Obtaining Your Licence
In the UK, driving tests are conducted by the Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). Check out the website at www.gov.uk , then click on the link for Driving and Transport. This contains all the information that learners and new drivers need to know.
Before you can learn to drive a car, moped or motorcycle you must apply for a provisional driving licence. If you already hold a valid full driving licence and want to learn to drive larger vehicles, minibuses or buses you will need to apply for provisional entitlement for these vehicles. You have to be 17 years of age to obtain a provisional licence, but you can apply up to three months before your 17th birthday.
You can apply for your first provisional driving licence for a car, moped or motorcycle using the government’s secure and easy to use online service at: gov.uk/apply-first-provisional-driving-licence Or the application form (form D1) can be obtained from your local Post Office if you would like to apply by post.
The Theory Test
Before you apply for your theory test you will need a provisional licence. The website gov.uk will give you all the information you need to know. We suggest that you only book your Theory Test through this website, as there are rogue traders out there offering to book for you at inflated prices (the current fee is £23.)
The Practical Test
The practical test will last approximately 40 minutes beginning and ending at your local Driving Test Centre. Throughout the drive, you are permitted a maximum of 15 driver faults. A serious or dangerous fault would result in a fail. We will work with you to agree on a test date, making sure you feel ready and ultimately confident to drive alone. We will do practice mock-tests so we can focus on any areas that need brushing up before test day. We are happy to book a driving test on your behalf, but if you would like more information go to: gov.uk. The current test fee is £62.00 weekdays and £75 evenings and weekends.
