Provisional   Licence

 

You will need to obtain a provisional license before you start driving with an instructor or family member. We strongly recommend taking lessons with an instructor before attempting to drive with a family member in order to ensure your safety as well as other road users. You can find more information on obtaining a  provisional license on the link below.

Theory Test 

The theory test is designed to help you read road signs, understand the rules of the road and learn how to perceive any possible hazards that lie ahead. We strongly recommend reading the Highway Code before taking your theory test. Practical test bookings take up to 3 months in some areas, so it’s definitely a good idea to pass your theory as soon as possible. More information about the theory test and how to book can be found on the link below.
