Getting Started

What do I need? Before you can drive on the road you need a provisional driving licence which you can obtain 2 months before your 17th Birthday. Apply online  D.V.S.A or pick up a form from the Post Office.

How many lessons before I will be ready for my test? The DSA guide for the average number of  driving lessons required by someone to prepare for the practical driving test is one and half hours per year of age plus 22 hours private practice. This can vary according to the individual but may serve as a rough guide. A lot of emphasis is placed on the number of lessons, some will be ready in just a few lessons, some will need more. A lot depends on how much of the information as been absorbed and how capable the driver is. You can speed up the process by learning the theory behind the practical.

Do I need to pass my theory test before I can start driving? No, but it is a good idea to have studied the highway code before you start driving as it will make learning to drive much easier if you know the rules of the road. There is far more information in the highway code than just road signs, so do not study to pass an exam, study to learn the rules.
You will have to pass it before you can take your practical test.
You can book your theory test by telephoning 0300 200 1122 or online by clicking here

Where can I take my theory test? The nearest test center to Keighley for the theory is Bradford Theory Test Center Caspian House (1st floor) 61 East Parade Bradford Yorkshire BD1 5EP

OK, I have passed my test, now what?
Now your legal to drive on the road but take it easy, there’s still a lot of new areas you have still to cover, why not try Pass plus. The Pass plus scheme was introduced by the Driving Standards Agency in connection with most of the UK's insurance companies. The aim is to offer further training, delivered and assessed by your instructor, to help you improve your driving skills. 
The course will cover:- Town driving - Motorways - Country driving - Dual  carriageways - All weather driving - Night driving.
When your instructor is happy you have reached the required level in each of the topics, you will receive a certificate from the DSA which you can use to receive your insurance discount.
The course not only helps with the cost of your insurance but will considerably help your driving confidence and skill, giving you tips and assistance that normally takes years to learn. In many cases the discount received off your insurance far out ways the cost of this course and in many cases insurers are asking for this type of scheme to have been completed before they will insure you.

What's the point of P-Plates?
They show people you’re new on the road and most other drivers will give you a bit more time and consideration. Drivers in their first 2 years of driving after passing the test are at high risk! Over a thousand new drivers lives are lost each year on UK roads. New drivers only make up 7% of the drivers in the UK but have 12% of accidents that cause injury. After the first two years of a driver passing their test, research shows that the probability of having an accident that causes injury is nearly halved.
