only 10 hours of driving lessons or after having had no lessons at all. “It’s about every fifth call,” he says. “The shocking part is it’s often their parents ringing up, who probably ought to know better.” Turns out, on average, a learner driver needs 47 hours of lessons before they are ready to take a test.
