You need to be 17 years old and have a valid Provisional Licence ( you can apply for this a few months in advance) You also need to be able to read a number plate from a distance of 20.5 metres. – www.dvla.gov.uk
This is a very difficult question to answer as everyone is very different. The Driving Standards Agency ( The people who run the Driving test) says on average people that pass the test have had about 40hrs of professional tuition. Obviously if someone has some experience this figure would drop.
We would always recommend that pupils get as much practice as possible as it will increase confidence and make you feel more comfortable behind the wheel. However always ask first as you would need to reach a standard of driving first, where you would not be dangerous! -we have dual controls- your Parents don’t!!! You dont want to scare them off or they’ll never offer to take you driving again!
On a serious note: your co- driver will need to be at least 21 years old and have held a full licence for 3 years. Make sure you display ” L ” plates when you drive and ensure you have insurance cover It’s not worth taking the risk!!!
This will vary depending on the Country issuing your licence the best advice can be found on the DVLA website ( the people that issue Licences.) www.dvla.gov.uk
No, you can take the Theory test at any time. It’s best to try and learn side by side- Theory and Practical. (Please explore the website for help with this subject.)
