You'll need a driving instructor :yes:

But you can get a pack which will provide you everything you need for the theory test.

Soon after getting my provisional licence, I started taking lessons and working on the theory stuff (which I passed when I was a few lessons in). And after around 18-20 hours of lessons I took my test and that was it

Also, you can't book your practical test without having passed the theory test

I think you can apply for a provisional shortly before your 17th birthday

However, I heard there was a change in law meaning you can't take your test until you turn 18. Might be wrong though*

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?

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
