Everyone is different, so its impossible to give an exact figure. The DVSA claim that the average pupil requires 45 hours of lessons and 22 hours of private practice to pass their driving test. Over the short time I have been instructing, I have taught 24 pupils to drive from scratch. From these 24 pupils, the minimum number of hours was 14 and the maximum number of hours was 59, with an average of 28 hours. For more details take a look at this post.
I am afraid I currently only do Manual Lessons. However, local schools which do Automatic Lessons include 2nd2None Driving School and Bath and Lanham’s School of Motoring.
