reduce your carbon tyre print
Before you learn to drive you need to make sure you are meeting the legal requirements.
- be at least 17 years of age, or if you are receiving higher rate disability allowance, 16 years of age.
have a provisional driving licence to be able to drive on a public road. The DVLA (driver and vehicle licence agency) will issue you with a provisional licence. Pick up a form D1 from your local post office or you can apply online at www.direct.gov.uk/drivinglicence
- Photo licences are now issued to anyone applying for a new licence and this is made up of 2 parts, the licence and counterpart.
When you attend your first driving lesson you need to bring your licence with you. This includes the photo card as well as the A4 paper licence.
Holders of provisional licences are not allowed to drive on motorways, so why not book a course of Pass Plus lessons with Reallygreendriving for when you have passed your test. This will enable you to build your confidence further and reduce the chance of you having an accident. Make sure you have a green light to drive safely.
You will want to practice in between lessons so you need to make sure you have access to the following:
- The person teaching you must be 21 years old or over and have held a full licence for a minimum of 3 years.
- You must display L plates on your car when you are a learner, which conform to legal specifications.
- The car you are learning in must be fully taxed and have a valid MOT
- You must be insured to drive the car you practice in
