Learner driver insurance...
As a Driving Standards Approved (DSA) qualified driving instructor one of the most common questions I am asked by pupils is how many lessons will I need to pass my test.
This is not an easy question to answer as every pupil is different. Your age can be a big factor as younger learners generally will pass sooner than older ones. A formula to give you a rough idea based on your age is:
Hours required = Age x 1.5
If you have ridden a motorbike or moped on the road this will shorten the length of time required to pass as you will have gained some road knowledge.
So, initially it is difficult to say exactly how many lessons you will require. Once you start your lessons we will then be able to have a better more accurate idea of the number of lessons required.
To help you practice your driving and pass your test quicker we recommend that if at all possible you practice driving in your own or family car. However, this can be expensive to have you added as a driver to any existing family or friends insurance and may effect any no claims bonus if you have an accident and have to claim. To overcome this we have partnered with Collingwood Learner Insurance who offer insurance for the individual learner, so in the event of an accident your existing no claims bonus is unaffected.
