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 D1 form is available from your local Post Office and for the process you will need:

  • Original documents to confirm identity
  • Passport-style Photograph
  • Licence fee (currently £50)
For more information on provisional licences and the application process, please see the DVLA website.
