Wrong gear change is a minor - unless you slip it into the wrong gear, resulting in the car to stall which is an instant major, especially if there's traffic on the road (i.e. cars behind you, etc).

You should know how to work your learner's car by now and if it's not necessary to go in 5th gear, then there's no need to go into it. Unless you'll be going on dual carriageways, then you won't need 5th gear. Plus most learner cars won't require you to go into 5th gear.

It depends where you live and what the roads are like. Personally, I think it’s important to be familiar with all the gears.
My first instructor never let me go into 6th (he had extra gears) and never taught me to overtake anyone. It was in a more rural area so it wasn’t as much of an issue.
I then moved to a city for uni, and there is a dual carriageway nearby so it was necessary to use all gears (this one only had 5 though) and overtake confidently.

You can always ask your instructor about it
