So I got my license in the US. DVLA says that I can drive with a US license for 12 months.

After I apply for a provisional license, could I still drive on my own?

Hi,

With a provisional license you cannot drive a car alone. You are able to drive with someone in the car, but they must have a clean UK full license for at least three years.

I would advise you take the theory test and practical asap within the first 12 months so you're covered going forward.

Good luck!

Thank you, but wouldn't I still be able to use the US license for the first 12 months?

And when you apply for a provisional licence it supercedes the international one, even if it is still valid, so you will need an accompanying driver if you apply for one before 12 months is up.
