That drive takes 2 hours at best.  It is a long, windy, two lane road, and you don't want to drive without stopping, so leave yourself the better part of a morning or afternoon to stop at the scenic spots (there are many).  4-5 hours is probably more reasonable.  

Be sure to check the current conditions of the road, since Tioga Pass is only open seasonally in the summer months.  

Before or after going through Tioga Pass, stop at the Mobil Station for food.  I know it sounds funny, but it is a famous eatery (gourmet deli and lunch specialties!).
