    Not at all. An hour or two in the weekend won't let you fail. It isn't like having a part time job where you'll be working for 9 hours so shouldn't be a distraction.

    OP do your driving lessons in A2. My parents wouldn't let me do it so I've only been having them in the Christmas holidays/ summer holidays when I come back from uni and my lesson has become completely fragmented so I forget what I've learnt so it'll take me even longer to pass

    No. If anything its a good idea, something to take your mind off work. You should only really do 1-2 hours a week so it will only have a positive impact.

    For me personally, it got too much. Applying to uni, redoing PS about 10 times, mock exams, assessments, revisions, uni stress, revising for theory, and practise in free periods just isn't the case.

    If you have a lot going on then, I don't recommend it. It's also pointless if you won't have a car until your 25 or something!
