Getting Started



Be prepared - start early!


Before you are 17


Three months before your 17th birthday you can apply for your provisional licence – or as soon as you're 16, if you're disabled and receiving mobility allowance. You can apply online or use a form from the Post Office (form D1).

The provisional licence costs £50 for a car.


From you're 17th birthday, you can legally drive a car on public roads in the UK. If at all possible try and start getting some practise on private land. This is ok as long as the site is gated and far away from public highways. Note: supermarket car parks are classed as public roads, so don't use these.


Check your eyesight


Before you start learning and driving a car, make sure you can read a number plate in good daylight from 20.5 metres away which is around about five car lengths distance. For the new-style number plates (that were introduced on September 2001), the distance is 20 metres. If you need to wear glasses or contacts to read the number plate that's ok but for obvious reasons make sure you always wear them whenever you are driving.


Display 'L' plates


When learning to drive in any vehicle, you must display 'L' plates on the front and back of your car – somewhere they can be seen easily. Be careful not to restrict your own vision by dispaying in a front or rear window.


Remember you're only allowed to drive with someone who's passed their test, is over 21 and has been driving for three years or more.


Your 'L' plates also have to meet legal specification - so it's much easier to simply buy some rather than trying to make some at home yourself. If the car is driven by someone with a full licence, the L plates should be removed or covered up.




Don't forget to be covered by insurance! It's a legal requirement


When you're paying and taking driving lessons, your driving school will have the car insured to cover every eventuality. But if you're practising with friends or family, make sure you're covered on their insurance policy.


Non UK Licence


Even if your driving licence was issued in another country you can drive in the UK – as long as you're 17. Check with DVLA for full information


Driving Lessons


Todays roads are more complex and busier than ever before. To ensure you learn correctly and are taught the safest and best methods to ensure you feel confident and feel safe, plus be fully prepared for the driving test you'll want the best preparation possible.


It is highly recommended to take driving lessons from a fully qualified driving instructor that is licensed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA). Check the grade and experience of the driving instructor before booking.


It will make your learning process easier and faster if you take regular driving lessons and not to leave too much time in between. Driving lessons are best taken as regularly as possible - ideally 1, 2, 3 or more sessions per week, depending on your available time and finances.


Driving lessons are normally taken in single 1 hour, 1:5 hour and 2 hour sessions. Your driving instructor will advise what suits you best after your first couple of driving lessons.


Need to Learn Quicker?


Fast Pass, Quick Pass or Intensive Driving Courses can help if you need to pass your test in a shorter period of time, for example before you go to University, or to assist in gaining a job that requires a full driving licence.




As the old saying goes - practice makes perfect!


Once you've started taking driving lessons your driving instructor will be happy to discuss the best way to getting some practice between your driving lessons.


You can practice with a friend or family member as long as they're over 21 and held a full British driving licence for over three years.


How many driving lessons will I need?


Everyone is different!


After having a couple of driving lessons your driving instructor will be able to more accurately estimate how many driving lessons you are likely to need to become safe and ready to pass the practical driving test.


According to DSA the current average is 45 hours of tuition, with 22 hours of private practice. Remember this is an average, some take far less and some take far more.


Taking regular, longer driving lessons with a shorter break between and gaining some private practice will help you learn faster.


Theory Test


Don't leave it too long to take your theory driving test. The knowledge you learn will certainly assist you in learning to drive and understanding the rules of the road; plus you can't book a practical driving test until you have passed the theory test. Once you have passed the theory test it is valid for a 2 year period.
