The first step to obtaining a driving license and start learning to drive is by applying for a provisional license. Learners can apply for their provisional in person by completing and submitting their D1 application form to the nearest local post office. Alternatively, learners can also apply through the DVLA online application.

Before starting the application process, make sure that you meet the following qualifications

  • >> 17 years old and above in age
  • >> Must be able to read the a license plate at a distance of 20 metres
  • >> Must have a valid proof of identity and corresponding documentation
  • >> Must be able to provide their address for the past 3 years
  • >> Must have no impending misdemeanors that can prevent him/her to drive
  • >> Must be able to pay the £34 using their credit or debit card

After submitting your application, DVLA will run a thorough check on all your requirements. The application process will take at an average 3 weeks wherein they will be sending your provisionals through mail.

Learners can only start learning to drive upon receiving their provisional license. The provisional license will include a code that stands as your entitlement to learn to drive. You can however start brushing up your knowledge in the Rules of the Road as well as the highway code.
