Learn to drive a car: step by step guide.


Step 1


Check what age you can drive

Most people can start learning to drive when they’re 17.


Requirements for driving legally

You must do several things before you drive a car. These include getting a driving license, registering, insuring and taxing your vehicle, and getting an MOT.


Driving eyesight rules

You must be able to read (with glasses or contact lenses, if necessary) a car number plate made after 1 September 2001 from 20 metres.

You must also meet the minimum eyesight standard for driving by having a visual acuity of at least decimal 0.5 (6/12) measured on the Snellen scale (with glasses or contact lenses, if necessary) using both eyes together or, if you have sight in one eye only, in that eye.

You must also have an adequate field of vision – your optician can tell you about this and do a test.


Step 2: Get a provisional Licence

Apply for your first provisional driving licence £34 to £43
