Learning to drive is a milestone and it should be exciting and fun.

It is more than just passing your test. Driving opens up whole new world of independence and opportunities as well as introducing new responsibilities.  At Lime Driving School we instil the skills to foster responsible, courteous and safe drivers. 

There is, after all, a lot of enjoyment and satisfaction to be gained from showing not only your skill and ability but also courtesy and consideration to those around you.

You must be at least 17 years old and have a valid provisional driving licence before you can drive on the road. Driving licences are issued by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). You can apply for your provisional licence up to three months before your 17th birthday - however it will not become valid until your are 17.

If you are receiving disability living allowance at the higher rate your provisional licence will come into effect when you are 16 and you can apply for it within three months of your 16th birthday. You can obtain a provisional licence application from your local post office. You can also apply for your provisional licence and get current information on cost and requirements online from DVLA web site.

Your eyesight – You must be able to read in good daylight, with glasses or contact lenses if you wear them, a motor vehicle number plate from a distance of 20 metres – this is about five car lengths. For older style number plates (pre 2001 September) the distance is 20.5 metres.

Before you start to drive, you must hold a valid, provisional driving licence for Great Britain or Northern Ireland and make sure that any vehicle you drive is roadworthy and properly taxed and insured.

An approved driving instructor (ADI) would have the experience, knowledge and training to teach you properly with a vehicle that conforms all the rules and regulations.

If you want to practise your driving with a friend or family member, the accompanying driver must be over the age of 21 and must have held (and still hold) a full licence, in the relevant vehicle category, for three years. 

As a learner driver you must display 'L' plates ('L' or 'D' plates in Wales) in a conspicuous position on the front and rear of the vehicle you are driving. These must be covered or removed whenever the car is driven by someone who's passed their test.

learning to drive

There’s no doubt that there are more challenges to drivers on today’s roads than ever before. So as someone who’s starting out as a driver, you’ll want the best preparation possible – from a trained instructor who’s licensed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA).

It is unlikely that anyone except an approved driving instructor (ADI) would have the experience, knowledge and training to teach you properly. Learning safe driving habits from the start will improve the safety of yourself and other road users. Recent surveys indicate that nine in ten learners who passed both theory and practical tests first time were taught by a qualified instructor.

It’s perfectly natural to be nervous about driving. A professional instructor will know how to help you get over your anxieties and put you at ease. Your first lesson will be about introduction to the controls of the cars. And your instructor will make sure that you are in a quiet, out of the way bit of road before you do any driving.
