how old do u have to be to driveWatch
my mum says i can start driving at age 17 but not on a proper license....
can someone briefly explain that concept to me x
From the gov.uk site:
"You can apply for a provisional driving licence when you're 15 years and 9 months old. You can start driving a car when you're 17. You can drive a car when you are 16 if you get, or have applied for, the enhanced rate of the mobility component of Personal Independence Payment ( PIP )".
You can get your provisional license to start driving on your 17th birthday but you have to be supervised at all times when on public roads until you pass both your theory and practical driving test.
17 before you can start driving ok
And will need to be supervised by somebody with minimum of 3 years driving
No, you can’t drive unsupervised until you’ve passed both tests. You can take both tests as soon as you turn 17 but your likely to fail at least the driving practical because you will have had very little experience. Most people take at least 6 months to pass both.
lots of qs- sorry x
You have to pass your theory test and driving test in order to get your full driving license.
Maybe but it was also true
Why anyone would want to drive a tractor to school is beyond me.
Once you pass your theory and practical (it's easy enough, believe me there's some crazy drivers out there who managed to do it!), you can drive unsupervised. You will need tax mot and insurance on a roadworthy car. Insurance is generally very high depending on where you live and what car You plan to insure, so it might make more sense to use public tranport. However cars can be better depending how it's used.
A tip from me, you will not learn certain things from an instructor. Make sure you know how to fill your car up with fuel (and the right one because it can be a costly mistake!). And learn how to change a tire at the roadside.
Hope you get licensed soon, driving can be fun
