Before starting driving lessons you need to be at least 17 years old and hold a UK provisional licence; you do not need to have passed your theory test.
To apply for a licence, complete a D1 form obtainable from the Post Office and send it to the DVLA with your passport or birth certificate and a passport-sized photo. You can also apply online. Apply for a provisional licence up to three months before your 17th birthday and you could book your first driving lesson for your birthday! Click here to apply for a provisional licence online.
