    I have had about 100 lessons in total, but I have not had any other practise whats so ever. Driving my dads escort wouldn't work due to practical and financial reasons.

    i was just wondering how many lessons ppl took before they passed their test?

    if i started now, wud their b a chance i wud be able to get my test by the end of september! or is that being too unrealistic?
    I had 13......and passed within 4 months of my 17th!!
    *takes a bow*
    just keep having them until you feel ready- its different for different people!

    I started driving lessons in June, and I might be able to pass before September.

    I did parallel parking today. It's not fun!

    Easier than reversing around a corner.

    I rang them up on friday and the earliest they could offer me was sometime in November, so yes unless you've booked, end of september is very unrealistic. However there are often cancellations, so if you ring up loads you might be able to bag one. As for actually knowing your stuff, well if it's an automatic it'll be easy, if it's a manual it'll probably take you longer than a month and a half.

    You got one in November! I booked mid July and earliest I got was 1st December.

    Statistics: Average man takes 36 hours lessons before passing, average woman takes 50! Current pass rate for tests is 43% (all tests, so first time would be lower)

    I have had 14 lessons and am pretty ready, the automated system to get a cancellation is so long though.
