What You Need First

As a new driver, you must have a provisional driving licence before you can take driving lessons. You can apply for your provisional licence up to two months before it becomes valid, but you must not drive on the road before the day of your 17th birthday.

Fortunately, getting a provisional licence is a simple process and usually takes just a few weeks! You can apply online via the DVLA website or by completing a D1 application form.

The  test examiner will ask you two questions; one show me question and one tell me question. There are 19 different questions, which can be asked in 18 different combinations.

Below are examples of what you may be asked:

The First Lesson

Getting behind the wheel for the first time can seem quite daunting. Don't worry, no-one's expecting you to drive off onto a busy road the first time you get behind the wheel. Your first lesson will introduce you to the controls of the car and get you familiar with them.

I will make sure that you are in a quiet area before you actually have to do anything at all. Initially, you'll probably get to have a go at getting the car rolling just a few yards down the road and then to a stop.
