So the time has come for you to book and take your practical driving test. The Driving Standards Agency states that most learners will take at least 47 hours of professional driving tuition lessons and at least 20 hours with friends and family before passing a driving test. More Information here from the D.S.A. about how long it takes to pass the driving test on average.  People that learn with us  …do better than average!


The average number of driving lessons is currently 35+ hours.   As all learner drivers are different, some will pass more quickly than others. Once you have reached the standard to take your driving test your driving instructor will inform you.

Your driving instructor in Wem will carry out some mock driving tests with you, so you can become familiar with what is expected on the day of your test. Between yourself and your driving instructor you need to decide where you will be taking your driving test.

Your driving test will start with an eyesight check and some vehicle safety questions. The driving part of your test will last about 40 minutes. Throughout the test your examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving, including carrying out one of the manoeuvre excersises.

You will also be asked to do the independant part of the test for 5 to 10 minutes. You can make up to 15 driving faults and still pass the test (16 or more results in failure). However, if you commit one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test.  More information here about the practical driving test – from the D.S.A.

Your driving instructor will drive back regardless of whether you have passed or failed as you may not be fully concentrating on whats going on due to the stresses of the day.
