How To Apply For A Provisional Driving Licence

You can have a provisional car, motorbike and moped licence once you are 15 years and 9 months old. However, you cannot drive a moped until your 16th birthday or a car before your 17th. See www.gov.uk/apply-first-provisional-driving-licence. The licence typically arrives within a week and the cost is £34. You must:

  • be a resident of Great Britain
  • meet the minimum eyesight requirements
  • not be prevented from driving for any reason (such as health)
  • pay by MasterCard, Visa, Electron, Maestro or Delta
  • have a valid UK passport or other form of identity
  • confirm your National Insurance number (if known)
  • reveal where you have lived for the last 3 years
