Ok so this might be a really dumb question but I swear you could apply for your provisional drivers license when you're 16, but when I try, it says that I will only receive a moped provisional and not a car provisional since I'm not receiving "personal independence payment" and so will have to wait a couple months till I turn 17. Have they changed the rules? I know people who have gotten a provisional at 16 so I'm confused.

You can apply for your provisional licence at 15 years and 9 months old, and your provisional licence should come within 2 weeks. You can then drive a car at 17 years old, provided you have sorted out insurance on the car you are driving.

You can apply for the licence when you're 16, but you cannot drive a car until you're 17 - the licence has the dates for the various categories on the back.

Did you apply for it and if so did it include car or did you have to re apply and get another one for a car when you turn 17

I'll be 18 next week (well 9 days) and I still haven't thought about getting one even though my parents have been pestering me to start learning to drive :lol:
Just don't trust myself behind a wheel

What do you mean did it 'have car as well'?

A provisional is a provisional.

It's the same license you just won't be able to drive a car until you're 17 not 16.
