Hiiii,

My mom said that for my 16th birthday she wants to buy me my provisional, although I know that you cannot drive a car until you are 17. When you go to apply online, it says that since I do not receive personal independence payment, I will only be entitled to a moped provisional license. This is fine because I want to learn how to drive a moped in the meantime, but does this turn into a car provisional when I turn 17? Or would to buy another license?

No, the same licence will turn into a car provisional when you turn 17.

If you flip the licence over it should have the start date of your car provisional entitlement, the date should read your 17th birthday.
