What You Need to Know About Learning to Drive in the UK Learning to drive in the UK is a multi step process like that which you would find almost anywhere. Getting started with the licensing process means meeting a number of different eligibility requirements. Age is the primary eligibility requirement. After meeting with your minimum age requirement for the specific vehicle that you wish to drive, you will then be able to apply for a provisional license under which you can practice operating a vehicle. It should be noted that no one can operate a vehicle, even for the purposes of learning, without having a provisional license issued by the DVLA. The age requirement for becoming a licensed driver differs depending on which kind of vehicle that you wish to drive. The UK age requirements determining driver eligibility are 16 for mopeds, 17 for most cars, tractors and motor bikes and 21 for trucks, minibuses and buses. Though you have to wait until you are 17 to receive your provisional license, you can apply for it three months before you officially turn 17. After getting your provisional drivers license, you will then need to find a driving instructor. Some people think that they know enough bout driving not to need the help of a driving instructor. You may be thinking that you will not learn anything from a certified driving instructor that you would not learn from a parent or a friend who already has their license. But the truth is that preparing for your driving exams requires the help of a locally ADI approved driving instructor.
