If you want to drive a car, you can apply for a provisional licence 3 months before your 17th birthday. And if you receive your licence in time, you should legally be able to get behind the wheel on your 17th birthday. You can Apply for a provisional driving licence at the DVLA website.
If you are a learner driver you must take and pass your theory test before you book your practical test. However, if you already have a full driving licence you may not have to take another theory test if you want to start driving a different vehicle.
During the theory test you’ll be given 50 multiple choice questions from a bank of more than 1000 and you’ll need to get at least 43 correct to pass.
You’ll then watch 14 video clips. The clips feature everyday road scenes and contain at least one ‘developing hazard’ – but one of the clips features 2 developing hazards. Before you start the hazard perception test, you’ll be shown a video about how it works.
You must have your photocard driving licence on the day of your theory test. If you forget it, you won’t be able to sit your test and you’ll still have to pay the test fee.
Anyone giving driving lessons for money must be a DSA-approved Potential Driving Instructor (PDI) or Approved Driving Instructor (ADI). If they’re taking money without these qualifications, they’re breaking the law.
Look for the green hexagon saying Driving Standards Agency Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) or pink triangle saying Driving Standards Agency Licensed Trainee. They must have this badge displayed in their car window.
