How to Apply for Your Provisional Licence
You need to get Form D1 from a Post Office, fill it in and send it back to your local LA office with a signed photograph, documentation to confirm your identity and the correct fee, currently £34.00. Or you can apply online.
Once you receive your provisional licence back from the DVLA you can start taking driving lessons. Gaining driving experience will help whilst studying for the theory test and hazard perception test, with awareness and anticipation of other road users.
Statistics show that most 17 year olds require between 30 and 40 hours of driving experience before reaching the required UK test standard.
