How long will it take me to pass my test?

According to the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency the average person needs around 45 hours of professional tuition and around 20 hours of practice with family or friends before they’re ready to take their practical driving test. This is only an average though and some pupils pass sooner, it just depends on the individual as everyone is different.
