Provisional Driving License

Before you can learn to drive a car you must apply for a provisional driving licence. For new pupils undertaking professional driving tuition through a driving school you driving instructor will ask to see your provisional driving licence before driving lessons commence.

The easiest way to apply for your Provisional Driving Licence is on line at the DirectGov website. You can do this if you:

  • are a resident of Great Britain
  • can meet the minimum age requirement
  • can meet the minimum eyesight requirement
  • are currently not prevented from driving for any reason
  • can pay £34.00 (Price correct at time of writing. Check the DirectGov website for the latest prices) by MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, Electron, Delta or Solo debit or credit card
  • have a valid UK passport or another form of identity
  • can provide addresses of where you have lived over the last three years

Alternatively, you can apply in person at a Post Office (ask for a D1 form). You will also need to enclose original documentation confirming your identity, a passport style colour photograph and the fee.
