I know this question has been asked about a million times, but I recently just turned 17 and want to start learning to drive, but Iām not too sure how long itāll take before I can actually pass my test.

The main reason Iām posting in here is because I donāt really have a lot of money to pay for the lessons Because Iāve only just started at a new job and itāll take a while before I can pay for the lessons, so I intend to use my mums car and she can help teach me and help me to gain experience with driving. So basically what Iām asking is how many lessons do I actually need because I want to pass ASAP but idk if I can just learn with my mother and have just a few lessons?
Cheers

tl;dr: I want to learn to drive but Iāve got no money really, how many lessons do I need?

How long is a piece of string?

DVSA say the average is 45 lessons + 22 hours of private practice. A lot of people need a lot more, and a lot of people need a lot less.

Absolutely.

See how it goes, best of luck. Having access to a private car for practice is incredibly beneficial.

Another option is having automatic lessonsāif your Mumās car is automatic, having automatic lessons speeds up the process and providing you practice independently you may be able to pass with 20-25 lessons. However, this does rely on your Mum having an automatic car, and also you would maybe need to take another test later on if you wanted to drive manual cars or rent cars abroad.
