About my Lessons

To drive a motor car you must be 17 years old unless you are disabled, in which case, if you receive higher rate disability allowance you can learn to drive at 16 years old. You must also hold a current Provisional Licence, that has been signed, before you can start lessons.

For further information about how to apply for your licence, follow this link.

To become a qualified full licence holder you must pass both the Theory Test (including the Hazard Perception Test) and the Practical Driving Test.

These test are both conducted by The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) which is an agency of the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions. Driving lessons can commence before either test is attempted but the Theory Test must be passed before you are allowed to book a Practical Test. The Theory Test certificate lasts for 2 years during which you must pass the Practical Test or re-sit and pass the Theory Test again.
