Can't remember precisely how many lessons, somewhere between 25 and 30. Booked them in blocks of 5 at £100 per block, so between 500 and 600.
Combine that with the cost of the provisional licence, the theory test, the practical test, and the cost of hiring a car for the practical as my instructor went on holiday and we're looking at between £800 and £900 for the whole lot.
£240 odd, including using the car for practical test. I got a couple of lessons free for recommendations so I had 16 in total at £20 a lesson.
If you want my advice, spend the money to find a decent instructor. Don't think "well I've had one lesson i may as well continue with this guy" if you don't get on you don't get on, not all instructors click with all students. Good instructors are hard to come by.
I had 20 lessons, and i cant remember now how much each lesson cost. But I paid for them in blocks of 10 though to be fair. I also did three lessons a week for the first three weeks, then went down to two. Due to having more than one lesson a week I picked things up easier and was able to pass first time with 3 minors
No matter what though, it is going to cost a fortune lol.
Well I had double lessons a week..so £38 a week. Had like 100 lessons worth (shocking but they were broken up in my defense and a range of instructors!)..So that's £1900 (I think). Not to mention the theory test and then the actual practical test which *surprise surprise* i passed first time...
Multiply that by two for my sister who was taking lessons at the same time...my poor father . I'm not proud...
I'd genuinely advise you, if possible, to learn with your mum/dad. I also bought 5 lessons for £56, so I learnt my mirrors, blind spots, etc. Your parent's can teach you how to drive; your instructor can teach you how to pass the test
Provisional - No idea - got that over 5 years ago.
Theory Test - Approx £30 [back in 2010].
Lessons - 20 at £18 an hour [including the hour for the test]. [Amazing instructor, by the way, so if you are looking for lessons up around Durham, I'd definitely recommend.]
Test - £62.
Total - £452 [plus the provisional at whatever that cost].
I am just so pleased to have done it now. For years I had no interest in it at all. Then I decided to take lessons in October [a month or two into my pgce] and passed my test in February [after having a month/5 weeks without lessons in December].
