where to start?
Your first job is to get a provisional driving licence. You must have one of these before you can start learning to drive. You can either apply for one online at www.dvla.gov.uk, or pick up a D1 form from the Post Office.
The provisional licence allows you to legally drive on public roads only if you are supervised by someone aged 21 or over, who has held a full EC/EEA licence for at least 3 years. This stands until you pass your driving test.
Other legal requirements:
You must be 17 or over*
*Unless you are disabled and receive mobility allowance, in which case you must be 16 or over
Your eyesight also has to meet a minimum standard (you have to be able to read a car number plate from 20.5m). If you can’t, a trip to the opticians is in order before you get behind the wheel.
Once all of these things are sorted, the next step is to contact Mint to arrange your fantastic introductory offer and book a great value course!
