I Have Never Driven Before – How Long Will it Take for Me to Learn?
The amount of time it takes for someone to learn to drive varies greatly. Some can pick up the skill in as few as a handful of lessons while others take considerably longer to feel comfortable behind the wheel. However, it’s important to realize driving is a skill that needs many hours behind the wheel before certain good habits become ingrained. Just because you pass a road test, does not mean you are expert driver. It simply means that you met the bare-minimum standard of safety to be on the road. This is exactly the reason why when you go to renew your car insurance, the auto brokers asks, “does everyone within the household, driving this vehicle, have at least ten years of driving experience?” That question determines whether a discount is applied or not. But more importantly it shows that it takes many years of on-road experience before you have been familiarized with different types of driving situations.
