Driving Lesson FAQs
Yes, you can! Our Norwich 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. Take a look at our automatic driving lessons page to learn more.
We do not offer intensive driving lessons, and with good reason. It is difficult to learn to drive in just one week. Pass rates are very low for people who take intensive courses.
You will learn much more easily and effectively by taking regular driving lessons every week. Alternatively, we can arrange a semi-intensive driving course for you where you’d take a two to three hour lesson each day. We consistently deliver high pass rates with this approach because we use effective teaching practices.

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.

Thank you, John Sewell, for helping me to pass my test. Could have not done it without your expertise.
What can I say, best decision I ever made. I had tried other instructors but they all failed. I heard good things about How-2-Drive so gave them a go. After just 28 hours I now have my driving licence – job done!
I’ve just passed my driving test with How-2-Drive on my first attempt – soooo pleased! Howard, my instructor was amazing and explained things in a way I could easily understand.
Nothing was too much trouble and I really enjoyed my lessons -– thank you so much. I will now recommend all my friends.
My driving instructor Lianne is excellent! She made me feel relaxed and explained everything clearly. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for lessons in Norwich – all together how-2-drive has been fantastic!
I have just passed my driving test with How-2-Drive!. I started lessons with another driving school and they would spend most of my lesson time talking to me, I found this frustrating as I learn best by doing. I called Howard and after just one lesson I learnt so much. He put together a plan of action and after just 4 more lessons I passed my test – Amazing! I would highly recommend.
