I started out with 2hr lessons and thought they were fine. Being new to it all meant you were able to cover plenty of theory but also drive around for a fair amount of time.
Having said that when i went back to school after the summer i went to 1hr lessons, mainly because i had little time during the week due to school work etc etc.

Looking back i found the 2hr lessons rather draining after a while, at first i thought yeh fine..agreed with my instructor that its best and id get more done but now im not so sure. Im actually finding that im doing better in my 1hr lessons than my 2hr ones...guess its just different for different people though.

I do agree with this - after a while, the 2hr lessons do start to drain you a bit, especially when you've driven around the city twice already and you still have 30mins to go lol! They are good to begin with, and certainly good I think if you don't have much free time except for like one afternoon a week, but otherwise I do agree with dropping the hours once you're reasonably comfortable with general driving

I'm having an hour for now, but nxt term at the end of this block, I'll probably moved up to 2 hours, but hopefully I'll be nearly ready for my test then so it'll just be extra practice as I can't practice outside of my lesson! But it does depend on how much uni work I get and how stressed I am in the run up to my exams/end of term!

The instructors at my driving school do 90mins too!

I've always had the 2 hours - i find they are really helpful, lots of time to practise etc. Also if the safe place for you to drive initially is 10 minute drive away for instance, thats 20 mins out of your lesson where your not driving in the first few weeks. I find that having 2 hours when your approaching your test is good, since you can practice a couple of test routes per lesson.

What you can do is have the 2 hours, see how you feel about them, if they are too much put them down to 1.5 hours.

You should just offer to take his kid to football for him! Bit of extra excitement - having a kid in the back of your car whilst driving. I find it exciting enough to have my Mam in the back of my Dad's car (lol at how bad that sounds), never mind having a whiney kid!
Ooh, I've never had another passenger before, could be interesting, if only he wasn't taking him to wolverhampton for football! 7th lesson is prolly a bit early for the motorway haha
