Learning to drive

​You can start to learn to drive once you reach the age of 17*. From three months before this point you can apply for a provisional licence, which can be done online or by post.

Apply for a provisional licence

*If you have a disability you may be able to apply for your provisional licence as soon as you are 16.

How do I learn how to drive?

Anyone over the age of 25 with a full licence can teach you how to drive but it is recommended that you learn to drive with a qualified instructor.

How do I get my full licence so I can drive on my own?

There are two parts to gaining a full driving licence.

You will need to pass

Once you’ve passed your test you can start driving straight away - you don’t need to wait for your full licence to arrive.
