    i had loads of lessons.
    depends how fast you learn, driving isnt really that hard. its drving the "right" way thats hard. so if you try doing everything the "right" way. like make looking in mirrors obvious and stuff...then maybe...

    PS: i dont know where abouts you live, but i doubt you'll get in the queue though. loads of people waiting fot tests. thats whats its like where i live.

    Someone once told me you need at least as many lessons as your age in years. That could be nonsense though. You could probably do it in a lot less than that if you cram a load into a short space of time.
    he he, that would be 18 (sory picked it up wrong!!!) lessons then!
    hopefully i'll try and fit in 2 lessons a week and see how it goes!
    the sooner i pass the sooner i can buy a car!

    i dont know where you are in london, but im in the inner city (well, kinda) so the waiting times are longer. out in the suburbs (Barnet, for example) the waiting times are a bit less (not as low as in wales, though)

    Thats pretty good. I can't even book my test till 31st August (theory date), so by then it'll be about January time, probably in the lovely snow/ice.

    i took 4 lessons.

    i learnt how to drive with my dad.

    i think that however bad an instructor my dad was it's better than paying £300 for lessons any day.
