In brief: Location > important
Considering variables like rural vs urban & access; i consider location more important than time of day for initial lessons.
Once you get a handle on basic skills in an empty parking lot, consider avoiding the known danger periods. Night is off limits for 6 mo, busy times (6-9am& 4-6pm) & dusk all see higher crash frequency.
