Driving Lesson FAQs
Yes, you can! We now have automatic instructors for the following locations:
- Norwich — our instructor Andrew Hazlewood offers driving tuition in his automatic Renault Clio. Andrew covers Norwich and the surrounding areas up to a 10-mile radius from the city centre.
- Great Yarmouth — Keith Smith offers automatic driving lessons in Yarmouth and Gorleston. His brand new Vauxhall Astra even has heated seats!
Yes! We are happy to announce that we are now able to offer intensive driving lessons in and around the Norwich area.
If you are a beginner we can teach you to drive to a high standard in around 30 hours. By this point you’ll be ready to pass your test.
If you already have some driving and road experience we’ll aim to do it even quicker than that!
This is easily one of the most common questions we get asked at How-2-Drive.
We know you want to learn how to drive in as few lessons as possible. We understand that you don’t want to feel rushed.
But at the same time, you also don’t want your tuition to drag on for longer than necessary.
Clearly-Structured Driving Lessons
At How-2-Drive we deliver well-structured lessons that have clear objectives. After all, learning to drive is not cheap and we want you to get good value for your money.
According to the DVSA, it takes an average of 47 hours to pass the practical driving test. And that’s for learners who are sensible enough to study with an Approved Driving Instructor. On top of this, the DVSA says an additional 20 hours of private driving practice is also required.
How Many Driving Lessons Can We Save You?
But who wants to be average? By benefitting from our specially-designed Driver Training System our pupils take 17 hours less than the DVSA average!
Our tried-and-tested system can reduce the time it will take you to learn to drive. We consistently bring our pupils up to pass standard within 30 to 40 hours.
That’s up to 17 hours less than the average learner driver — saving you time and money!
You will be given your own Learning to Drive Handbook when you start taking driving lessons with us. Your instructor will use it to record your progress after each lesson. This will give you a record of how well you are doing and what you need to learn or practice next.
You will also be encouraged to keep a reflective log. You can use this to review your own learning so that you can discuss your objectives with your driving instructor at the start of each lesson.
We’re delighted to offer discounts to our learner drivers.
For starters, you’ll get your first hour free when you book your first two-hour lesson. Then if you decide you’re happy taking lessons with us we’ll knock £2 off our normal hourly rate when you buy a block of 10 hours in one go.
Book your first driving lesson now to get started.
Yes of course, provided its within our local area and you make your instructor aware before the lesson.

Wow! It’s official – I can drive! Howard is the best instructor, because of him I just passed first time, and it only took me 20 hours!
I just personally wanted to give you a message to praise one of your driving instructors. Mike Brett has been a great driving instructor who helped me pass last week. Even when I felt nervous or felt like I couldn’t pass my test, Mike kept praising and motivating me and I am glad he did as I wouldn’t have passed my test… I am very happy I chose How-2-Drive. Megan.
I joined How-2-Drive just a few weeks before my test. My other driving school kept letting me down. I was so pleased James at How-2-Drive could help me at such short notice. With just a few lessons he sorted out my manoeuvres and roundabouts – I could not have passed without him.
After having lessons with another school I decided to try How-2-Drive as my best friend was with them. She was right, they are much better and today I passed my test, at last!
My instructor was the best.
I was a very nervous learner, as I was involved in a collision when I was young. Howard my instructor built up my confidence and helped me feel in control. Today I passed my test and I can’t thank him enough.
