    I've just heard from a friend that there's a new driving test regulation in place, stating that you must take 100hours of lessons before you're allowed to take the practical exam - Is this true?

    That's ridiculous, considering some people can past a test after about 20 hours of practical lessons (at least according to some threads on here).

    It's only one of a series of ideas either the Govt. or some think tank came up with the other day to ensure new drivers are more experienced before being passed out, in the hope that less collisions will result. It'll be years before such a scheme comes into place.

    My driving instructor said to me he's already had a letter through about this (as will have every other driving instructor) informing them of the upcoming changes and their thoughts on it.

    What he did tell me is it's likely the Government are brining a "You must learn for 1 year" thing, but it wasn't specified whether that would be a lesson a week, a lesson every two weeks, ...

    The DSA site thinks good drivers will have had about 45 hours of lessons and 'plenty of practise' whatever that is meant to mean. I would have thought that 45 on its own was 'plenty of practise' if not too much. It starts getting boring after about 20, that's quite enough.
