    I got it a bit wrong. You can apply for a provisional up to 3 months before your 17th birthday, however you will not legally be permitted to book any tests until you actually turn 17. The passing the theory before you can book your practical still applies
    oh oki thanks so much

    I'm turning 17 in September. I do want to learn to drive but I don't know when, I don't think I'd be able to afford it at the moment. Does anyone have an estimate of roughly how much it would cost to get a driving license?
    Around £1,500 would be a fair estimate on the average. There are loads of different sources online that give average costs, but they are usually around the mark that I stated above. It depends on the learner though; I know many 'academically stupid' people who have passed their test easily and many 'academically superior' people can still have difficulty.

    can you apply for a provisional liscense at 16? or do you wait to be 17
    I got my provisional license within months of turning 16 so you can apply now if you want

    No, as I've already said, there are two parts to the test-the theory, where you're asked questions about driving, signs and have a hazard perception part, and a practical, where you're judged on your physical ability to drive in real life

    It is impossible to book your practical test without having passed your theory test
