Do you think its possible...


to pass your driving test in 2 months?

I was learning about 3 years ago but stopped when I couldn't afford it anymore. I was learning for 2 years and failed my test twice (and then another 2 after that don't like admitting that).

I know how to drive, and the reasons I failed were mainly down to nerves!!! Ive seen a beautiful house that I want us to move into in September but the public transport isnt great and getting Seth to nursery would be a problem.



Anyone done it before???

My husband started in the January, was ready for his test in the April but couldn't get a test until the May and passed.

You can get these intensive courses (I did 20 hours in one week once!!) which offer a test at the end. if you already have some experience maybe this would be a way of doing it quickly, plus no room for nerves to kick in if it's that quick.

BTW I don't know how much you should accept my advice. It took me 3 years to learn, took my theory year one, failed my test year two, passed my test year 3, 1 week before my theory ran out! Talk about cutting it fine!

Good luck and yes, it can be done!

As long as you can get theory and driving tests booked in two months then you can definately do it. Just make sure you put in the hours of practice you need.

I passed mine in 3 months (had to do it quick as was PG and getting big) but probably could have passed sooner if I had been able to book theory and practical tests at an earlier date. I had 2 X 2hour lessons a week and practised with DH at the weekends.....Good luck!!!

I don't know what they do there but here I had about a half hour of driving with my instructor right before my test. We went over the probable areas that I was going to be going on during my test and it eased up my nerves a lot! The first time I went to do my test my instructor was late and I had 10 minutes of driving after being already stressed as he was 45 mins late... needless to say I ended up failing. Much better deal the second time round.

Its possible! I had my 1st lesson on 1st June and passed on August 9th of the same year! Had loads and loads of practice in between lessons with my mum though which helped enormously

It is possible babe. I did it. I started learning to drive at 17 then I gave up about 7 months later because of money issues and then I started back up again and within a few months I had passed my test...it did take me 3 times though

Good luck with whatever you decide x
