I did 18 hours and passed in 5 months. Honestly i wasnt the best driver but i was passable and safe enough and considering how expensive driving lessons are and the fact id already spent almost £500 including the tests, i wasnt going to spend more money on it. Some people are just naturally better drivers than others but seriously, if you think you can pass don't go wasting money on more lessons than you need to.

I spent just under a grand on the whole process including lessons and tests (passed 3rd time).
I'm planning to start driving :P. I'm hopeless at getting things like this done.

I repped you when I read your first post saying you passed within 8 weeks but then I regretted it instantly when I scrolled down and saw that your failed THREE times. Give me my rep back.

Have you guys got any advise for your driving test? I've got mine coming up next week and only have 2 hours left of practice (not including hour before the test) and scared I'll forget everything and my brain will just turn to jelly!

Took me around 8 months to pass and I passed second time.
The theory is the easy part just make sure you revise a lot. Hazard perception is the easier one as if you practice it a few times you know what to expect.

How much does the Theory Test change year on year? Does it matter that I'm using a 2015 app for it?

I was on a severe time limit, but managed to learn in 3 weeks (was not working at this time). I learned the theory with about 16h of study & mock testing over 2 days, and passed with v high test scores, so I think a week would be good for someone with a normal schedule. My instructor gave me free access to 'Theory Test Pro' online which was amazing, and I also have a 2009 edition 'Driving Test success' DVD which is pretty similar.
I took 40 hrs of practical lessons intensively (2-4h a day, with break hours/days in between) including a load of mock tests and passed first time. I think your goal is certainly achievable, I'd recommend 1-2h lessons once or twice a week, and practice will DEFINITELY help you get the physical aspect of it down so you are confident for the test. Good luck!
