How long does it realistically take to learn to drive and pass the test?Watch
It took me about 8 months I believe, I had quite a few lessons though as my instructor was a friend of my dads and lived in the same street.
However if you start learning 2 lessons a week and plenty of practice you could easily aim to pass before christmas. I would say passing for the school start is just not quite enough time even for a very quick learner, add on lessons through to october and it looks like a more obtainable goal.
You will be very very lucky if you pass in that time, especialy at 17, and if you do will sadly most likely crash soon after.
Not true atall, I passed in about 8 weeks first time and haven't had a problem in over 12 months of driving now.
Somebody who learnt to drive on a farm and then had 12 lessons sort of thing has a lot less learning to do then somebody who has to learn what a clutch is.
Statistics show the more lessons you have the less likely you are to crash .
