Generally if you only have one hour driving tuition per week, it will take you approximately 6-7 months to get to the test stage. However, if your budget and time allows you to, you can speed up the process and in various ways.
Pass Plus is a voluntary scheme that offers many unique benefits to newly qualified drivers. Newly qualified drives are much more vulnerable than they realise, and are more likely to have an accident within their first two years of driving than at any other time in their driving career. The aim of Pass Plus is to enable the new driver to develop their existing ability and to acquire new skills, thus reducing the risk of accidents. Another major benefit of Pass Plus is that it enables the driver to qualify for cheaper car insurance, with up to a 30% reduction. The actual syllabus consists of 6 modules and a minimum of 6 hours must be completed.
As well as intensive driving courses, weekly hour tuition is also available.
