I just spotted this on Southgate ARC's news site..

In the USA the complete training course and exam for the 1.5 kW Technician amateur radio license can be done in just 7 hours with a 95% pass rate.


While the Holland Amateur Radio Club say two hours is allocated for the test it only takes 30 minutes to complete. The extra time allocated allows the candidates to immediately do free retakes of the exam should they fail on their first attempt.


The US Technician license may be considered the equivalent of UK Foundation, except UK Foundation course with exam takes twice as long, typically 14 hours.
