Further Help

To accompany a learner driver, you need to be at least 21, have held a full driving licence for at least three years and clearly display 'L' plates on the back and front of your car.  The Driving Standards Agency recommend a grounding in driving skills with a fully qualified instructor before you start accompanying a learner.
 
The Driving Standards Agency says the average learner takes 45 hours of tuition with 22 hours of private practice (source) to be ready for the test.

So while private practice with a friend or relative is an excellent idea, it's important that any practice supports what the instructor is teaching in the driving lessons.

These tips will help make your learner's private practice more effective:

  • Use private practice to follow up things covered in the driving lessons.
     
  • Keep a record of your practice drives to show your learner's driving instructor.
     
  • Follow the instructor's approach as much as you can.
     
  • Arrange specific times for driving practice.
     
  • Be patient and keep calm.
