Driving Lesson FAQs

Can I Take Automatic Driving Lessons?

Yes, you can! We now have automatic instructors for the following locations:

Do You Offer Intensive Driving Lessons?

Yes! We are happy to announce that we are now able to offer intensive driving lessons in and around the Norwich area.

How Long Will it Take to Pass My Test?

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!

How Many Driving Lessons Will I Need Before I Take My Test?

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!

How Will I Know How I’m Getting On With My Lessons?

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.

What Discounts Are There For Learner Drivers?

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.

5/5

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.

5/5

Absolutely fantastic instructor! Sally made me feel so comfortable from the moment I first started my lessons, patience of a saint! Only thing I am gutted about is not seeing her weekly anymore! Cannot fault her or recommend enough! Thank you for helping me!

Rowland is the best – thank you! Passed my test with just 3 faults after 18 hours with him!

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.
