You don't have to do the full 75 hours with an instructor - usual thing is about 12 hours with an instructor, and the rest with family/friend in the passenger seat. What happens with teenagers as far as I can tell is the parents take the son/daughter out for the majority of the hours, then when all their hair has gone completely white, they have taken up drinking very strong alcohol and smoking anything they can get their hands on, and they have a permanently haunted look in their eyes and a nervous twitch at all times (this is the parents I'm talking about) - they book the last 12 or 15 hours for their offspring with an instructor who has dual controls in their car, and who the teenager actually listens to.... I'm sure that won't be the case with you, though!!
Darling daughter is still on her Ls, but we've definitely reached the "need a professional" stage!
I understand Diane. Yes it'd be very hard to make them listen to you with all the excitement of sitting behind the wheel and driving. But is it really that bad? Thank you again for the advice Diane, like always clear and to the point.
I learnt driving only a couple of months ago and just completed 75hrs. I am now getting ready for the road test. I took 12 lessons with an instructor and completed compulsory 75hrs with family and friends. You may not need that many Hours with an instructor.
The rules are the same for teenagers and adults but if you are over 25yrs then you can apply for a P license after 6 months.
The details of the tests are given in the links by other members. I found RAA site was more user friendly.
Do let me know if you need anything specific.
All the best.
Thank you Sunnyside. So how long did it take you to complete the 75 hours? And I'm 34 so I can apply for a P license after 6 months. That's good news
