Don’t know where to start with driving?


Over the next few weeks we will be posting blogs to help get you started with driving.

In order to learn to drive, you must hold a provisional driving licence issued by the DVLA. You can apply for a provisional entitlement to drive a car providing you are at least 17 years old, or in the case where you receive a disability allowance you can apply at 16 years old.

You are required by law to advise the DVLA of any medical condition which may affect your ability to drive a vehicle. You will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire as part of your application for a provisional licence. For further information on medical rules and requirements click here.

You can apply for your provisional driving licence by completing the D1 application form that is available from the DVLA form ordering service or Post Office® branches. You will also need to enclose original documentation confirming your identity, a passport style colour photograph and the fee of £50.00.

For more information about provisional licences visit the DVLA website. If you are a British resident you can apply online provided you meet the criteria. Click here to apply online.

Once this arrives you are ready to start your ‘learning to drive’ journey. Don’t hesitate to contact Ltest School of Motoring if you need any help with this process on 0161 241 3699. We look forward to helping you gain your freedom.
