Q. What is Client based learning
A People learn in different ways and at different speeds. If someone who likes time to reflect on their learning is forced to move on to the next thing too quickly it could slow down their progress. Or if someone who likes to learn by trying things out is made to watch too many demonstrations without having a go they will get frustrated.Client-centered learning is an approach to learning that takes into account how the learner prefers to learn. When people learn in this way they are more likely to retain information and skills. People are also more likely to keep learning if they are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning at an early stage – this is the second aim of client-centered learning.
Q. How many hours will it take me to learn to drive?
A. Everyone is different, whilst some people take to it easily, others may take longer, the DSA recommend pupils should be prepared to take an average of 30-45 hours with a qualified instructor. Private practice can also help.

Q How Long does my provisional licence last for?
AT he licence itself lasts for 10 years but you have 2 years from the date you pass your written test to take your practical. I think this is why people get confused. So once you do your written test you have 2 years to complete your practical otherwise you have to redo the written..
