According to a recent Goverment survey people learning to drive take on average 67 hours of driving tuition each and take on average 14 months to pass the driving test.
Using the DSA instructional sylabus, alongside DPA's own system we are pleased to say that our answer to the question how many lessons will I need? is very different
So what is the current average at DPA?
Average Number of Lessons to Test Pass.
Average Time Taken to Test Pass
22 weeks **
The Current National Average for 1st Time Passes given by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is 47.5%**
DPA FIRST TIME PASS RATE
DPA instructors use the proven ‘A’ Card system as a key part of your tuition for driving. The result is you learn skills and procedures in between your lessons, enabling you to learn faster for less money. The system has been praised by driving Instructors, test examiners and road safety officers and builds as you progress towards your test.
DPA strongly recomend that at least 2 hours tuition a week is taken, in our experience this will reduce the total tuition time required to attain test standard. Intensive courses are available but we believe the maximum lesson time each day should be limited to 2 hours.
Only pupils who have trained with DPA from their first lesson to test pass are used for the calculations above. Figures are calculated over a rolling 12 month period. Excludes lessons booked for the purpose of taking the practical test.
It is never our intention to mislead our pupils and we point out that the figure for lessons taken is an average, dependant on ability, number of lessons taken each week and speed of learning, some pupils will take more than the average and others less.
