Learning to drive on the Isle of Man can be a tricky business – but don’t worry, MSM are here to help! If you’re not already completely clear on what’s involved in learning to drive.

According to the DVSA (Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency), those who pass their driving test have had, on average, about 45 lessons of professional training, with an addition of 22 hours of private practice.  Some drivers may need less, and some drivers may need more. Learners who combine professional instruction with private practice are also more successful on their driving test.

Remember the DVSA figures are just a guide and not a guarantee of how many driving lessons you’ll need to rip up those L-plates! We have an excellent first time pass rate and we have helped 1000s of people pass their Isle of Man Driving Test.
