How To Get License

There are 3 Steps procedure to get UK Driving License.

1. Get Provisional Licence
You will need a valid Provisional Driving Licence, before you drive on public road as learner or take theory test. The DVLA ( Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency ) issues the provisional license and for that you will need to fill the application form (Form D1). The form can be freely available from Post Office or you can apply online on official site. You can apply for your provisional licence up to 3 months before your 17th Birthday but it will not be valid until you actually turn 17 so you will not be able to take lessons on a public road, or take your theory test until then.

You can start taking your driving lessons before you pass theory test, But you can not apply for practical test until you pass your theory test.

There are 2 parts to the theory test:

  • the multiple choice part
  • the hazard perception part

Both parts of the test are taken on the same day. The questions in the multiple-choice part and format of the hazard perception part depend on what kind of vehicle you want to drive.
