Starting driving lessons
Before starting driving lessons you must be 17 years old and have a valid provisional driving licence. To obtain a provisional licence you can do this online or you can complete a D1 application form which will be available at your local post office. The cost of the provisional driving licence is £34 online or £43 by post.
You can apply for your provisional driving licence when you are 15 years and 9 months old. This will let you ride a moped or light quad bike when you are 16 but you will need to wait until you turn 17 before you can start driving a car. Your driving licence will tell you when you can start driving different vehicles.
You can start your driving lessons as soon as your provisional licence is valid. You do not have to wait until you have passed the theory and hazard perception test.
