    Cool. 61/75 is a really good mark for hazard perception. Makes my 47 look bad, hehe.

    does anyone know a good amount of lessons to prebook? I want to learn to drive as we're buying a new car next month and Ive looked at the costs but I'm not sure how many lessons it will take. Any rough ideas?

    If you live 15 minutes out of town, and you want to be collected from and brought back home, you will get a maximum of 30 minutes town driving in a one hour lesson. Is that enough for you? A one-and-a-half hour lesson might be more useful. Or could you meet the instructor in town and keep it to one hour?
    Is this true?

    To pass? 30 hours or so... they say 40's the average but I think that's a little over-zealous.

    That's why the first few lessons should probably be 2 hours. Then once you're ok to drive to other places and drive yourself back home, you can go down to 1.5hours or 1 hour.

    That's just crap though. People who live closer to the centre get more time in the car? Where's the fairness in that?

    Do you know where you will be taken? Most likely on a really quiet road. :/ Lol ask the instructor to meet you there ..

    *sigh* Doesn't matter.

    I always thought if I booked a 2hr lesson I would actually get 2hrs, not 1hr 20 mins...

    You'll still get a two hour lesson because you'll be driving to the town from your house and back again, so you will be driving for two hours (or one hour depending on how long your lesson is), it just won't all be town driving. It doesnt matter thought because you will still get road practise on roundabouts and stuff

    Lol. I live about 10 minutes from town and it's fine. In the first few lessons you probably won't be taken to any busy areas anyway

    It should still be fine. You probably won't be doing town driving every lesson, especially at the beginning, and even when you are, you will still be in the car driving for the full time. When are you going to start lessons?

    I got 59/75 for Hazard and 32/35 for multiple choice.
    Need to book theory.
    I have a moronic instructor tho

    Does anyone know...with reversing round a corner, do you have to always look out the back window? As my instructor insists you do, but my mate who just passed test always uses left side mirror....
