    i am 16 years 6 months old and im applying for my provisional licence so that its out of the way and paid for so i can save for my insurance, but, when i am applying it says as im under 17 i will receive a moped licence. if i buy my provisional now, will it automatically become a valid provisional for a car or will i have to repurchase the licence when im 17? Thanks.

    Wait until 3 months before and you will get the right one...

    It becomes a car one automatically - there is a "valid from date" on the back of the license for category B cars which will be the date of your 17th birthday.
