How long does the Driving Test take?
The driving test will normally last approx 40 Minutes
How many hours of tuition will it take to pass my Driving Test?
There is not a definate answer to this question. The DSA produce statistics indicating the average is 45 hours of profesional instruction along with 22 hours of private practice. However with a very high pass rate for the last two years and a good structured approach, i can give you a good idea after the first five lessons of how long it will take.
