A1-SDS - Test / Licence Information
(A1 Stephanies Driving School)
At A1 Stephanies Driving School, Warrington -
knowing your tuition is a significant pivotal point in your life, as it opens up new opportunities and for it to run smoothly helps with your readyness to learn a new skill. To do this all legal requirements concerning your licence will be checked before training can commence. Below are just a few things you should know before starting your driving lessons...
To be 17 years+ (unless registered disabled) and have a signed provisional driving licence for the category of vehicle you intend to drive for manual or automatic.
You can apply for your provisional licence up to three months before your 17th birthday. To obtain a licence, visit the Post Office, and send off one of the application forms - D1 and the new photo licence application form D750, or apply online through the DVLA website.
You will need your provisional driving licence before you can take any lessons. We recommend professional instruction, but you may wish to practice in another vehicle if accompanied by someone who is at least 21 years of age and has held a full driving licence for at least three years, and the car displays 'L' plates at the back and front of the car.
The theory test has to be passed before applying for the practical tests and consists of a hazard perception test and multiple choice theory questions. For the latest rules and regulations you can try the following sites ... www.dsa.gov.uk for full information on driving tests and on-line booking, and www.dvla.gov.uk for the forms to obtain your provisional licence.
