Applying for your provisional driving licence could not be easier.
You can apply for a provisional driving licence when you’re 15 years and 9 months old. You can normally start driving on your 17th birthday and your first lesson can be arranged for this date.
It is essential you hold a valid UK Provisional Driving Licence before starting your driving lessons.
You can apply online or by post by completing a D1 application form, which you can get from the DVLA form ordering service or from a Post Office.
The cost is £ 34.00 and applications take approximately 10-14 working days to process.
I'm happy to meet before your first driving lesson to discuss my approach and look at what I can offer so you feel totally supported by choosing Target Tuition.
I can also make the necessary licence and eyesight checks before you start your training.
We can discuss each stage of your training so you feel confident in making the right choice. Of course there is no obligation and all this along with my start pack is provided during your first training session.
If you would like to book a home visit, please send me an email or call directly.
The Theory & Hazard Perception Test
You will be asked to answer 50 multiple choice questions, followed by a test of your hazard perception skills. You must answer 43 questions or more correctly in 57 minutes. You will need to pass both parts of the test at the same sitting to pass your theory test.
During the hazard perception test you are shown 14 video clips of various hazards. Click the mouse key for every hazard, and also every hazard which then develops further. Candidates can score up to five marks on each hazard and the test contains 15 score able hazards. The pass mark for this part of the test is 44 out of 75.
Your theory pass certificate is valid for 2 years. You must pass your practical test within this time, or you will need to retake the theory test.
