Provisional Driving License

L Plates

Before you start learning to drive with Mad About Driving...

You need to be 17 and have a valid provisional licence. Complete a D1 form from your local Post Office or use the link below and send it to the DVLA with your passport or birth certificate and a passport-sized photo as ID. It will only take around 4weeks for your application to be processed and sent back to you, so if you want to get out in the car on your 17th birthday, you would be Mad to wait any longer!!
