How to get driving licence

I want to get a driving license but I have no clue how to get it. What forms, tests do I need to complete?

hello.

first you will need to apply for a provisional driving license. see here for details:
https://www.gov.uk/apply-first-provisional-driving-licence

this will allow you to take lessons and book a theory test.
you have to pass the theory before you can sit your driving test (but you can begin taking lessons as soon as you have your provisional license).
get a theory test book from your library or buy one second hand. there are also good apps now available to help you learn the info in there.
Once you've passed your theory test you have to pass your driving test within a certain timeframe (check on google) as the theory test has an expiry date.
1. fill provisional license application form online
2. pass theory test (book online)
3. pass driving test (book online)
