Before you start driving lessons...
Before any young or older driver starts lessons, there are some
basic essentials that they must undertake. Some of these are just
common sense however I listed some of them below.
You can apply for your provisional driving license three months
before your 17th birthday. If however you are disabled or if you
are receiving mobility allowance you can apply as soon as you are
16 years old. Once you are 17 years of age you are legally allowed
to drive on UK public roads. ( Supervised if you have not passed
your test )
Check out your eyes
A good instructor will test your eyes on your first lesson before
even getting in the car, the legal requirements are; your must be
able to read a number plate in good daylight from 20.5 metres away
– that's about five car lengths.

It is not necessary to take your theory test before you take driving
lessons, however you will have to pass it before your practical
test, it is a good idea to revise before and while your taking your
driving lessons. Many so called booking agents are charging people
to book ther theory tests, you can however book your test direct,
please you the link below.
DSA recommends that all learner drivers book their driving test
through the official booking service on Directgov by visiting...
