Thats not necessarily true at all, it's what they say to people who fail first time to make them feel better...

55 - 60 lessons?

There is seriously no need for that amount, that muast have cost heaps! I started off with my parents and when i got the hang of things I had a few lessons and sat my test.

Muchos cheaper.

You may have had 15 minors, but as mentioned earlier, if you get 3+ in one area it is considered a major and you'll fail.


Different people learn in different spaces of time. Personally, i don't have the luxury of a family car in general or for extra practice. If i did i'd almost certianly take advantage of it like you did. It's an expensive business so anything that cuts the learning time down cant be bad. Thinknig about it i've easily spent £900 so far and unfortuantely for me, it's all came out of my own pocket

I've had 42 lessons and have a further 5 hours worth before my test, which is in two weeks. In the alst few weeks i've certianly become a much stronger driver. Confidence was a huge problem to begin with which my instructor was keen to pick up on at the end of EVERY lesson, it has recently massively improved though, sparking a much better driving performance. I really hope I pass.

Good luck to anyone sitting their tests, passed mine in January and I'm delighted that I never have to take another driving lesson ever again. They must be among the most dull things in history.

I'm currently booking my theory, and will hopefully be sitting my practical in June. By then, I'll have around 20 lessons under my belt. So far, I've only had 6 or 7, but I'm beginning to gain confidence and am feeling pretty comfortable in my instructor's wee Corsa....which is more than can be said about my Dad's big Avensis hatchback diesel. rolleyes.gif Ruddy nightmare to drive that beast! wink.gif

Failed me for "moving off without control"... had some old examiner who might as well retire. Claimed there was WHEEL SPIN and TORQUE STEERING as I moved off... wtf... WHEEL SPIN!?!?! Gave me 4 minors for the same mistake. I feel really angry. Basically he failed me for gettin from 0 to 30 in about 4 seconds. Instructor says it was very unfair. O well, can't argue wid em u kno. mad.gif Only consolation is no majors.

oh man sorry to hear sad.gif Complain or something.

but remember, when you become a driver, the wheel spins are one of the cooler parts thumbsup.gif

Torque steering - that sounds cool as well, and 0-30 in 4 seconds - awesome (that requires goood geer shifitng)

nah you'll pass next time, and well done for no majors
