Your Journey to getting your Driving License
The process of getting a license is pretty easy. As long as you can read the number plate of a car parked 20 metres away and are aged 15 years and 9 months or above, you can apply for a provisional license. You can learn to drive a car and take a test at 17.
The following are 5 easy steps to getting that much-wanted license:
Step 1: Get your provisional license
Cost: £34; Time: 1 week
Apply online on the DVSA website by clicking here: Remember that you will need to provide originals for:

- addresses where you’ve lived over the last 3 years
- your National Insurance number if you know it
You’ll get a confirmation email from DVLA after you’ve applied. Your licence should arrive within one week if you apply online. It may take longer if DVLA needs to make additional checks.
