Advantages of having two hour lessons

by Lessons

It is generally accepted that longer driving lessons, ideally 2 hours long, are preferable to shorter ones, and this holds true for the majority of persons learning to drive.

This is true for several reasons, some of which are:

Less time spent learning new material (can reduce by a third)
Spending for can be is lowered (2-hour sessions are reduced prices)
increases training time by a factor of three (see below)
enhances memory retention by allowing for greater repetition and practice.
enables instructors to travel more ground during sessions, giving students more opportunities to experience a wide range of traffic conditions.
permits usage on a wider range of highways, including National Speed Limit dual carriageways (70mph lessons with overtaking and use of slip roads)

This is not an exhaustive list of advantages of longer lessons. Learning speed and retention are improved even further when the study period is extended to 4 or 6 hours with planned breaks.

Take into account the ideas below.

The Theory, Briefing, and Recap are all duplicated so that we can cover two topics in a two-hour session. Nonetheless, that doesn’t account for nearly three times as much time spent in actual training.

On the other hand, I’ve found that going into tremendous depth about a single topic is the most effective strategy. Let’s say roundabouts are today’s topic of discussion. The roundabout portion of the 1-hour class lasts about 30 minutes.

We have a whopping 90 minutes to get used to driving on roundabouts. You’ll have three times as much as after just one hour of effort.

Then, how does that translate into currency?

Using the above as a rough example, the following would be required to achieve 3 hours of roundabout practice with 1 hour lesson:

3 × 1 hour @ £40 = £120

You could also take a single 2-hour class if that’s more convenient;

You’ll have to pay £80 for only one two-hour session.


Sessions of 2 hours may not be ideal for all clients. They drain energy, take a long time, and can be counterproductive to education if they aren’t organised properly.

I have always taught my students in 2-hour increments, which hasn’t changed. I can organise the lessons effectively, pausing for thought and then moving on when necessary. For this strategy to work, you must show up to your classes prepared to learn. It is important to bear in mind that staying up late, skipping breakfast, or being otherwise distracted will hinder your ability to focus and concentrate throughout your lesson.
