Applying for your first Provisional Licence

You can apply for your licence while you are 16, but it will only be valid from the start date printed on your new licence which is normally your 17th Birthday. Once you have your Provisional Licence, you are ready for your driving lessons.

You will get a card only license, keep this safe as you will need it to take your Theory and Practical tests.

If you are an older new driver and you have the old two part license (plastic and paper) you must take photo ID for both your Theory and Practical tests, i.e Passport. click this link for help
