Prior to taking the next step and beginning your driving lessons.
The minimum age in the UK to start driving lessons is 17. However, those that want to start driving should be in possession of a UK provisional license issued by the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency).
The initial step is to acquire a provisional license. If a person wanted to begin their driving lessons as soon as they turned 17, it is possible to apply for a provisional license three months before that person’s 17th birthday. It will arrive before their birthday but will not be valid until that day.
If a person is entitled to mobility allowance, they can apply for their provisional license at the age of 16.
Another step to consider would be to take up some essential reading either during your driving lessons or before you begin them. The Highway Code is recommended, along with preparing for your hazard perception and driving theory to ensure you are well equipped with the right knowledge for your tests. There’s a variety of resources available on the internet.
