It is widely recognised that it takes longer to learn to drive and reach test standard than it did 10-15 years ago.
The average amount of tuition needed can vary dependent upon the individual, and it is possible to obtain extra supervised practice to increase your level of experience on the road.
The type of private practice is very important as it is very easy to take advice from your supervising driver, such as a parent, who might encourage poor driver practices that can have a detrimental effect on your training.
Take advice from your instructor who knows your ability and will not place you in situations that you could not handle safely.
They will know what to say and when to say it, so avoiding any family arguments.
The car you practice in must be insured for the learner to drive, having no valid insurance would make the learner liable for a fine and points on their provisional licence.
Practicing on car parks, such as supermarkets which the public can access would still mean you have to have valid insurance.
There are a number of Insurance Companies who offer specialist Learner Driver Insurance.
Note : Your supervising driver must be over 21 years old and have held a full driving licence for at least three years.
