    £25 an hour, about 14 hours.

    I'd been driving off road for years and had a fair bit of bike experience on the roads. If you have no prior experience then you will probably need longer.

    Bear in mind people may have had more time in a car with their parents, and some will try and impress everyone by saying they had about 2 hours and passed first time...

    ~20 pounds an hour, spent about 400 pounds in total. Had a two hour lesson each week.
    Did loads of practice in my dad's car though too - I think I did about 65 hours practice in total

    Ouch, so expensive!

    Just got a quote, £22 an hour. and another is doing an offer for 10 lessons for £99 (or 20 for £289), then £21 per hour afterwards.

    Ho hum! Expensive!

    Guess, 30-40 hours ish is what I should look at?

    I had 43 hours over a 5 month period. My first 10 lessons were £175, then £200 for 10 after that, or £100 for 5 lessons , alternatively £25 an hour/lesson if not block buying. I did 2 one hour lessons per week then after around 20 lessons did two hour lessons until my test - passed first time!
