Before you start

What will I need?
Before embarking on your driving career you will need a Provisional Driving Licence. This is obtained by completing a form ‘D1’ and a photo card application form ‘D750’ obtainable from Post Offices and submitting them to DVLA Swansea SA99 1AD. You must be over 17 years of age, 16 if you are in receipt of a mobility allowance.

You must be medically fit and able to read a car registration number plate at 20 metres (66 feet), using glasses or contact lenses, if needed. If you do need glasses or lenses to read the number plate, they must be worn at all times when driving.

For the full, and official, details regarding licensing visit the DVLA Home Page.

When completing the forms, please take care when answering the health and eyesight questions. If you have any health problem, declare it. This will not necessarily bar you from driving, the DVLA will give consideration to the problem, but if it is discovered later, even after you pass your driving test, you could lose your new licence.
