Before you can begin taking driving lessons with Crystal School of Motoring, you will require a mandatory provisional driving licence.
How do I get my provisional licence?
You can go to any main Post Office and collect an application form called Form D1. You also need to bring an up-to-date passport sized colour photograph of yourself which must be taken against a light background, and signed on the reverse by a professional (e.g. teacher, accountant, doctor) who has known you personally for at least 2 years. Please also bring another form of original ID (e.g. valid passport or birth certificate). The Post Office also offers a form-checking service for a small fee.
Alternatively, you can print off the form online here.
You can apply for your provisional licence up to three months before your seventeenth birthday (however, it will not become valid until you are seventeen).
What about eyesight?
Before you begin you must be able to read a vehicle number plate with letters 79.4mm (3.1inches) high at a minimum distance of 20.5metres (about 67feet). If you wear glasses or contact lenses to read the number plate you must wear them during the test and whenever you drive.
