Rules for learner drivers

Before starting to drive, you must:

  • hold a valid, provisional driving licence for Great Britain or Northern Ireland

You can apply for your provisional licence in the following ways:

  • by post - D1 application form available at the post office
  • Online - DVLA

Make sure that any vehicle you drive is roadworthy and properly taxed and insured.

Only an approved driving instructor (ADI) has the experience, knowledge and training to teach you properly. Learning safe driving habits from the start will improve the safety of yourself and other road users, bad habits are hard to break so make sure to learn safe driving practice from the beginning

If you want to practise your driving with an accompanying driver, he must be over the age of 21 and hold a full licence, in the relevant vehicle category, for at least three years.

As a learner driver you must display 'L' plates in a conspicuous position on the front and rear of the vehicle you are driving.
