Learning to drive

The first thing you need to do, as you consider driving lessons is to get your provisional driving licence sorted. To apply for a driving licence you have to be at least 16 years and 9 months old to apply for a provisional licence to drive a car. If you want to ride a motorbike then you can apply for it at least a year earlier.

Start Your Driving Theory Test

The next step is to download an app or buy the dvd to help you start learning about the theory test.

This will start to increase your knowledge of road markings, road signs, and legal requirements when driving. This is a very important step, as quite quickly you will be mastering the art of steering the car or changing gears, but for everyone, the longest part of learning to drive, is learning to deal with situations that arise on the road and knowing and reading the relevant road signs and speed limits.

Driving and using a mobile phone

Using mobile phones when driving

It’s illegal to use your phone while driving or riding a motorcycle unless you have hands-free access, such as:

  • a bluetooth headset
  • voice command
  • a dashboard holder

The law still applies to you if you’re:

  • stopped at traffic lights
  • queuing in traffic
  • supervising a learner driver


If you use your phone hands-free, you must stay in full control of your vehicle at all times.

The police can stop you if they think you’re not in control because you’re distracted and you can be prosecuted.

When you can use a hand-held phone

You can use a hand-held phone if either of these apply:

  • you’re safely parked
  • you need to call 999 or 112 in an emergency and it’s unsafe or impractical to stop


You can get 6 penalty points and a £200 fine if you use a hand-held phone.

You can also be taken to court where you can:

If you passed your driving test in the last 2 years, you’ll lose your licence.
