Depends on the wind direction... but here the prevailing wind is WSW so that means a 30 min drive (20km) for me. However my closest genuine kiting spot is just down the road (1 minute), this works in N - SE winds. For Strong winds from the West to the South the drive is more likely to be an hour.

it was between 1-2 hours based on knowing of only 2 lakes that allowed it. Now, I'm glad to say I only have to drive about 15-20 minutes to kite at my local spot. As long as there is wind, I'll be over there practicing.

More than an hour is NOT a "local" spot...
