The Driving Standards Agency recommends that most learners take at least 45 hours of professional tuition lessons and at least 20 hours with friends and family to be at a level to take the
Practical Driving Test.
The average time taken for learners to reach the RoSPA Advanced Test safe driving standard (the standard to which we teach) with accelerate trainer/coaches is currently 42 hours. As all learners are different, some will reach this standard more quickly than others. If the learner driver can undertake at least as much private practice as professional tuition and concurrently then we expect the confidence and competent levels to be much higher than with professional tuition alone.
Having completed your practical programme you will:
- Be in a postion to take your practical driving test. Your driving test will start with an eyesight check and some vehicle safety questions. The driving part of your test will last about 40 minutes. Throughout the test your examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving, including when you are carrying out the set exercises. You can make up to 15 driving faults and still pass the test (16 or more results in failure). However, if you commit just one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test.
- Be Pass Plus certified - this provides recognition that you have been taught to drive safely in the following
- Large towns/cities
- Rural roads
- At night
- All weather condititions
- Dual carriageways
- Be in a position to take the RoSPA Advanced Driving Test
