I’ve done 40 hours with practice at home every day and I’m a month away from my test still. Unless you’ve done A LOT private practice I highly doubt it. I mean go for it but don’t be surprised if you don’t pass, there’s a lot to know.
Good luck

Yeah.
Unless you're exceptionally good, no. Most people say the average is 40, however my instructor said 20-24 should be enough. I passed with around 24. Any less and i wouldn't have been ready at all.

How many hours a lesson?
Average for most people is 40 hours.
Are you doing any practice outwith lessons? If not then I doubt its enough

I don't think that 10 hours is enough to get to the level to pass a test unless you are really good or have driving experience from living and working on a farm. It would be best to book more hours but it would be good to check before hand whether you can get a refund for unused hours as you might book more hours than needed or the driving school your using might not have instructors which you like or get on with so might need to change driving schools.

If you can stay with the same instructor as when you pass if they still do the passplus course the instructor might just sign you off on it for less than what it would cost you to actually do as the instructor knows your driving competance and know that it would be a waste of time to teach you to a level and understanding that you already are.

That's fine. Sometimes it takes people longer. It's better you take longer to learn than pass early and be a dangerous driver.

It took me 19 months of weekly lessons of 15-2 hours per week to pass so not likely.

40 hours would take like a year to do! How long did it take for you?

From June until January. I only did 1 hour a week though, and had a few weeks here and there without a lesson due to holidays etc.

Wow you must’ve had a good ass driving instructor! I hope to do only 25 hours or less too. It’s automatic you done right? It can’t be that hard to learn how to switch a few buttons and drive right?

Took me around 25-26, from a base level of zero driving experience, including one failed test. If you have some ability already 10 might do, but I'd be very impressed if anyone could go from absolute beginner to passing in 10 lessons.

It’s weird cause when my grandad learnt to drive he only had 1 lesson and then passed first time. He spent a total of £5 on lessons and the test. Now you have to have like 20+ hours worth of lessons.
