There is a large volume of information to assimilate during an intensive course so some people will find that this route does not work for them. In addition, time needs to be allocated in advance because the lessons will be packed into around one week, with the maximum number of hours receiving instruction usually being set at five per day.


The average number of lessons it takes to pass a driving test is usually around 30, however some people will do it in as little as 20 and some will do it in as many as 60. It will depend on personal aptitude but could also be dependent on budget as some students find they need to take their lessons spaced further apart due to the cost involved and therefore may require more time at the start of each lesson to recap the previous lesson, thereby extending the amount of time being spent engaged in tuition.
