You need to be at least 18 years old to obtain this licence. You will need to have a medical so you can apply for the provisional entitlement on your licence. We can arrange a medical for you and help you complete all of the forms to apply for your provisional entitlement. You will then need to complete two theory tests; a multiple choice and a hazard perception, which we can also arrange for you.
We recommend that you come in for an assessment drive once you have your provisional licence back so you can see exactly how many days training you require and obtain an accurate quotation.
