Learning to drive is one of those coming of age things that many people do as soon as they are eligible. To be eligible to learn to drive you need to be at least 17 years of age, and obviously you are able to learn any time after that.
Before you start to learn to drive there are a few things to remember:
Most importantly you’ll require a provisional licence. You can apply for this licence three months before your 17th birthday, which means you can technically start learning as soon as you turn 17. The cost of a provisional licence is £50 pounds.
When you actually come to have lessons there are a few things to bear in mind, notably where you want to get your lessons from. You might opt for a private driving school, and there might be advantages in terms of cost here. If you’re looking for driving lessons in Wandsworth or driving lessons Croydon then you can look online.
Although not essential, you can do various things to improve how you learn when you start to take lessons. For instance, you might do lots of reading about car engines or road traffic law. You might even have a family member or friend who is prepared to offer you some free lessons just so you can get a grasp of the basics.
