quote: Now can you tell me why the DSA recommend 45 hours of training as an average with a driving instructor and as an average around 22 hours of additional private practice before passing a driving test for a learner driver and your advice states only 16 - 32 hours on average?
Hi undercover adi, I am also an adi, bet I know why you came here.....
hmmm... in the u.s. any driver under eighteen is required to have formal lessons(ok in ohio at least) so this topic intrigues me... is it an option there to not take a driver's ed course?
I don't remember much about my test it was so long ago, but what i do know is that the standard needed to pass today is a hell of a lot higher than it was back in 1972, the roads are a lot busier now, and there are many more roundabouts and some very complicated ones on the roads today, as a result the items on the syllabus has increased and there is much more to cover on lessons than there ever was. They are just some of the reasons why it takes longer to get to a competent level of driving ability than it did all those years ago. Around 3500 people are killed on our roads every year and to help reduce this figure we have to teach people to drive safely for the rest of there driving lives by teaching defensive driving techniques and it cant be done in 6 or 10 lessons, not on todays roads.Thanks for reading this.Les.
