Beware of Illegal Driving Instructors!
If you think your instructor is working illegally then contact the DVSA with as much information as possible. If they are offering lessons at low prices, or do not display a Pink or Green Badge, keep personal details hidden, for example they do not supply business cards, or log books, then the chances are they are working illegally and putting you and other road users at risk.
What do I need to do before I can start driving ?
- You must have a Provisional Licence.
- You must complete driving licence application form D1 and photocard application form D750 (Available from most post offices).
- The minimum age which you can legally drive a car on the public roads is 17.
- If you are disabled and in receipt of mobility allowance, the minimum age is 16.
- Until the day you pass the practical part of the Driving Test you are not allowed to drive on your own.
- It is also worthwhile having an eyesight test to check that you meet the minimum eyesight standard for driving.
How many driving lessons will I need to take ?
Driving Standards Agency research shows that the current average is 45 hours of tuition, with an additional 22 hours private practice to pass. Your instructor will give you an idea of how long you are likely to need after your first lesson. You can help keep this low by taking two-hour lessons and following our easy tips for practice with parents or relatives.
The Theory & Hazard Perception Test
You will be asked to answer 50 multiple choice questions, followed by a test of your hazard perception skills. You must answer 43 questions or more correctly in 57 minutes.
You will need to pass both parts of the test at the same sitting to pass your theory test. During the hazard perception test you are shown 14 video clips of various hazards. Click the mouse key for every hazard, and also every hazard which then develops further.
Candidates can score up to five marks on each hazard and the test contains 15 score able hazards. The pass mark for this part of the test is 44 out of 75.
Your theory pass certificate is valid for 2 years. You must pass your practical test within this time, or you will need to retake the theory test.
The Practical Driving Test
You should be able to read a number plate at 20.5 metres (67feet) or 20metres (66feet) plates from 2001. The driving test will last approximately 40 minutes. Your drive will take on a number of different roads and traffic conditions.
You will be asked to carry out one set exercise which will include reversing, you may also be asked to perform a controlled stop/emergency stop. Learner drivers will be tested on independent driving or sat nav as part of the practical driving test.
Two questions are asked of the mechanical nature of the vehicle starting with the words ‘Show me or Tell me‘.
