Although confirmed dates are still to be announced, the DVSA is planning to scrap the a paper version of the driving licence. As you will still need to supply proof that your licence is valid and you are legally allowed to take lessons you will then need to produce the appropriate information on your first lesson.
To do this, you need to go to the official Gov Site and put in your licence number, national insurance number and postcode
You will then need to print the 3 pages with your licence info and details of vehicles you are allowed to drive in and any penalties
Note that ALL pages need to be produced before you are able to take your first driving lesson on public roads
This can also be used if you have lost your counterpart licence
Your provisional licence
Getting your Provisional Driving Licence is the first step towards your full driving licence. There are certain requirements you need to meet to enable you to successfully apply:
You are a resident of Great Britain.
You meet the minimum age requirement.
Your eyesight is of the necessary standard.
There is no reason why you are being prevented from driving.
You can pay by credit or debit card (for online application).
You have a valid UK passport or another formal form of identity.
You can provide addresses of where you have lived over the last three years.
Only once you have passed this can you apply to take your practical driving test.
Theory Test Multiple Choice Questions
The actual theory test questions are no longer published which means that those found in revision materials of any kind will give you an idea of the questions and answers to expect but will NOT be exactly the same as those you will face during the test itself.
This change was introduced to ensure you gain a better understanding of driving theory rather than simply memorising questions and answers.
Before you start the hazard perception part of the test, you'll be shown a short video clip about how it works before being shown a series of video clips on a computer screen. The clips
feature everyday road scenes and contain at least one developing hazard - but one of the clips will feature two developing hazards.
A developing hazard is something that may result in you having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction and what you need to do is identify these as early as possible to get as high a score as possible (max 5 per clip).
Below is one of the new official computer generated clips.
Once your driving has reached a suitable level, you will want to get your driving test booked. The timescale for bookings can vary one month to the next depending on the number of other learners applying around the same time. You should not just go ahead and book the test before checking that a car will be available first!
During the 'independent driving' section of the test you will be asked to follow signs or maps to a particular location to see how well you deal with driving without direction from the examiner.
