Did it take you to learn to drive. And 1hr or 2hr lessons.

And after how many hours until you could drive safely

My first lesson was 2 hours and all others were 1 hour. I had about 20-24 lessons and I was safe after about 15.

Everyone's different. Go with your instructor as they'll soon tell you if you're safe or not.

I had so many lessons that I lost count but that was due to bad instructors. I was already halfway ready from June but I was test ready by October and I had 1.5 hour lessons twice a week.

It all depends on the individual.

I did 1 hr lessons, don't know how many in total, because your concentration wanes after time. This means you become less safe but also you're learning's less efficient, do it takes you longer to learn the same amount.

I found the most beneficial thing is to drive with supervision in-between lessons as much as possible. Driving short routes regularly rather than long drives is much more reflective of what you're likely to be doing straight after your test.

Took me about 6months of weekly-fortnightly lessons to pass my test but most of the confidence building comes once you have your liscense and are driving on your own.
