Q1. How many lessons do I need before I am ready for my test?

Everyone has a different learning ability. However, some people may only need a few lessons and others require more. It also depends on the frequency of lessons and previous experience. Keep in mind, we at Ace suggest no matter which driving school you choose, have one or two lessons and then ask your instructor to give you an approximate estimate.
