Before getting started, to legally drive a car on the public highway you must be at least 17 years old and hold a current UK provisional driving licence.
You can apply for your licence up to 3 months prior to your 17th birthday, but the licence will not be valid until you are 17.
You must be:
1) Be a resident of the UK.
2) Be able to comply with the minimum eyesight test, currently reading a standard vehicle number plate from a distance of 20 metres, in good daylight.
3) Not be currently prevented from driving, for any reason.
The current cost of your licence is £50.00.
