Hourly Learning

As a rough guide the DSA (Driving standards agency) states that the average person will need 47 hours of practical lessons, and also 22 hours of private practice (on average) before they pass their test. This will of course vary for your own needs but will give a rough guide to how much tuition you may require, as well as your own private practical study.

For some, hourly learning is ideal to fit around other commitments; family, work, education etc., and at ABACUS is tailored to your individual needs & requirements.

At ABACUS we deliver discounts for block booking of 10 hours or more, with further discounts applied for consecutive block booking. See our pricing page for more details.

UK Driving Theory

To be able to drive a car or ride a motorcylce, passing the UK driving theory test is a requirement before booking your practical test.

There are two parts to the UK driving theory test: the Multiple Choice section, & the Hazard Perception Section

Both sections of the test are taken on the same day. It is required that you book your driving theory test in advance. Depending on the kind of vehicle you wish to drive, the questions and format of both sections will differ. To pass the theory test, you will need to pass both sections.

Upon passing you'll be awarded the driving theory test pass certificate. When you book your practical test - you will need the certificate number.
