What is a Provisional Licence?
A provisional license is the first step towards obtaining your full driving licence in the United Kingdom. In order to be eligible for a provisional licence, you must be at least 15 years and 9 months old and be able to demonstrate that you meet all the legal requirements. This includes providing proof that you are a resident of the UK and have valid identification documents. Once these criteria have been met, then you can start your application for a provisional licence.
The process for applying for your provisional driving licence begins with an online application form. You will need to provide personal information such as your name, address and date of birth, as well as payment details if applicable. The DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) will then process your application and send you confirmation of receipt via email or post. Once confirmed, they will then check that all identity documents are correct before sending out your new licence card by post within 3 weeks.
