What is the driving test pass rate in Glasgow?

There are lots of factors that can influence a pass rate, such as the number of tests taken in the area. Whether or not you pass simply depends on how you perform on the day.

Is 20 hours of driving lessons enough?

If you've not been behind the wheel before, 20 hours of lessons is unlikely to be sufficient to get you test ready. The DVSA state that on average a candidate who passes their test has taken 48 hours of professional lessons, as well as completed 20 hours of private practice. So a 20 hour course is only suitable for a learner who has already had at least 20 - 30 hours behind the wheel. Try our course recommender to understand what the best course is for you.
