    yeah, of course you did - especially considering the first two hours is spent explaining the controls of the car, and no instructor would put you in for a test after 2 hours. what'd you do in the month+ wait for the test, by the way?
    for your information i did indeed only take 8hrs of lessons. I booked my test in February for April. Started taking lessons in mid-March. I knew how to drive since i was 14. And who the hell says an instructor has to PUT YOU IN for a test? You book it yourself. The instructor has nothing to do with it. You can even go for a test without taking any lessons beforehand. You can use your dad's car for the test. Is that alright with you Stephen? What's the matter? Spending a fortune on lessons with no luck in passing your test?

    bleh. I misread it as "two hours" of driving, not 8 hours :p:

    FYI, I passed first time with 2 minors and had 25 1 hour lessons :p:

    By the time i passed (3rd time) I'd had between 50 and 60 hours with my instructor (Including tests i think) plus private practice in my own car. I sometimes wonder if it would have been quicker with a different instructor. I started learning on June 7th 2007and didn't pass till Jan 31st 2008.
