Useful Information - Applying For A UK Driving Licence


Provisional Licence

We recommend applying for a provisional licence as soon as possible as you will need this before you start learning to drive. You will need to complete the DVLA's D1 application form, either via their website (Direct Gov website) or at your local post office.


You can apply for your provisional driving licence up to three months before your 17th birthday although you cannot drive on the road until you have turned 17 and you have the provisional licence in your possession.


Before applying for a driving licence make sure you:

The DVLA will aim to send your driving licence within ten working days of you submitting your application. In the meantime, you can of course brush up on your Highway Code and the various driving laws before taking your driving theory test.


Full Driving Licence

Once you've passed your practical driving test you can apply for a full driving licence and get out on the road! You now need to contact the DVLA and exchange your test pass certificate and provisional driving licence for a new full UK driving licence as soon as possible.
