How many driving lessons I need?
How many lessons need to get the license vary for everyone. How much have experince of cars or driving also matters. Often students need 20 - 40 driving lessons to pass the driving test. But in Autokoulu Eco we have had students who pass the driving test with 14 minimum lessons. We have very low prices for extra lessons. Please, listen to your driving instructor, if he advice to have more training before the driving test.
