    In theory it is, the problem will be passing your theory and then finding a practical test all withing that space of time.

    how much driving have you done before? I know someone who passed in 8 weeks, but he's been driving since he was 12 in the field at his farm.
    It doesn't sound very likely if I'm honest!
    If you're serious, get your theory practise in now, and book your theory test.. that takes a week or two to revise for... if you're really lucky you could pass without any revision, as alot of it is just common sense, ther'e very little that you need to learn.

    Well then he passed in 5 years then, didn't he

    As said above, it can be done. Get your theory test booked and passed asap. You can't book your test until you've passed your theory.

    Assuming you mean from never being in the drivers seat of a car before, very very unlikely. Also there's the issue of being able to actually book the 2 tests in that time

    get yourself out in a car park and learn the basics, that way you will skip the boring first couple of lessons, book your theory now, its not too hard i dnt think, then get insured on a car and get the experience along side your driving lessons of 4 hours a week its easy.

    ive had 6 hours and im looking at booking my test when ive passed my theory
    i plan on passing within 8 weeks (started 2 weeks ago)
    thats how im going to do it with abit of luck

    It is possible, but you'll have to give it your all and be determined.

    I passed in 8 weeks, having one 2 hour lesson each week so (16 hours lesson time roughly), only did 2 hours in my own car with a parent as they were never free to take me out, and passed first time with 1 minor.

    I had never done any driving before my first lesson either, I was just determined to pass and believed I could. And I'm sure you could do the same, put the revision in for your theory now, get a theory test booked and work towards it to get that one in the bag. I would advise 2 hour lessons as by the time you get started with 1 hour sessions they're over. You can get a lot of driving done in 2 hours. Work hard in the lessons, concentrate and listen intentively, you'll be surprised the difference it makes really putting your mind to something

    Hardest bit will be getting your theory and practical tests squeezed into that time. You can't do the practical without doing the theory first and they both have long waiting lists, unless you stumble across a cancellation. Best of luck.

    of course its possible
    I passed in 8 weeks with 1 or 2 1hour lessons a week. If I hadn't of taken so long to take the theory it could easily have taken less than 6 weeks.
    Just take the theory straight away and get a cancellation.
