How Many Driving Lessons Southampton Clients Will Need

Learning to drive can be extremely daunting for any first-timer behind the wheel, which is why it is vital to have a quality instructor available. At Kinghams Driving School, we believe that there is no ideal number of lessons in which to become a confident driver, as the case will differ for each individual. Many instructors will tell you that you should be ready to pass your driving test after 40 or 50 hours of lessons, but the truth is that this differs from person to person.

While it isn’t discouraged to have a timeframe in mind regarding completing your driving lessons, it’s important to remember that the ultimate goal is to become a safe and confident driver. It is this aim that we strive to help every student achieve when they begin lessons with a member of our driving team. Our instructors will, of course, push you during each lesson so as to encourage you to learn more, but they will never move on if they do not feel it would benefit you to do so.

A number of factors will determine how many driving lessons Southampton learners will need when taking lessons with our driving team. For example, if you had driven before but had to stop for whatever reason, you’re likely to need fewer lessons than someone who has never sat behind the wheel. Whatever your prior experience, our driving team will be able to tailor their teaching methods to your requirements to make sure that you get effective driving lessons.

    Our Driving Courses

    Our Driving Courses

    At Kinghams Driving School, we understand that Southampton learners will all have different requirements for their courses. For example, while some learners will want to jump into an automatic vehicle, others will prefer learning through the automotive method. Similarly, those with lots of free time would benefit from a more intensive course, whereas others will prefer to spread out their learning to fit in with their busy schedule. 

    It has always been our aim to cater to the needs of as many keen learners as possible, which is why we’ve continued to expand the range of courses we offer. Thanks to the versatility of our driving team in Southampton, we can deliver lessons that suit the requirements of virtually all learners. When you first get in touch with our team, they will take you through a consultation to determine what type of lessons would be best for your needs. 

    Southampton learners can learn more about the various courses we offer below. 


    Our manual driving lessons are the most common that we have available as well as the most popular. By taking manual lessons, students will have more options regarding the type of vehicle they can drive as well as a greater understanding of vehicle mechanics. Our manual lessons are taught by Leroy Gumbs. 


    Automatic lessons have become appealing for many clients in Southampton as they are often easier. Some of the benefits of automatic driving include the lack of clutch pedal and gear stick, which means you have less to concentrate on while driving. You can learn more about our automatic lessons by speaking to Steve Kingham who is our resident automatic driving instructor. 


    An intensive course is an ideal option for those who are looking to learn to drive quickly. Our intensive courses will see you take on many lessons in a short space of time so that you can hone your driving skills at a faster pace. Intensive lessons are also appealing for many as they can result in a more cost-effective learning process. 

    Pass Plus

    Once you pass your test, the real challenges offered by driving will appear. Night driving, country driving, and adverse weather driving are just some of the issues people face once they’ve passed their test. Fortunately, these are all covered in our Pass Plus course, which will help you to become a safer and more knowledgeable driver. 

    Taster Lessons

    Rather than diving straight into a ten-hour block, many people want to first make sure that driving is for them. It is for this reason that we offer taster sessions as an option for all of our students. You will be able to get started with our instructors for an initial two-hour session in Southampton in which you’ll get a better feel for our courses. 

    Taxi Lessons

    If you’re planning on becoming a taxi driver, then it is vital that you have exceptional driving skills. Fortunately, this is something that we at Kinghams Driving School can offer as we have over 25 years’ experience when it comes to taxi lessons. You will be taken through a comprehensive course that will make you a safe and reliable taxi driver.

    After stop-starting driving lessons for almost two years I passed my test on the second try! Steve was always very encouraging and supportive and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor – thanks a lot!
