In order to become a qualified driver, you'll need to apply for a provisional licence, as well as passing both a theory test and a practical test. For more details about getting your provisional licence, passing your theory test or booking your practical test, check out the information and links below, or contact Safe Driving in Hounslow today.
Before you start driving, you will need to apply for your first provisional licence. Although you can't start driving a car until you are 17 years old (minimum age restrictions may apply to different vehicles), you can still apply for a provisional licence from the age of 15 years and 9 months. Check out the Gov.uk website for more details.
Before you can take your practical test, you need to first pass the theory test. The first part of the theory test involves 50 multiple-choice questions, with 43 correct answers required for a pass. The second part is the hazard perception test, with 44 marks out of 75 needed for a pass.
To find your nearest test centre, or for any other information, take a look at the Gov.uk website.
Once you have passed your theory test, you are eligible to book your practical test, and will have 2 years in which to pass, after which time you will have to re-take the theory test.
Depending on which test centre you choose to take your practical test with, there can be waiting times of several weeks. For further information, consult the Gov.uk website.
