|USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT DRIVING LESSONS:
I realise learning to drive can seem quite complicated, with all the forms you need to fill out and other stuff you have to remember. Don't worry - I have created this page to give you everything you need to know about getting hold of your provitional licence and starting your driving lessons, followed by the steps you need to follow for and untimately passing your test.
I hope you find this info helpful.
Applying for a provisional licence:
First things first, before you can even get into a car and start learning to drive, you have to get hold of a provitional licence.
To apply for this, you must complete the application form D1 that's available from either DVLA or your local post office. It takes about 4 weeks for your application to be processed and for your licence to be sent to you - so if you want to start learning to drive as soon as you hit 17 make sure you apply early.
The highway code is essential reading for everybody learning to drive. It contains all the rules and regs that relate to driving in the uk. As a driver it's your duty to know these rules and remember if you don't abide by them, you'll be breaking the law and could end up being prosecuted. This could lead to you losing your licence, so it's worth getting to know what's what.
Your driving test theory:
The theory test is made up of two parts, a multiple choice and a hazard perception test. The mutiple test is delivered using a touch screen computer and mouse, while the hazard perception test records your responses through the use of a computer mouse button.
You need to pass both parts to successfully complete the theory test. If you pass one and fail the other you'll fail the whole test, you'll have to take both pats again.
You can book your theory test through the DSA website.

The practical driving test:
Before you do anything you'll be asked to perform an eyesight check and then be asked some vehicle safety questions.You'll then be tested on your general driving ability, includung two reversing excersises. The ''Driving'' part of the test will last about 40 minutes. Throughout the test the examiner will be looking for evidence you've reached an overall safe standard of driving. You can make up to 15 driving faults and still pass the test, However if you commit one serious or dangerous fault, you'll fail the test automatically.
The practical test can be booked online with DVLA. Click here to learn more
