Preparing for Driving Lessons
In the UK you have to be 17 years old to obtain a provisional driving license for a car or motorbike. The only exception is if you have a disability allowance when you may be able to obtain a provisional license at 16. You must be in possession of a provisional driving license before you will be able to drive on a public road.
You can obtain a license application form D1 from any main post office or go to the provisional licence page at gov.uk
and apply. You will need this license before you can learn to drive.
General Driving Questions
The average amount of hours required to learn to drive is 65hrs. However this will be dependent on previous experience and general learning ability, as well as aptitude and confidence at the wheel. Depending on these factors your could require far fewer hours before being ready to take your test. You may also feel you would like a few more lessons to hone your skills before taking your driving test too. Each person is individual and I will only suggest you should apply to take your test when both you and I feel you're ready.
After Passing Test Questions
You go out for at least six hours of extra tuition including motorways. At the end I send off the paperwork to the DSA and you will get your Pass Plus certificate, not to mention extra life skills for your safety.
